Not Bad For 79 Cents
I was thrilled when I found a long sleeve, brown t-shirt in my size on the clearance rack at the thrift store (yes, a clearance rack at the thrift store - sounds like an oxymoron). I especially loved the yellow stitching up the side seam, but I knew the crown had to go.
A few square inches of fabric and a small struggle with the sewing machine and my mushroom tee was born. I believe I was inspired by our moist weekend - moisture always reminds me of mushrooms.
I proudly wore my mushroom tee to the library yesterday, but on my way out I passed a ginkgo tree and thought, doh! I could have put a golden ginkgo leaf over the crown! Ah, the blessing and curse of appliques - endless possibilities. I'll just have to find another t-shirt.
