Muffin’s Top

No, that is not a typo. This is Muffin’s top becuase my super cute husband, muffin picked this one out for me 🙂

IMG_4334I asked him to venture to my favorite thrift shop and pick out a .10 cent garment for me. I’ve not had much inspiration lately and I thought if he picked something out for me, it might ignite the creative juices…

I started by giving it a dye bath. After my near death experience stove-top, I decided to perform this one in the washing machine 🙂

‘lil suicide action.

It definitely came out more “Scarlet” than “Apple” but that’s what you get when you dye… the color on the bottle is just a concept rather than actual representation of the color 🙂

You know the drill…

It was still a little big, so I paired it with a belt I absolutely adore but never wear…

Nancy Zieman, the spokeswoman for Baby Lock herself watched this one unfold.IMG_4378Maybe it’s the horrible florescent lighting. Maybe it’s my blatant disregard for real garment construction. Maybe it’s that there’s a $1 price tag on her book… she seems to be giving me “the glare.”

Nancy sees all!

You may not be able to see it very well, but I’m wearing a tank top refashion as well. This one dates way back in the archives 🙂 *Further proof I wear something til it, literally, falls off of me.

I just may have him pick out all my refashions 😉
