quick fix

tanks

Here’s a quick fix that I just had to make.  I had gotten some plain tank tops from Old Navy earlier this summer with the intention of making something cool with them.  So grab some of your cutest scraps and make patches!  And if you think you don’t have enough cute scraps, do what I did and order some.  I broke down and got some of the sought after Heather Ross munki munki prints from a shop on etsy (which is all out as of now), but you can still find some here and here

Now if I could only prevent ice cream and popsicles from spilling all over these puppies we’d be in business!

{I also added a smaller patch at the back of shirt, just for fun!}
I have one more tank top refashion coming up for next week, so I’ll just keep you on your toes for that one. 
p.s. i love my hydrangeas, wish they would stay this way forever…

    yay, I have some of that bicycle fabric too and have been wondering what to do with it – this is so super cute!

    Oh, absolute love! Especially the bicycle print one. I made a pillow for Hannah log cabin style centered around that same bike! :)

    I am SO doing this to some of my kids shirts!

    Love your hydrangeas. Mine are just coming in. They have a blueish tint to them.

    very, very cute Anna! your hydrangeas are beautiful! is it acidic soil that makes them more purpley? or do I have that backwards?

    really love those shirts, what a wonderful idea! perhaps some fashionable bibs to save them from the ice cream 😉

    Love the idea! Just moments ago I was sorting through scraps and came across the HR bikes print. Now I know what I will do with it!

    Super cute. Perfect for dripping popsicles. You’ll smile every time you’re putting them in the wash!

    I have a purple hydrangea. A color I would love to see in fabric.

    Hey you just gave me a brilliant idea to make tank tops to go with the pajama pants I have been making….. Thanks… :)

  19. Heather Ross!! I love it! I only have a few snippets and I’m way too stingy to use them.

    Those tanks are too cute!
