The First.

So, I've become intrigued with this whole "refashioning" thing. You know, reusing, restyling, reconstructing clothing that you already own or have thrifted.
I have more than a sufficient amount of stain t-shirts. I also have a lot of t-shirts with mysterious little holes by the waistband. I theorize that these are victims of my zipper, but I have yet to see it happen, so I cannot be 100% sure.
Anyhow, I am attempting to refashion one of my peculiarly holed t-shirts. I had some scraps from a t-shirt I made my sister, I started yesterday, but am unhappy with the result. I need to reconstruct the reconstruction.
Last night we had veggie burritos for dinner: red peppers, green peppers, onion, garlic, tomatoes, black beans, kidney beans, corn, misc. spices/herbs. We (me and Abby) have been making our own tortillas. Very easy. Very delicious. Try it.

When I think of all of the clothes I have tossed (donated into bins at Rite Aid) that could have been repurposed, I cringe. I am now saving everything. Everything is scrap/potential sewing material.

And that is what I'm doing too. But then I worry that I'll just have a stash of stained, holed clothing.
