{Friday Feature}

Handkerchief fan and bleached out shirt....



for the fans I went and bought some handkerchief at hobby lobby for 99cents.

You just fold it like you would with a fan and tie together in the middle.

Then you take another and do the same.

Once I fanned them out I just stapled them together.

After that the middle needed a little something extra so I made a fabric flower

out of left over scraps.

And...Walla!

I'm going to hang these at different lengths all down my window.

*note to self...take picture of the process

*inspired by Martha Stewart


When I saw this HERE at this Lovely blog...I knew I had to do it!

Again...got the shirts at hobby  lobby on sale (less than $2 a piece)

Spray bottle (or water guns) dollar store $1

Broke out the bleach and rubber gloves .....
and this is what you get.....
Look at their faces : )

Even though they didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted to (probably b/c I didn't use freezer paper)

at least they had fun!
