My sweet daughter, the one of You Tube fame (although in my opinion she is doing everything to stay obscure, like those poor starving artists that will only get recognized later in life). Well she had made this t-shirt years ago.
Oh did I ever tell you the girls had a t-shirt business. The older one was in charge of the finances and the younger Miss You Tube, was the creative genius. She would sit there and painsakingly copy images onto t-shirts. It was a lot, lot of work, and she burned out after a few months of doing it. But it was her first taste of running a business.
Back to the t-shirt. Of course she’s all grown up now and she doesn’t wear it any more. She wanted to get rid of it. But I, being the proud mama, was not about to let her throw it out! Instead I easily repurposed it into wall art.
Instead I sewed some pretty buttons on top of the smudge.
I used to do a lot of embroidery when I was younger (read before kids) but now I don’t have time at all. It was always a fun and relaxing activity for me.
I also added a brown cord and a black ribbon so I could hang the hoop on the wall. The brown cord matches the wood of the hoop and of course the black goes with her drawing.
For the drawing she used fabric paint so it won’t come off.
Now spill the beans! I know your kids or nieces and nephews create masterpieces all the time. What do you do with them? Are you a hoarder like me or do you get rid of little gems like this?
