Teal Steal

Refashioning is alway a great way to challenge your creativity.  What better project can a woman ask for that to start off with an empty canvas (a plain cotton t-shirt) and find a way to make it more feminine.  Using Victorian Embroidery as an inspiration, helps with this challenge.  Victorian embroidery using silk ribbon is a rewarding experience at embellishing.  Want a look at the finish product–well, here goes—Victorian Touches  Now, isn’t this better than a simple t-shirt.  Now for some side views…  the left side —
