the un-classic white tee

30 Sep

it’s safe to say that nothing is as easy to alter as a plain white t (and i’m not talking about the band).  i can’t count the number of halloween costumes i’ve had that were made in my college dorm room with white t-shirts and some sort of puff-paint design on the front.  so, i am super excited to hang out with my favorite crowd of charlotte crafting inspiration, crown town handmade, for their make-out session tonight!

crown town handmade is a group of etsy sellers and DIY-ers in the charlotte area and they put out some fantastic work.  i can promise that you’ll be seeing some of their wares on this blog from time to time.  this wonderful collective hosts a monthly craft night lovingly known as make-out sessions.  tonight is the make-out session for october and the craft on the schedule is t-shirt revamping.   i am so ready to get my hands dirty as i have a few shirts that have already decided to do the same and need a little love.  if you’re in the charlotte area, make sure you stop by and support these lovely crafters! 

details: 7:30 pm at patchwerk playhaus, in the back room of century vintage, 1508 central ave., charlotte, 28205.  enter in the alley past soul gastrolounge and snug harbor. optional BYOB, $5 corking fee per container/6 pack. sodas for sale.  friendly faces and comfy couches to park your toosh.

and while we’re taking about t-shirts, i’ve seen this project at p.s. i made this (a great DIY project site that also just launched a book) a while ago and i’ve been dying to try it out.  it sounds easy enough for the non-sewing novice such as myself, but i have a feeling that as soon as i’d start to thread my needle, i’d just throw my hands up in the air and walk away (very beyonce-like).  maybe tonight’s make-out session will give me some motivation to actually try this out.  results (most likely hilarious) will be posted!
