Never be afraid to try something new.

I tried my hand at re-dying fabric, and now I'm totally pro. {ha....not.}

See this shirt?

Once upon a time I accidentally got some bleach on it. 

And I promise it's really an olive green shirt, not a gray one.

When I was at JoAnn's the other day, I saw that they had fabric dye on sale! So I picked up some color remover for 97 cents, and some dye for a buck-fifty, and set out to save my bleach-stained shirt.

After soaking my shirt in the color remover for twice the amount of recommended time, I decided to use bleach to lighten the shirt the rest of the way.

Color remover got me this far....

And bleach got me to a nice neutral cream color.

After I'd rinsed the shirt in cold water, I re-dyed it.

Ta-daaaa! New bright color PLUS no bleach stains.


I also tried my hand at some chevron nails....

....which I love. 

Just use tape to mark off the designs!

Now go try something new. {shoo.}
