Channeling Chanel



Here's the DIY as promised! I'm trying to get all my important posts in before I leave! The shirt was generally a pretty easy project, the hardest part was in the sizing and alighnment of the letters, which I'm still not really satisfied with. I wish I could redo the double C's because they are just a little too big for my liking. Other than that I'm really happy with the project!
While we're on the subject of projects, I thought I might share a very special project I did for the beautiful and sweet Stylish Wanderer. I made her a pair of bleached shorts for the summer! Bleaching is always really fun so I took her up on an offer to make a pair for her and ended up scouring the thrift store for a good pair of shorts. I went home, bleached them, sent them off, and now they're on her blog! Here's a couple of the pictures and the link to her post-

You truly are the queen of DIY's! This T shirt looks sooo good - I'm very impressed.

Your summer camp pics were great too - I wish we had more stuff like that over here in the UK. You have the best tan ever now as well! :) x
