A Real Life Before and After

If you’ve read Merrick’s blog, you know she’s a pretty brilliant seamstress.

Fortunately, she’s not the only one in the family with sewing skills. I too can take something ordinary and make it almost unrecognizable.

Or, this might be why my local Old Navy is in no danger of going out of business soon.

I expect this refashion will be taking Pinterest by storm in no time at all. After all, practically anyone could do it.

  1. LOL!!! I lament the fact (almost every day now with so many blogs and Pinterest) that my sewing skills are sadly lacking. Thanks for the laugh!

  2. I am of this school. I believe cutting said project up into rags aids my success in the pursuit of a striking, unrecognisable "After" …and I feel I have repurposed, and so really…nothing bad happened here. Right?!

  3. I nearly fell out of my chair. I need you in my life- I mean you are but I want you closer. Say, next door.

    On another note we made your ranch dressing and Seth said, "I may call Janssen myself to thank her- which is big because I hate calling people. You MUST stay friends with that girl."

  4. Haha! Thanks for that! Every time I see something cool your sister did I feel totally inadequate! I too can sew, but not clothing I want to wear!
