Happy St. Patty's Day!! To celebrate my heritage today as well as the kick off of the basketball tournament (woo hoo!!) I decided to get a little crafty with a tank, some dye and a few extra goodies!!
My before shot...
Wanna see the rundown?
I dyed my tank on the stove top - because it was just the small tank, I grabbed my "dye pot' and went to town. After ringing out and drying, I took some fun lace from my stash and began stitching it around the arm holes.
I next grabbed some fun iron-ons I snagged from my fabric store and put together a little jersey-style back. Quick and easy iron on's are my favorite!!
And, speaking of Jersey, in true Pauly D fashion..."IT'S T-SHIRT TIIIIME!!"
Rit dyed tank, lace around the sleeves, shamrock stickers and...
...temporary tattoo time!! I chose a shamrock in a big circular rainbow.
...which tied so nicely into the back of my tank. Ironed on letters and numbers with a little bit of sequin trim around the 17. It was also the crazy first day of the NCAA tourney, so I got a little sporty while being green today!
I ran into my friend Mr. Ross Mathews, looking super, super svelt in a green jacket. (PS, he was just named a Jenny Craig's new spokesperson - yay!! Check out his blog post here!!)
After handing out stickers, we realized the leprechaun had a very, very similar resemblance to MRC - same beard, rockin' a hat...he had a little pal on his shoulder all night!
We had one pickle to share and opted not to have a 'Picklegate' instance occur again like it had in past years...
...one pickle on a plate like this? Come on!!
The live Irish band, The Plowboys, rocked the stage yet again this year and we clapped and swung around during "Whiskey in a Jar" and swayed to "Danny Boy".
Another fun year with the Tam O'Shanters crew...
...hope there was a little pot of gold for all of you this year!
