Refash Fit For The King

I have been listening to Elvis Radio on Sirus/XM radio in my new car and all week they have been talking how much Elvis loved football. Since I had no inspiration for a Superbowl refash I decided to make an Elvis thememed shirt. What better way to remember Elvis than with his favorite sport!?

I​ started​ with this royal blue tank top. (Thank you Sally for modeling it)

And this scrap shirt. Doesn't look like a scrap you say?

How about now? I harvested material from this shirt for another refash.

I made some stencils...(See where this is going?)

Yep good ol' fabric paint!

I planned on using the sleeves of my scrap shirt and adding them to the tank top.

While I was taking off the sleeves I also took off the pocket (to use sometime later)

And the buttons as well!

I have to admit I almost scrapped this project after I pinned on the sleeves. I really was not happy with where this was going, but I talked myself out of it. I said 'it won't be that bad, just go for it'

The husband and I were invited to watch the game with my parents in The Man Cave! It's tradition that the 4 of us get together for the Superbowl festivities! (Thankful we didn't get snowed in like last year).

Our very own Lombardi trophy! My dad made this back in 1998!

Whelp, I was pleasantly surprised and happy I just went with it!

Happy Refashioning!!!
