I made this cute little shirt a little longer so my "Happy Little Camper" can keep wearing it this fall. I found an unloved tank top which was the perfect diameter to the shirt and after pinning it down really well, it took about four minutes to sew. I cut off the rest of the tank top to use for a rag, and before I could even put it away in my rag drawer, I found a good use for it: Waxing my boots!
I adore cowboy boots and maybe someday I'll have a real pair. But for now, what I have are these $35 Target brand boots. They came in grey, which is not a fun color and the toes scuffed off almost immediately. I spray painted them red (YIKES, they were really red) and then rubbed an antiquing wax all over to tone it down a bit. I wore them out last weekend in the rain, and can already see how the paint is starting to flake off. Bummer. Maybe spray paint isn't the best shoe refashion method......Any suggestions?
