SHIRT REFASHION: PIVOT! PIVOT! PIVOT!
PIVOT! PIVOT! PIVOT! I absolutely love that episode of Friends, where Ross buys a new sofa and decides to move it by himself (with Rachel’s reluctant help). I’m not sure what made me think of that particular scene, but I knew I needed a PIVOT! shirt. With my bleach pen in hand, I carefully wrote “pivot” on a blank black shirt.
Unfortunately, my carefully placed letters and dots were off a teeny bit off center. What the poop?!? I tried to fix the issue the best I could by adding a second dot between the P and I, but the two dots just looked funny and I hated it. On the verge of throwing the shirt away, I had a really bad idea in mind.
Would it be possible to cover the second dot and the P with a black Sharpie marker and then rebleach it? I thought the idea was brilliant, but Charlie strongly disagreed. I reluctantly agreed with his assessment and then immediately thought of another brilliant idea. Just make the first dot into a stick figure.
BRILLIANT! And I love it! With a few retouches with the bleach pen, I can’t wait to wear shirt on a lazy day. To make the T-shirt perfect, I just need to fix the sleeves but I’ll save that project for another day. Right now, I need to find my Friends DVD with the awesome “Pivot” episode.
