he is risen.

love crosses. love leopard.
so when the first black tee with a leopard cross appeared
on the blogosphere, i knew i had to have one.
unfortunately, i can't get myself to buy something
i know i can make.
it took several months, but i finally got around to doing it.
i had my black tee and leopard material ready to go, when i decided to do some last minute inspirational browsing for size and placement of my cross. a blogger had posted an inspirational collage of all things she loved, including a leopard cross on the back of a white shirt.
it was just so...fresh.
so i revived a never used white sweater by giving it a
fresh coat of leopard.

** cross my heart back, hope to d.i.y. **

  1. No way. You made that??? Ah it looks SO awesome!! This totally makes me wish I could sew! (Or that I could like sewing... but I despise it) I need to become really really good friends with sewers :)
