I Heart DIY

It's really no secret that I heart DIY. I swear if only I knew carpentry & upholstery I'd be set for life. (hmm or maybe only for my secret fantasies of HGTV)
Well anywhoo I am always experimenting with DIY tutorials.
Some are good, some are bad, and some I just screw up beyond repair. 
The latest is a DIY safety-pin tank from P.S. I made this
The inspiration is much more detailed, but I used my current summer color obsessions to steer my version.
For my version
1. Coral Tank from Forever 21 around $400 I think.
2. Gold safety pins from sewing shop $6.00 (but I still have tons left)
3. Aqua beads $?
You like? Does anyone wear size small? It turns out I can't wear this :( It shrank in the wash ( I washed the tank when I bought it) & I didn't realize it! I didn't realize it that is, until I tried to proudly display my new craft. It's a bit too snug on me to look as cute as it should, so if you feel it may fit you & you want a slightly embellished tank free of charge, email me.  Everyone else feel free to just steal this DIY away for yourself! So cute.

P.S. I felt I should add that this project rocked because I just pin-ed away while watching T.V., drinking wine, etc etc. No being trapped by a glue gun or wall sockets! In case you needed more reasons to try this at home.
