So, I guess ‘cuz I’m short and small, people have always given me their hand-me-downs. This happened in my family because I was the youngest, but then in high school, I started getting friend’s clothes that they had grown out of. I was glad to get clothes that belonged to other people – I didn’t always like them, but sometimes I’d get something that I had really liked seeing my friends wear, and suddenly it would me mine! So a few weeks ago, a friend from church gave me this tank top. It has lace on the top and is pretty cute, but I really can’t wear it since I don’t have the chest to fill out the scoop neck – it really just makes me look flatter, and I could never lean forward, which is really impractical for a mom. I knew she liked it because she gave it to me instead of sending it to Goodwill so I kept it in my closet. Then later I saw a picture of a bag that reminded me of the tank top. I started working on it, wondering if my friend would think I was a freak for cutting up her tank top and turning it into a purse for her, since it’s just not a very normal thing, you know.
I gave it to her on Sunday, and she seemed genuinely thrilled to have it! I am SO happy with how it turned out!
