Lookee see what I made!

Listen to what an awesome DIY hipster/cool person I was today. (The words "hipster" and "cool" are interchangeable, just so you know.)

So I went to the thrift store to grab an old t-shirt that I could cut up and make into a necklace scarf thingy. 
And if that wasn't enough on its own, after picking out said t-shirt, I found myself casually browsing through the racks..."Oh! This is cute!"..."I like this, too!"..."$3!? Yup, I'll try that on."...and before I knew it...
I was thrifting. Just like a real life hipster/cool person! 
Believe it.

Back at home, I turned this shirt...


...into this necklace scarf thingy. (Pretty sure that's what they're calling them on the streets.)

And check it out- it's not only super hip, but it's also versatile. What more could you ask for in a necklace scarfy thingy???


And if your mind hasn't already exploded with amazingness...
well, then maybe we shouldn't be friends, actually. 

But here's my favorite part of this story: 

While I was busy in the DIY zone, Chas walked by my little pile of scraps and exclaimed, 
"And look! You made underpants!"

Oh my goodness Chas cracks me up! Underpants, really Chas?!? That necklace thingy is super cute, and definitely what the hipster/cool kids are wearing... Unfortunately I'm a hipster/cool kid imposter so I use all the lingo incorrectly. Oh well! Haha!
