Project of the day *edited*


I became inspired to make some Ethiopia tshirts for my family, and then I thought, some of my fellow Ethiopia lovers might enjoy them as well. I plan to do some adult versions as well, but I picked up these "recycled" shirts today. New shirts will be $15 for kids and around $20 for adults. Of course, the proceeds go to our adoption fund! If you want me to make a custom one for you, just email me and let me know size/color and if it's boy girl. And maybe which style below you like and I"ll do my best to duplicate it! erynkesler@gmail.com

ps...if you want to link me up on your blog, I'd be forever grateful! You can copy and paste the first photo if you want. Thanks, I appreciate your support!

Here's my model sporting his new Ethiopia "superstar" shirt as he likes to call it


Here is a girls Old Navy shirt/dress size small. I think it's comparable to a size 5/6 and could be a longer dress for a littler girl. It's fushia, and is altered with Africa on the lower left side and ethiopia stained into Africa. $12





Here is another girls Old Navy hot pink tee, size 5T. Altered with Africa and Ethiopia stained across the chest. $12




Here is a boys green tshirt, size small (I'd guess 2 or 3T). Ethiopia stained across the front and Africa on the belly. $10.




All are totally unique and hand stained, so are somewhat "irregular" that is part of the altered charm. These 3 are recycled shirts from a local resale shop but are in great condition. Please email me if you're interested in purchasing and I'll paypal you an invoice. Shipping not included...Thanks for looking!erynkesler@gmail.com

I just commented on your facebook-- but now I see you have them on your blog. I'd LOVE a girls and a boys one, but I guess I'll have to wait till you make more "new" ones so I can get correct sizes!! Looking forward to it. These are cute!! :)

Wow!! As if I'm not already impressed by you, my amazing, wonderful and talented friend... there you go, blowing me away again! Those are AWESOME!

My dear...you are super talented. Can I have the pink dress/shirt? Ellie would love that. And I'd also love a boys 5/6 (small) or 7/8(medium), and a boys 6-12 month onesie or t-shirt. Gotta outfit all my kids! And I'd totally buy shirts for me and Colin if you made adult ones too. I love recycled clothes, and clothes that support things that matter. You hit the nail on the head with this idea! So creative, so creative...

We need 3 of these babies- girls size 7/8, boys size 3T and 5T. I will send you a check if that is the best way to do it. Let me know if you can do these sizes.
