Aloha!

I have to say, I love Hawaiian printed stuff.  Shirts, Dresses, Bags, whatever…I dig it.  It makes me feel like I’m miles away, sipping on an exotic beverage with an umbrella in it.  🙂

Sadly, this top is just too big for me, and not something I would ever wear, except maybe as a swimsuit coverup. 

I decided to make it a bit more practical.

Chop!

Slice!

See where I’m going here?

I finished all of my raw edges, starting with the bottom.

Stitchin’ that new hem!

Then, I finished the sides!

I pressed my new hems, and was all done!
