The "Chop it, Paint it, Wear it" Top

The Facts

Fabric | A turtleneck I got in my first Freecycle haul. It's a medium, possibly petite, from St. John's Bay.

Patterns | None, refashioned on the fly.

Year | Current.

Notions | Thread, a toothbrush, a plastic lid and Gocco paint.

Time to complete | About a half hour/three quarters of an hour. Mostly fiddling with the colors and layers and then finally adding the oval shaped stamping using the deodorant lid.

First worn | To take my daughter to her summer program.

Wear again? | I can't honestly say that I'm sure this will get worn again. I really dislike tops that come way up on my chest and neck like this. I felt like I was tugging at it every couple of minutes. I loved painting on it, though. So, I will use that technique again.

Total price | Let’s call it free. The top was free and I've had that Gocco paint for ages and ages.
