Daisy Dukes Transformation

For some reason I couldn't bring myself to do any crafts for July 4th.  Day after day I looked at all of the adorable & patriotic projects that everyone was kickin out to celebrate the day but I couldn't find the motivation to join in.  I've been flying the American flag since Memorial Day so I'm not un-American but when it came time to making something... Nothing!

And then on Sunday afternoon as the brownies were baking to take to our party it suddenly hit me!  I desperately needed to decorate my clothes in red, white & blue.  Sheeesh!  procrastination to the nth degree I'm telling ya! *I'd have some words for my kids about that kind of behavior*!!

I flew into action with super human speed and whipped out what I can only describe as my Daisy Duke shorts embellished with fabric rosette flowers.  I was in such a collosal rush that I hot glued them right to my shorts while I was still wearing them! : )  * I can't believe I'm posting my worn shorts!! Forgive me?*

Well, Ok! so now it's July 8th and I've had about all I can take of the Daisy Dukes.  I don't think I can put them through the wash since I hot glued them, can I?  I decided against it but I still wanted the rosettes.  I wanted to use them for my original idea...

Gosh! I love multi-purpose & versatility!!

I read on another blog where someone had put rosettes on a tshirt with hot glue and were able to run them through the wash. This is really cute, and I love the versatility!!
