I wanted to wear the toile

So I made a toile lobster. First, since the toile was very cheap/thin, I ironed a small piece to some plastic silk backing to thicken the fabric. Then I traced traced my lobster onto the fabric, meticulously sewed the edges onto an H&M tank top ($5.50). I've washed it a few times to see if its durable, and only a little leg came undone. Don't ask me why I like lobsters. I just do (not for eating!) When I was 15 I bought a lobster pin at Don Apparel in Buffalo, and since I've enjoyed crustaceans in the design respect. This project took about an hour from start to finish.

Don Apparel in Buffalo?! why, that's right around the corner from me... I don't know you, but live in buffalo (not a native though) and actually a friend just had a link in her blog that said "if you don't read this we're not friends"- linking to you. So anyway... rambling... yay buffalo shoutout!
