I am thinking you could sell those on ebay and make some $$$$$$#. When I wear the overalls I paint murals in with spilled paint from every mural I have ever done all over them, People want to know where I bought them. ;) I want to run out and paint a pair of overalls like that, I love um!
Goodwill here I come :() Deborah

Sue K said...

Martha, I LOVE you!!! You definitely made me smile this morning! You are right, I want a pair just like them! I'll bet you had fun painting them. I'm going to do some "art" on my painting apron!

Kelly Warren said...

Yay! Yay! Yay! Those are the best ever. What a way to save a pair of pants. :-)

Claire M said...

Ah what fun! Making lemonade out of lemons. I'm sure you'll be smiling every time you wear these.

What sort of paint did you use on the fabric?

Createology said...

What a great salvage from such a drop of color accident. Now you have "designer altered coutoure". Pretty fancy for painter's pants! Wonderfully done Martha. Happy creating...

Martha,

Way to go girl!!! Your mind must never stop - I love what you have done, and so appropriate for Earth Day.

Another great job.....

Buffy said...

Hi Martha,I was going to tell you to use ice,just rub it in over the stain but I also use a soap called hogwash,I have it at my real store (country store)that gets everything out from choc to blood and taco sause,coffee.I just don't know where you could find it where you live,I have seen it in country living magazines where you can order it,if you want some just email me your address and I'll send you a bar,my email is demugleedolls@yahoo.com. It just might take me awhile to send it to you.

Oh wow Martha! these pants are so cool! I love them. You are gonna get all kinds of compliments and looks wearing these. I bet you could make a load of $ selling them on ebay, but I wouldn't want to give them up to anyone else. Now take a picture for us of you wearing these please. What a way to make lemons out of lemonade!!

Julie Bagamary said...

So cute however I admit, you are braver to wear them than me.

Jane Farr said...
