Flop or Flourish Motivotions Day- 8 kids -Tshirts into tank tops

Posted by Amy DeWitt on 6:41 PM
Today we managed to surprise our pastor and his wife with a surprise party. Pastor's birthday and anniversary were this past week. We honored them in our service with a video of birthday/anniversary greetings, special thank-you's and a dinner afterwards.
 I know they appreciated all the kind words. In Romans, there is a short passage that came to mind as we honored them.

Romans 12:10

The Message (MSG)
9-10Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.
(Taken from )

What a good reminder for us. This should be true of every relationship in our lives!

Today's Flourish actually came from my daughter, Ally. This was her project, so I gave her basic instructions and let her roll with it.
She took an old shirt that was way too long. It's Angelica because she is the oldest cousin, and she likes to boss the younger cousins around.
She cut off both sleeves just inside the seems.
The top was cut off straight across.
She pinned down about 1.5 inches on both sides.
Taking it to the machine, she sewed the pinned-down strips to make a tube.
I took a wire hanger and made a hook. Pushing it through the tube, I grabbed onto the string that would make the ties and pulled the strings through the tubes.
After both strings were added for ties, it looked like this.
From plain T-shirt, to cute tank in about 10 minutes.

And of course, when she was done, little sister wanted one as well....

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you've been inspired!
