Say it with your shirt!
So one day I was browsing around, Polyvore.com , and I saw this shirt, And It cost $50, I love it so much I decided to make it and share my technique, with you. My version caused around $10 *Note* This has nothing to do with twilight fanaticism...lol Nothing against you, I just really like True Blood a lot more. Hope to see a lot of responses and versions. Have a lovely day! ^__^
