Today I had a fun time playing with the t-shirts I dyed in the Summer. This picture doesn't do the bright colours justice, but I thought it was time I sorted them out and shared them here. They are all made from brand new, plain white t-shirts and were originally going to be for sale. I want to do a lot with them before that though, and their progress will be shown here.
Here are two vests that will most likely have a little embelishment in the form of fabric paints and may end up in the Etsy or Folksy shop.
This long sleeved t-shirt is a purply colour with a laced up design on the sleeves. I don't think it needs much doing to it.
This one is strictly for me as I just love it to bits. This photos doesn't show how vibrant the colours really are.
This is a lopsided picture of my favourite shirt. I bought it from a market stall specialising in Fair Trade goods, and the colours are a yummy mix of oranges and browns. However, it looks like a sack of spuds on me, so I'm going to radically customise it.
Which brings me nicely to these next two items. Remember the two cardigans that I felted on a hot wash? Well, this one shrunk from a large man's size, to something that would fit my daughter. I've set to with the scissors, and have lots of ideas for it, but that will have to wait until tomorrow!
This was the baggy cream cardigan that went in with the green one above. I had planned to dye it a dark orange, but instead it turned a lovely grey/green colour as the colour leaked from the one above. I've made some orange accessories and will show you the progress as the days go by. I've a huge stash of clothes to work through, so it should be interesting in the next few weeks as I enrich my boring wardrobe with as little cost as possible.
