I finished this super easy shirt last night after I got home from work- I love it. I also love this red and brown together- so striking and brilliant.
I also gave up the last bit of my favorite red dotted fabric. I found this at Joanns a few summers ago in the clearance section and would buy a few yards each time I shopped there…now it’s gone!
I was going to wait and photograph the coordinating skirt I will be making, but I just could not wait. The skirt will be a simple A-line style with appliqued flowers. I think I will use freezer paper for the applique process.
Anyway, thanks to all of you that have been so nice to comment this week. I am kicking myself for not always responding individually. I love comments- LOVE them. Some of you had some good questions about the “fun roll” I made, here are the details:
- I DID use a placemat for the actual “roll”. I found it on clearance at Target and it was perfect. It could be a bit bigger, but I was happy with the end result.
- I used a duck cloth canvas for the driving mat. I gessoed the canvas before painting the design.
- As far as the wooden figures go, I can find them pretty easily at my local craft stores. I don’t know what to say…perhaps I need to become a supplier!
Also, just something I am kicking around in my head…would it be insane if I joined the many “etsy” stores on-line? I’m thinking of making some simple shirts, skirts, “fun rolls”, etc. I just feel a bit timid. Hmmm.
Sorry for not including pattern information, duh.
