it is my good friend's birthday today
we celebrated on Tuesday of this week, and i made her a shirt using my Graffiti Butterfly pattern.
the applique was a bit different than my sweaters, being a tshirt, i felt it needed a bit more interest. the two petals twisted from the front to the back. i used the new fabric i bought, the white with black and gray seeds speckled on a black shirt, with black buttons and bright neon blue thread.
of course, i didn't take a photo before i gave it to her.
hopefully one of these days i'll see her and take one of her actually wearing it. but i believe it is the beginning of a few things.
(1) a tax ID
(2) tshirt embroidery/applique
(3) visiting boutiques with my designs
i've just got to do it. i'll go with one sweater and one shirt, maybe some of my jewelry, and see if i can sell anything.
i did list a new sweater! i did have this one listed, but didn't like the way i had appliqued. so i changed it using some of the new fabric i bought last weekend.
using more vintage buttons. i added a few one of my favorites to the front.
the large green button. it is so one of a kind. you might not be able to tell from the photo, but it's a bit sparkly, and just wonderful.
