tees in Etsy!

with a flat tire on my bicycle and a hectic week,
i decided to stay in tonight
and make a tee to sell on Etsy.

this is the second of its kind.
the first was made for my good friend L for her birthday
[still waiting for a photo to show]

the design is very similar.

side view.
blossom petals appliqued on the front and back, with vintage buttons details.

i found a button that matches the aqua pin striped fabric perfectly.
so i sewed it into the top left shoulder of the tee. (see item on Etsy)
balances it well.

button details. fluorescent colors are so in right now.

this is the first of many tees i hope to sell. check it out!

my Harry Potter obsession has returned.

Unique and beautiful! I like the aqua and black together, and the placement of the leaves. Those buttons are so fun too. Isn't design the funnest?

I'll have to wait to check etsy when I return to work next week with high speed. :D

How fun, Lesley. I can't believe we didn't check out all your Etsy stuff when we were there with you. What were we thinking?!

Our HP book was ordered months ago and now the new movie will soon be out. Yup. Lots to get excited about. :)
