Brought to you by some sketchy shots from my phone - my results from KCW day four. This technically probably didn't take an hour. But I overdid it on other days, and it took time to go to Office Depot to get fabric sharpies. So, meh.
Am I the only one who is way too excited by office supply stores? Even when I was a kid I loved when my parents would take me into the little Halls office supply in town. The sections with pens, pencils, art paper, kneaded erasers etc just sucked me in. Anyway.....
A couple of weeks ago I made this tee for Clover, who I knew probably wouldn't wear it. But the weather is getting warmer, and I was hoping she would lift her ban on short sleeves if I offered to put something cute on the front. She was less enthused than I had hoped, but her little sister is pretty wild about getting handmade clothes from me right now. So without being worn once, it was handmedowned to Violet. She then promptly put it on and dripped quesadilla grease all over it. Perfect.
It's a Made By Rae flashback skinny tee in 3T that I made out of a men's tee from Old Navy clearance. Hey, 75 cents for cotton knit aint bad. Somehow, I thought I could squeak two little tees from the one shirt, but it wasn't big enough and had short sleeves too. Oops. Guess I shouldn't have cut around the graphic on the front to save it for the second tee.
So about the goggles, I had been floating this idea in my head for a little bit because Violet's nickname is Goggles, and I envision a pair of steampunkish goggles when I think of her. I traced an image I found on google and then made my version out of it on freezer paper, just using the bare outline of it. Jacquard fabric paint in yellow went on and mostly dried, and then I (gleefully and impatiently) ripped the freezer paper off to try embellishing the yellow blob with my brand new fabric sharpie.
And there you have it. A shirt you will probably never see on another two year old.
Her reaction when she saw it? "*gaaaasp* you made that for ME? Awww! Fanks Ama!" She calls me Ama. It makes me melt.
