So I made this using Merrick's Sailtboat Tee tutorial. It was meant to be a trial run because I didn't have the sponge paintbrush that it called for, but I really like how it turned out - even though the freezer paper was barely ironed on as I painted. (Maybe it takes holding the iron in one place for a lot longer?)
At first I planned to use a new dish sponge, but then I realized that was too big so I used cotton balls. There's really only one little mistake - on the right side of the dark blue sail!
Previously, this wasn't a shirt I wore in public because there are faded bleach areas on the back, but I might like this too much now! The solution? Wear this cream sweater on top:
Is the skirt too daring of a pairing? ; ] (I truly do write poetry.)
Some friend has got to be honest about that!
Do flowers and sailboats work?
Guess what. It's really a dress.
I really like it better as a skirt....
However, there is a roll in the front that the chest & straps create, and a tie in the back; but I think those are manageable. A thick belt might even be a good cover up....we'll see.
Having fun gettin' crafty! What have my friends been crafting?
