Silk Screening today...

I am being very adventurous and decided to make six t-shirts to include all of my grandchildren. I did have some knit fabric that needed to be used up. This is the boy version.
These are for the two girls.
Silk screening sure is fun. On the light shirt I put some pink set-a-color with water in a spray bottle and sprayed it on the shirt to add a little color here and there.

Good News

I put this picture on before I entered it in the California State Fair. It won honorable mention with the Meissner Sewing and Learning Center Award. Can't say I know what that is.

I was able to attend a one day workshop with Doshi with my wearable art group in LA. She gave us so many ideas that I want to just try them all. She was very good and inspiring. This was a small scarf that I pole wrapped and then put into a acid dye bath.
This was a sample of silk noil doing some of the sewing techniques she taught and then used acid dye as well.

The next step

I can't believe I left my camera at my sons when I was on a visit. Unable to blog with pictures was the consequence. I am happy I am back into pictures. This the next step in my jacket that I am working on. I sewed the stripes on the muslin base and then free motion quilted. I have begun to add some detail embellishments with covered cord and metal decorations.
