Peppermint swirl tee

Well, here is my favourite tee pattern (curved raglan, Ottobre 2/05) made up with some green swirl dyed jersey. I whipped it up in between cooking dinner (you know, chuck some meat into defrost, sew, cut up vegies, sew...) I will have to see if I can find the link for these cloth liners. I just used 4 layers of flannelette that I had swirl dyed. My stitching is embarrassingly crooked, but I am really happy with them being my first time and all. The colours look a little bit off - lefty is a turquoise blue and righty is deep purple with a hint of pink.

Friday Dye day - more swirls

Dyeing is addictive. Need I say more. Above is some flannelette.
These started off as beige jersey (yes, desperate for a fix that I am using beige instead of white...I have metres and metres of the stuff). They will end as tees for the kids.

The above is a piece I did last week. This is my favourite that I have done so far - rainbow colours on mauve. You will have to check back later (much later) to see the final product (it is destined to be a show entry)
