I am so not getting sick of the swirls

...though the sickly lemon-y smell of the shaving cream does my head in a little.

The pink on the left is the first "print" and then I recycle the foam and reuse as the base for some more swirls. The swirls aren't as clear but then again, I did not leave these ready-made tees on the dye for as long as I normally do.

After seeing me swirl dye some singlets for Scott (which worked okay by the way), Jalisa requested some of her own. Now, all of her singlets have been dyed on a previous occassion so I thought I could dye up some plain cotton knit and make them into singlets for her.
Pattern is Ottobre 4/04, number 33. Very straightforward, easy pattern but there is a printing error in my copy. The pattern said to trace green patterns on sheet E, but it is actually sheet F.


  1. wow Marie, they look fantastic! Very unique fabric indeed.

  2. I don't think you could ever get sick of these swirls, they are just gorgeous!
