I am really happy to save the shirt fabrics. There are also some buttons piling up since it is difficult to discard perfectly good buttons. (have you priced buttons lately???)
Saturday night, I pulled out a piece of the hand dyed fabric and almost said "I can't cut into this!" I mean really. Just look at this piece- it is two pictures but it was one long piece of fabric.
But I was courageous and started cutting. Then I started piecing it with the shirt pieces. Rather than just a blue pinpoint oxford, I decided to use a very pale yellow with a pattern that is barely there.
Wow! It made me so happy to mix up the background pieces. You know that I can't follow any muse but my own. The total solid background on this just wasn't going to work for me. Ha ha. Not to mention that I had a limited amount of the blue. I think it really kicked it up a bit
What do you think? And don't you love the hand dyed "fire" fabric. I have no idea what Vicki calls that particular coloring but it has a great "wow" factor in person. *edit note: Vicki says that this is the Sundance Gradient.
Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated.
