Hey! Guess what...you can use high quality watercolor to paint on fabric! This is after its final rinse, see? No more color in the water. Bright vivid colors on the fabric! I wouldn't use this technique on fabrics that were going to be washed and dried a ton..or maybe I would, but I'm sure it would fade then.
I give in. I have made more than I need to keep around for my personal project. I'm going to be working on getting these dressed and ready for sale. Lots of hand sewing and knitting happening today, they'll be in the shop sometime this week. They are not intended for children's play.
Sigh. Tears and sweat went into my first quilt...now very literally blood too. This is hanging up in public, what am I going to do?!! Damn needles! (And thank you for the sweet words and birthday wishes!)
Spending my 32nd at my parents house looking after grandpa while they're gone, hand quilting, and watching Tales From the Green Valley on YouTube. It's pretty perfect. My mom left me cookies and presents too..made my morning!
