Hmmm...well. LOL. So I made these tea towels for my mom for Xmas. Had 'em finished in October or something, just oh so lazy when it comes to busting out the camera. Came here today and saw nikschaf had placed her own awesome version up. : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=331679.0 I dig 'em a lot. Too funny.
Anywho..my towels....I found these towels in a dollar store type place, 100% cotton, no pattern, 2/ $ 1.00....YESs !! Bought a boat load. Wasn't too keen on a couple of colours.....green and a brick colour...was fine with the khaki one. Said to self..eh...I'll bleach the colour out.....I ended up with a load of Band-aid pink towels...no word of a lie all of them were band-aid-friggin-pink! Eeep. So another trip out to get some colour remover ( never use Tintex it doesn't work, use Rit) and Viola I had a load of yellowy(ish) towels. YAY!!
So on with the pics of the almost doomed towels.
Oddly the flash warmed the colors instead of washing them out
Patterns were originally from the flickr Hoop love group. I think they're not there now. Might be Vogue patterns.
hmmm should be lines in the next Daft Punk song
I used a blend of colours on these two:
Awww, I love their little faces.
It was the first time I used the Clover transfer pencil, and I must say I was very impressed. Easy to use, didn't break every third stroke, and it seems to have washed out fairly well too.
I wish I could say which stitches I used on these, but I honestly don't remember.
Thanks for looking! Questions, comments....etc. are wlecomed.
