OMG! I LOVE THESE! I want to make a pair right now! What kind of paint did you use? What about the glitter? Was it spray glitter? Or how did you get it so evenly coated?
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / wholesale quality artificial flowers...looking for a source, suggestions? on: March 08, 2011 02:49:14 PM
Hi, everybody. I make acessories, hair stuff and necklaces mostly, with artificial flowers, and I am going broke buying them from Hobby Lobby! The ones at the dollar stores look cheap and crappy. I am afraid to buy online without seeing a sample first or having a referral from someone I trust. Anyone have any leads for me? I would so appreciate it. Thanks so much!

I think the diff. shades just came from how much bleach soaked into each spot. You know, you bunch the shirt up in several places and put really tight rubber bands around each part. The darkest purple was the original color of the shirt, and none of the bleach water got in there because the rubber bands kept it out. It's just random and has to do with luck, I think! I just filled the sink with some bleach water and submerged the whole shirt. I had to leave it in there for awhile before anything happened. I didn't think it was going to work at first. I tried this on a red shirt and absolutely nothing happened. So I think it depends on the kind of dye used on the shirt when it was first made. Just experiment, it's fun, even if it turns out bad!

I did get the idea from Generation T! I love that book. Did you know there is a second one out now? Can't remember the name....something like "Beyond Fashion." It's great too.

Thanks for all the ideas and comments!

I love this one! I'm a little concerned about how it will do in the washer with all the safety pins, though. Any thoughts?

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / tube top or skirt on: August 06, 2009 05:50:38 PM
Do you think this looks better as a tube top or skirt? I intended for it to be a skirt, but I think it looks better as a tube top. Might be awkward to get your hands in the pocket that way....?

I love the image on this one! I have no idea what it is. A band, a book? Anyone know? Anyway, let me know what you think about it!

This used to be a plain purple shirt with some insurance company logo. I tie-dyed it with bleach (it was my first time and I can't believe how amazing it turned out!) and sewed a heart applique over the logo. I love it! It's too small for me though.

I was thinking about altering it some more. Cutting off the sleeves and maybe adding some purple ribbon. I don't want to mess it up though. What do you think?

I love it, it's perfect!

The shirt can really be any size, because you can make the fabric panels as big as you want! You can just cut out the image you want from any shirt....
