cute cuff, I don't think anyone is ever too old for one  Smiley I keep meaning to make myself one for when I'm out walking and don't want to carry a purse.

Sweet art QNM!
And love the wrist pouch, I say you're never too old for that.

So I needed a serious break from stitching so I decided to take out the bottle of Inkodye I bought a few months back on a splurge and try it out!....with varying results. I loosely followed the directions from this tute off of Dharma Trading.

First I went to the copy store and got some images printed b&w on transparencies........it dawned on me literally as I was pouring the dye that I was going to end up with negative images as the prints. Doh! Oh well, next time I know I'll get that right.

A booby - for a project that I'm making for a friend.



Rings of a tree.



Bunch of scissors.



And lastly...my greatest disappointment  Undecided A shirt I tried to expose film negatives on. The negatives curled up in the sun and just didnt work out. Next time I'd make sure to have a heavy piece of glass to weigh it down with from the start. Oh well, I'll probably do some screen printing over it later, it's still a pretty color.



Now I need to get more dye! This stuff is awesome!! (Though they don't say it, but it smells like bleach - hope the smell airs out before bf gets home or else he's going to be pissed!)

Oh and I forgot, my partner in the 4x6 art swap received so here's the piece I sent to her!



Screen printed the image onto cotton fabric. Did the sharpie/alcohol trick with blue sharpie, and then watercolors with yellows. Then some machine stitching in red.  Cheesy It was a little hard to give away.

Dirty mirror shot of my shorts I made today, around our house we call these "chub rubbers" as I wear bike type shorts under my summer dressers to provent that horrible chafing us fatties can suffer  Roll Eyes

Ha! Kookaloo_Star, I hate the tell tale wear marks I sometimes get on my jeans from the Chub Rub!  Cheesy  The shorts are cute though, might have to steal this idea.


sheepBlue, I like the film shirt, I know it's not what you said you were going for but I think it looks cool, as do the other prints.

Too much to comment on, teach me to get busy and not keep up on reading!
I do like how the blue dyed/printed images came out.
I like the art people have been posting!
And the scrubbies-I'm with your niece, too pretty to use!
A Discworld TM bag sounds AWESOME.
My favorite bit on the Star Wars bag is Vader taking his walker out on a leash.
Nice shorts! I like to wear shorts under my summer skirts and dresses, too. That way no chub rubbage, and I either don't wear pantyhose, or get by with knee highs.  Shorts make it so comfortable. See, the Victorians with their long bloomers don't sound so silly now, do they?
And nice bottlecap cushion and pins!
I've been crafting for a swap, and am proud of myself for crafting from my stash. I really need to get back to my list, though...I've got a lot of projects I need to do!

Love your artwork and the Inkodye projects, sheepBlue! The scissors and tree rings are my fave.

Awesome shorts, Kookaloo_Star! Very practical for the upcoming heat. What kind of fabric did you use?
