I made these for the most recent round of the Hippie Swap.

It's reconstructed because I started with a plain white t-shirt that I dyed LWI-style with teal RIT powder dye. I cut the petals out from a cardstock template and sewed them together with black thread on my sewing machine. I used the stitching to kind of draw in the petal details.

I think I want to make a set to look like leaves next. Maybe in fall colors?

Thanks for looking!

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

I love these! Totally petal-like. and I can see the technique transitioning nicely to leaves. It really reminds me of this awesome artist http://dogdaisychains.blogspot.com/. She machine sews, embroiders, etc on felt and velvet, but the style is kind of similar. Great job!!

Oh my gosh, sheepBlue, I cannot get over that link! What an incredible artist!!  It looks like she works mostly on felt? I just can't stop looking! I'd love to do more with this style. Thanks so much for the inspiration and the kind words! Smiley

Yeah I know! I drool over all her awesome brooches. I have dreams of trying something similar myself eventually but it would take a long time to get to the level that she's at  Smiley I'm glad you can use her as a source of inspiration as I have  Grin

And I must say, looking at the petals again, I'm loving the raw edge of the tshirt! I'm not sure why that part is captivating me but I love it!

I liked the way the raw ends kind of curl in different directions. Very fairy-esque. Thanks again!! Praise from you sure means a lot! Smiley

And thanks dulcet and weebeasties! I hope to make some more stuff in this style soon!
