That's so cool! I've seen abandoned art before, but I had no idea there was a FB group either, so thanks for that. Smiley

56  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / MY first tea dye! (sorta picture heavy) on: September 24, 2012 06:19:58 AM
OK, so technically second, but first I'd wear. I didn't read up, and it turns out pit stains soak up the tea dye about 50 million times better than the rest of the shirt.  Embarrassed Epic fail, prep with bleach.

I've had this shirt for ages, and I love it because it drapes so nicely and the fringe in the back makes it sorta sexy without being too much. But it went from white to a dingy gray, got some stains, couple of holes... I didn't want to throw it out though, so here's my attempt at salvaging it. I did two dyes, one quick soak that brought it to a light beige to even things out and then a spiral tie-dye with really strong tea for some texture. I tried to make a little flower with henna at the bottom as well, I got a packet ages ago that I'll never use for anything else. That was kind of a fail, my paste was too runny so it got blurred. Overall though, I'm pretty happy with it. I wasn't expecting the fringe to take any dye at all, but it's got a lovely golden tint to it now.

Here's the finished thing:

And the back:

And here's what it looks like on. Taking a picture of your own back with a crappy cell phone is way too hard.

57  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: What can you do to a room you can't do anything to? on: September 24, 2012 05:44:11 AM
Glad you found a more customisable place to live. It's hard not to redecorate once you start crafting.  Wink

I saw this interior decorating show a while ago. It's in Swedish unfortunately, but they were dealing with a similar problem. They solved it by simply building a false wall in front of the real ones! It looked beautiful, completely part of the room. There was a skylight in the place as well, really tall and white walls, so they stuck some coloured plastic onto the skylight and a couple of windows to reflect on the walls like movable wall art. I think they also made a standalone bookcase to fit into one of the walls.

Last time I lived in an apartment wit ha roommate we weren't even allowed to use tacks on the walls (I know, right? Roll Eyes). Our solution was a sort of chicken-wire frame on one of the walls for our pictures and things. Plus bed frames, giant bookcase, all that.

Oh that is lovely, such an intricate piece of work! I haven't seen that bead tool before ever, so thank you. I'm having a blast checking it out.

Ahaha, my momma cat just sniffed disapprovingly at the screen. She might actually slit my throat if I tried to get that on her. Great job though, I love the pointiness of it.
