I found out about a new website called Spoonflower.com through the Mamma Made blog (a great read for sewing enthusiasts,) in which you can print your own designs on fabric. I’ve been pondering for about two weeks what to make. Sometimes having so much creative opportunity can be overwhelming! Today at dinner, I had the perfect idea. Many years ago I made my husband sit down and paint pictures with me one night (NOT his cup of tea), and he painted the cutest little picture of a bunch of Chinese men with those little pointy hats riding bikes through a village. It’s all one dimensional, kind of like a little kid would paint. I LOVE it and he HATES it, and through the years, I always bring it up and threaten to do different things to display it (i.e., making t-shirts out of it) and he always gets so mad! So I had this great idea tonight: I will have it put on fabric and make a garment out of it! It is like the ultimate idea! So I went up to my attic to find it and oh no! Alas, I can’t find it! So, sadly, I quit looking and decided to just make some kind of design. So here it is. It’s no Chinese village, but it will have to do.
Beautiful Mary! You’ve got to make more fabrics! Wish you found the art your husband had made. That would’ve been brilliant!
Thanks, it is really fun, isn’t it? I think I will make more!
