My Picasso Shirt

My DIY Save the Dates
Dye! Dye! My Darling!

I woke up at 5:30 this morning feeling ridonkulously (and most uncharacteristically) energized!  I tied on my trainers and ran two miles (I think something might be wrong with me).  Still feeling all sorts of jazzed, I decided to make a boring shirt I scored at a clothing swap a bit more interesting.

Hi. I'm your average Tshirt. *Yawn*

First, I grabbed some chalk and drew a sort of Picasso-esque little line drawing on the shirt.

I am obviously going through my green period.

Then, I ran it through my machine, tracing the chalk outline…first with fuscia thread using a straight stitch, then with white thread using a zigzag stitch.

I stitch the line.

I dug through my huge tin ‘o buttons and pulled out this guy.

So many buttons!

I hand-stitched the button onto the shirt for my guy’s eye.  I think it’s pretty nifty!
