I have been sadly neglecting my Blog lately, mainly due to being so busy with other things in life. I did manage to get a tee shirt made for me last week. From my fave Ottobre Design Woman, issue 1, Pattern 2. The fabric was a piece I found at the Op Shop a while back. A gorgeous mauve colour, in a cotton spandex knit.I can't remember if the fabric cost me 50 cents or $1, but still cheap either way.

The trickiest part of the tee is the bound neckline, however, we did a Sew along on this a while back on Crafty Mamas CraftyMamas ~ View topic - SEWALONG ~Kids t shirt ( easy peasy).

I think I need a few more tees, possibly stencilled also. I am also having mad thoughts of tie dying a few of the pieces of hemp fabric I have in my stash. Lots to ponder....hemp is so lovely to sew.

Nice color!!
I can clean a pintucks if I use a sewing machine and an iron in turn. It is slightly troublesome…The finish is clean when I make it carefully.
