Things are slowing down here, that’s for sure, but I’m working on a few projects right now, in between trying to get some Mei Tais sewn up for Wallypop.

I’m trying out batik - I’ll write more about that in a few days when I have more finished projects to show you, but in the meantime, here’s a teaser:

In Progress batik

I will be dying the top part black early next week. We’ll see how that works out.

Tub dyeing

I’m also trying out tub dying, which is not as easy as you might think. Well, it actually is not that hard. I just have this problem where I get up to grab a drink of water, and end up doing 10 other things, and forgetting I’m supposed to be in there stirring the stuff.

Wally's Pumpkin shirt

And, finally, Wally really wanted me to make him a pumpkin shirt, and he wanted to help. He helped me dye it orange (he stirred a bit) and then he helped me draw the face and paint it on. (Freezer paper stencil.)
