sew, (again, too good to pass up) I started out with a nice little salvation army find. $0.25 for this tan tank. there was some nice visual interest with the triangle applique. too bad it was sewn on crooked. only at salvo.
|well, I love the color, but it's a little boring.|
|the only think interesting about this is the bearded man in the background.|
so this tank needed some inspiration and I decided to rummage through my box of bolts of fabric and lace snippets. i found a nice hippie batiking fabric. (batiking is using a wax to resist the dye on fabric, usually in tribal patters, very popular in Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, India, Egypt... and the traditional colors are indigo, dark brown and white (they represent Hindu Gods)) Anyway, the fabric is very cool and I wanted to use it to spice up this tank. But there was a problem...
|I don't know why the color is gross in this picture, sorry Nikon. I have failed you.|
|no i am not cool enough to take a picture of both of my hands, these are my mom's|
|zip down the side.|
|sew nice! look at those embellishments with the old fabric.|
