This is a little t-shirt I whipped up for Ulysses. I actually made three of them and he looks super cute in them. I was inspired by someone I found on Flickr randomly, Janssen Designs. I love how recycled/vintage/unique they are. Each one is a personality of its own. I used Japanese fabrics on the sleeves, but the t-shirts are indeed recycled, mostly from Value Village but I got approval from Ryan to cut up some of his, so new ones are on the horizon. I”ll take pics of the others one of these days.
My sweet mom hosted a lovely birthday party for me last week that was one of the best times I”ve had for a while, and then my sweet hubby took me and the babe to Leavenworth for a long weekend. My mom so very kindly offered to come with us for part of the time to watch the babe, so we floated down the the river in the hot summer sun (with the icicle river –literally, that”s its name!) to keep us the perfect temperature and had a lovely dinner outside following. We didn”t have one decent meal out in that town. Someone needs to get Zagat up in that joint to do a tastebud check. But, really, it was a wonderful birthday. And, I got a serger! I just got it set up tonight and am feeling pretty pleased with myself about threading it. I am hoping to use it on more Uly shirts.
