I finished this sweatshirt fabric stroller blanket top this morning. I am working on a series, officially now, so I am going post them as they come. It may take some time, since sweatshirts are out of season and all my fabric sources have dried up for the time being. I was smart this summer and bought a load of t-shirts to work with for the winter. I will be smart this winter and buy a load of sweatshirts to work with off season. I'm headed for bulk buying soon. 500 lbs. of sweatshirts in my studio? Sign me up.
Meaningless but pretty color composition shot:
Now, you've been wondering about that fraying in the seams on the sweatshirt quilts I made for the babies. I've gotten many e-mails about it. Not really, but writing that made me laugh out loud and I take my kicks where I can get them. But, if you were wondering, I am trying out a seam reinforcement to try and prevent this problem. This is called Stay-Tape (creative play on words, isn't it?) I'm hoping it will solve the problem, but I will resent the added 3 bones per blanket it will cost me to put it in.
So last, but not least, for all you lovers out there...Super Sexy Stitch Time:
