What was your inspiration?
My 15 year old daughter loves printed shirts, the weirder the better. I made this scoop neck tee, then dyed it using Meg's method (bonus lesson). Next I let my daughter choose an image from Madame Bricolage on etsy. I printed it from the printer onto TAP transfer paper and just ironed it on. I'm pretty sure no one else will have this shirt at school!
What are you most proud of?
I tried something new. My coverstitch machine was acting up so I used the jersey stitch (on my new Bernina 530) for the hems and neckline. I like the look and it is nice and stretchy. It is a good alternative for coverstitch or zig zag.
