kate5kiwis: fix


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

i've been having such a KHB (Katie Hold Back) Vibe with Making Stuff since starting uni and i was nearly shrivelling up. needed a fix. woozie got this book outta the library a month or so ago and *ideas* have been shoved under the carpet ever since, but TODAY Sammy generously donated a black punk-looking teesh, Bulldog donated an "old" shirt and i put my uni stuff back in the box for half an hour.

(can you read that? my eyes are going squiffy.)

and lookit!

it totally looks as good as the one in the book.
i'd prove it if my camera would focus.
i sewed lines of white and red and black stitching
down the placket and frayed the edges.
the collar is under her hair lol.

woozie dibsed it today and i dibsed it for monday -
i fink we need some black docs to match.
and we'll definitely need to make another one pronto...
maybe i could do one assignment,
one teesh fix, etcetera...

Awesome, you girls are my heros! At the moment our lounge floor is covered in paper and patterns and fabric and threads and lots and lots of pins but nothing is actually getting made. Tim has made a run for it (he's in Hokitika) and I'm drowning. I just LOVE the new shirt!

Oh and here's another one for you Closet Control by Barbra Horowitz. She does some pretty cool things with tee shirts too.

Goodness I have missed coming over here and seeing what you have been up to. I LOVE the altered T-shirt you did. You truly have talent. My sewing machine is extremely jealous of yours right now.
