Creation: Stencilled & Dyed Shirt
Fabrics Used: Cotton Jersey
The Visionary: Justine, Sew Country Chick
Our Thoughts: Justine at Sew Country Chick experimented with our Cotton Jersey. What a funky look!
I had some leftover organic cotton from Organic Cotton Plus, and wanted to create something inspired by my Alabama Stitch book. I was a little lazy and wanted to make something quick and not do all the hand sewing. So I used a stencil bought on sale at Micheal’s for four dollars and some fabric paint. I dyed the natural colored cotton blue, then used navy blue fabric paint to stencil the design. I sewed the seams with the raw edges facing outward and then used the zig zag stitch to sew them down. I added a knit band to the neckline and used the zig zag stitch for decor on it. Then left the hems raw. I did lower the neckline about three inches, since I spilled some ink on the top and wanted to get rid of that part!
