Kids Clothes Week starts Monday. Theme: kid art. Who’s signed up? Who has a plan? I sure don’t!
Okay, I lied. I have the start of a plan. I have this fabric to work with.
The girls “made” it. Souricette 1 did 50% of the work (putting in elastics and marbles) and souricette 2 directed my work for about 30% of the time. I did all the dyeing. Still, these are their panels of shibori and I’ll be using them this week.
And that’s all I have.
No, I lied again. I have a vague idea of what the girls need. Skorts, skirts, and tees for souricette 2. Leggings, dresses, and tees for souricette 1. Nothing more precise.
But not a whole lot of fabric to coordinate with that shibori. It just so happened that my LYS (local yarn store, Etui, lovely, lovely shop) is getting rid of the fabric section. All fabric 40% off. This is what found its way home.
Did you see anything that could coordinate with the shibori? Here, look again.
No, me neither. Sure, the black and white prints would work. Mayyyyybe that maroon Kona. No way those bright Konas are going to work. Not the Kaffe Fassett stripes either. I guess the girls could rock the shibori-rainbow stripes combo… (In case you’re wondering, yes, I did bring the shibori to the store. And yes, I did know that orange wasn’t going to work. It just felt like a smart addition to a stash that skews very blue…)
This is going to require some more thought… And I only have two days to figure it out and prepare! Wish me luck.
