As the warmer weather approaches, then leaves again, and comes back for a day, only to be scared away by torrential rain, I find myself pulling out shorter sleeved shirts from my closet.
Like this dark blue one, with half length sleeves, perfect for not quite so warm days, but sunny days nonetheless. The only problem with it - it was kind of plain.
So I stenciled it, using a lace paper doily.
A couple of dabs of white fabric paint and a few smudges later I had this:
Also, i finally finished the crochet bag I started ages ago. This was mostly improvised, I started with a pattern, then I messed up, and gave up on the pattern, slip stitched the bottom shut and added the flap for closure.
I'll probably need to line it, because it stretches like crazy.
And here's a blurry shot of me wearing it. The strap is long enough for the bag to go across my chest. The bag itself is 18 cm wide and 24 cm long (yes, it stretched way too much under the weight of my wallet and cellphone - in retrospective, I should have seen it coming.).
