Here is the last BWOF 09-2008-143 for the moment, now that there is one to wear, one for the wash, and one for spare in the right size.
The print is allegedly a quilting cotton but is tightly woven, has a very slight sheen, and is a little more thin than your regular quilting print. It is cotton, no poly. I think it is more like a nice shirting cotton. I don't suppose that fabric printed with lots of rocks (or my husband says potatoes) sells as shirting fabric very often though.
The contrast print is regular quilting cotton. I used this print for the tabs, which are inspired by Carolyn's shirt posts. (She is not to blame for the print, I meant the tabs) I was finding the unadulterated boy shirt a little dull, even with such interesting fabric.
I had the day off work yesterday, in order to spend quality time with my younger children, and managed to convince them that playing with fabric would be fun. Much more fun than making another shirt
They took to it with considerable enthusiasm, and mixed results.
I wasn't thrilled with my fabric painting/stamping/stencilling. I think I should stick to sewing when I play with fabric!
I have a few t-shirts to make now, with crafty insertions.
