I re-dyed the top and one of the skirts I had previously made of old curtains. The light blue skirt (middle in the picture) is still the same color, but the orange has been re-dyed to be brighter - OH YEAH! And the shirt (top in the picture) was re-dyed to be a raspberry pink/purple. Since the blue I originally used was a gradient dye, it still has that effect, going from a pinker purple to a bluer purple. I still have to get elastic to gather it in the back and make some straps for it, but that's a project to halfass in June.
While I was dyeing, I brightened a red onesie for the babe, then got out my fabric pens and reminded everyone that I'm not an artist. I drew some of the "I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart" album cover. Butch Walker fans don't seem to follow the rule about not wearing concert shirts of the band you're going to see, so I wanted Baby T to fit in!
The last halfass project was one I dreamed up and oversaw, while delegating most of the work to others. I've wanted a window seat in the back room since I moved in, and Will finally made it happen! The room has wood paneling that we're not ready to paint yet, but gets the most natural light of the house - go figure! It's the perfect place to read, and that room will eventually be a playroom when Baby T is big enough to have bunk beds in his room, so I like making progress on it little by little. My part in the project was buying the cushioning, the fabric to go over it, and stapling it onto the board. And, of course, trying it out once Will and his dad had installed the framework. I can't deny myself the hardest part of the project!
Attempting to become one of those crafty, have-it-all-together mommy bloggers, I also made a quick easy craft that you can do with your little ones, and will also give them
Overall, I had a pretty lazy month that I can hardly remember looking back on it. Clearly I read it all away. And slept when I was sick. I love being an antisocial hermit, but this gal's got cabin fever! Here's to June being more busy and productive!
