Chickie Fabric Fun
When I saw this fabric at the fabric store, I knew I had to have it and I knew it would make a great pair of overalls. It's actually more dark red than orange. My camera had a hard time picking up the color properly. I'm also quite proud of the mock turtleneck I made. I hate using knit fabrics but FINALLY I seem to have gotten the hang of it, and so I present a non-bunched, decent-looking shirt! Simple, sure, but it does the trick.
I love this photo. Tompkin looks like a little kid from yesteryear, playing with his train. I used the sepia and soften filters on Paint.net to change my original photograph. Paint.net is a great program and it's FREE.
