Painting on Fabric

When my children were young I would get work where I could or work from home, mainly selling or making clothes at home for manufacturers.

I came across a company from America called Tri Chem, I went to there party plans and bought some paints.

Digital StillCamera 

I joined as a representative and organised my own parties, that is how I increased my own stock.

 I loved demonstrating techniques and the good quality product I was promoting.  I still today have my paints and still make items and paint them, still the same.

I have made for family, special occassions, school fetes, I started in 1976 and I still love them, they have changed in packaging but are still a good product

There are transfers (iron on) to use for the pictures, or you can free draw

HAPPY NEW YEAR GOOD HEALTH AND PROSPERITY 2014 – new items this year

 

crochet cotton dresses 2014 show

I started with the yoke, I had made many dresses years ago for my children and had remembered the basic stitches, I amended several times to get the size I wanted and began with the dusky pink one centre, I then decided on a basic stitch pattern for the skirt and also decided on the length toddlers seem to wear longer dresses now.  I also added buttons to the back of the dress, as this dress can also be worn back to front if desired.

I then started on the Ecru dress this I moderated a little and was pleased with the result.

I then went onto the green dress which I moderated the yoke even more and I think this one is my best design but would value any opinions you will share with me.

Hi my friends,

I hope you are all doing well, I have to wer black to winork, and plus I’ve always wanted to try this pineapple top I saw the pattern a looooong time ago so I believe 3 to 4 years, I bought a magazine with one variation of the pattern and left is aside. Now I made up my mind but did not want to follow one pattern only, so I kind of made the top with larger pineapple motif and because I thought it might become a little too loose make only chains alond the body I did some variation of stitches, therefore I did not get bored  and it did make my “belly” feel more let’s just say protected. At the bottom I did smaller sizd pineapples and because I did not count the stitches as I went along I had to make  them work in…
