you need to print out what you want it to say, cut the letters out, position and tape in place.
then comes the part where I'm sure I annoyed the neighbors... start hammering your nails around the edges of the letters, making sure they stick out a bit. this was the longest part of the project for me. finally, you can start wrapping your thread in fun designs or simply around the outlines.
a sunny fall afternoon at Dream Collective in LA | creations hanging out to dry | Brian showing off a piece of vintage fabric Missi decided to dye ... it looked so cool!
Missi and Brian and their indigo baby | the green part is the indigo oxidizing right before our eyes! (did you know that indigo is actually a green color? when it hits oxygen it starts to turn that deep blue color. mind. blown :)
it's hard for me to edit photos of this day because all the dyeing was so cool looking -- and I also want to introduce our teacher, Niki Livingston from Lookout & Wonderland (she was great) --- so, more tomorrow!
