I worked as a teacher, so my everyday clothes were fairly dressy. But now that I'm staying at home with my son, 17 months later, I still haven't figured out what my wardrobe is supposed to be. I live on a farm in the country, so it's not like anyone but the immediate family sees me on any given day, but I still haven't figured out what I'm supposed to be wearing.
Ideally, I'd wear jeans and a t-shirt every day of my life, but all my college tees are getting a bit raggedy by now, plus they don't scream style. So I'm starting on an endeavor to make myself some kinda-cool t-shirts.
The Iron Craft challenge this week was Orange you glad, so why not a nice orange fox? After using a freezer paper stencil to do the silhouette, I added some color details. Then I made the mistake (?) of dying it with Rit dye.
I do not have good luck with Rit dye, and this is no exception. On the plus side, I got the box on sale for a dollar. However, I wouldn't exactly call that cocoa brown.
However, I'm a lot happier with my fox shirt and its patchy dye job than I thought I might be. Is there such a thing as hipster mom clothes? Maybe. . .
