i looove hoodies but just try to find one in a cute girlie color - no luck
soooo, enter one of my favorite things -
now i've used rit in my washing machine before, followed the directions on the back, and never had any problems what-so-ever
buuut, we're renting from one of james professors and sharing a machine with 5 other people, so we decided to play it safe
the directions say to stir continually for 30-60 minutes - ugh - but when it's snowing, all we've got is time
so i got a plastic trash can, and yard stick to stir, and some hot water from the stove
a diet coke, some turkey pepperoni's, the heater, and a computer to catch up on castle :)
stirring, stirring, (blurry but the camera died soon after)
after stirring, i rinsed it out in the sink (no problems with it staining our white sink) and washed and dried. now i think it turns out better dying in the washing machine - the color is more saturated and there aren't any blotchy places, but it'll work to run errands for sure.
and while we're fancying up a hoodie, why not add a couple rolled flowers
this little project has been in my sewing stuff since last year and now that i got a serger - woohoo!!! - there's no reason to avoid sewing knits
i got some weird little stains on the bottom of this shirt last winter but couldn't stand to throw it out so i cut the bottom off
sewed a tube out of some jersey
and serged them together
(oooh how i hate to take pictures of myself but this looked terrible hanging up, i tried every angle i could, oh well)
i added a little sash to cover up the seems and waaala!
