Day 11

I can't believe I am still doing this photo challenge for July!  I am skipping Day 10:  My Style.  I don't really know what I want to photograph for that.  It can't be clothes... I am a sloppy dresser.  Jeans and t-shirts accessorized with breakfast or lunch.  So let's just imagine that and skip ahead to today.

July 11:  Homemade Art  




We are lucky enough to have met some really awesome kids and their fantastic moms through preschool and we tend to see each other quite often during the summer.  Our fearless leader Nicole always plans a day for us to do tie dye t-shirts.  I prepared our shirts ahead of time by wetting them and bundling them up.  I used zip ties instead of rubber bands because the bands kept breaking.  Perfect use for them but a few of them cut through the plastic bags I had the shirts stored in and dyed my fabric tote bag.  Oh well.  I let the girls do all their own coloring and look at the focus in this picture!  They are serious about color use and placement.  I was extremely impressed with Lilly... my messy kid.  The one who flies through everything just to get it done.  Not with this.  She took her time.  This was a great day and I can't wait to see how the shirts turn out.  I plan on sewing dresses out of them again this year.  Love it!!
