A couple months ago I purchased some adorable fabric from So Cheeky.
|such a fun print|
It's so lush and soft. I knew I wanted to make myself a shirt out of it. Since I've made myself a couple bubble shirts recently I decided to do the same with this fabric. This style of top is perfect for the hot Memphis summers (and to cover up my inability to lose the baby weight).

I love the feel and fit of the top. But with a toddler and a baby I didn't think that much white would work for me. So I turned to my newest crafting obsession, ice dyeing. If you don't know about ice dyeing it's simple and fun. I find it less messy than tie dyeing. It also takes up a lot less space while you are doing it.
I'd normally leave the colors to set a bit longer but I decided I wanted the colors to be slightly more subdued than jewel toned so I rinsed it earlier than the 24 hours and did a hot wash with Synthrapol.
Garrett decided he wanted to show off the t-shirt I made him yesterday.
Here is a better shot of how the colors came out.
