Distracted by Le Tour, I've been staying up late and handstitching while sitting on the couch. But with a rest stage last night I figured it was time to catch up on some blogging.
So here's P in his birthday t-shirt!
The image came via Deviant Art and an artist: Yonaka Pinku who seems to have a thing for drawing Pokemon.
I cut a freezer paper stencil of the main colour blocks then freehand painted the black lines for the detail.
The fabric stash yielded just the right combinations of red and grey fabrics and dark grey ribbing and then I mixed my paints to match the fabrics as closely as possible while remaining "true" to the Pokemon colours.
He absolutely loves this t-shirt and it's in heavy rotation being worn again the moment it's out of the wash and back in his drawer. Pretty pleased with it myself!
