My Ceramic Markers Arrived!
I'm super pleased with the result- they are easy to use and make a nice line. It's drying now, so I don't know if it's going to be dishwasher-safe like it says it will... but I'll let you know. It's been crazy rainy this week, leading to all kinds of indoor projects. There will probably be MANY more tests yet this week.
I'm imagining entire tea parties sipping from these sweet little Nordic-looking teacups. They will all be different, but somehow all belong together and we will look like something out of one of those expensive European ambiguous lifestyle magazines.
It's a lovely dream.
You may notice that this teacup coordinates perfectly with that out of focus blob in the background. That is my treasured Marimekko throw pillow and yes, it is one of the reasons I like to design with red and blue.
This lovely little paisley number was at one time the sleeves to a large women's turtleneck. The bottom of the body got turned into a miniskirt for me (no I am not such an embarrassing mom that I made us match), the top got turned into bibs, and the sleeves are now pants for my too-cool-for-school babe.
This was the third pair of pants I've made for him and it's gotten easier each time. These looked just perfect. I think I'm finally ready to write that tutorial now...
