The Spring Tank
So this is my first attempt at embellishing clothes - one with crocheted lace doilies and the other with slightly irregular yo-yos (made from an assortment of cotton); I call them Spring Tank Tops, as opposed to regular ones, because they are bright and unexpected.
I have a few more ideas for embellishing tops I want to try out; involving ruffles and embroidery, but finding time is a wee bit of an issue at the moment. And don't even get me started on how much I really REALLY love making those yo-yos! They are seriously addictive; once you make a few you want to make hundreds and THOUSANDS and cover every surface imaginable; pillows, bags, lounges, HOUSES! I'm sticking to the singlets and pillows for now, but cars and hot air balloons beware...
