Workshop Notes
A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow

I needed some instant gratification. To start something and finish it.

Inspired by the poppies I see these days in a train station on my way to work.
Hand painted poppies over light green t-shirt. It is a 6-7 year old t-shirt, I'll put it on Etsy soon. I have some other t-shirts to paint.

I hurted my hips again while sanding the table yesterday, so Pim is gonna have to finish the sanding...
And I just burned my wrist with boiling water while cooking. Oh joy.

Thank you :)

The burn is very superficial, fortunately, I have it wrapped up and smeared with lavender oil, no blisters, so its all good :) thanks!

Yeah, I've painted t-shirts before and I wash them in the washing machine. I don't mind much if they fade a bit because I can re-paint them, but when I sell them I'll recommend to hand wash them, and max 40°. They can be ironed from the back.

The paint is regular fabric paint, I bought in at De Banier. It has to be ironed from the back (or with a cloth on top) for 4 minutes to fix the paint. I didn't iron one t-shirt properly once and a corner faded in the wash.

Thanks :)
