I Should Not Be Allowed to Clean the Workroom....Ever....

I was happily rummaging through drawers, boxes and bin yesterday....Yup. Cleaning the workroom again...Or I should say still.

I found a black textile pen.  I don't remember when I bought it, but it still worked...

I couldn't let a good thing dry out and go to waste,could I?

I dug in my closet and found a very dull tee shirt that was in dire need of a makeover.
Let the fun begin....Forget cleaning.

Zentangling can be a fashion statement.

I started with the three leaves and the eye, that you see in the first photo and worked out from there.

In the second photo, I hid my signature and year.

Don't ask me what any of it means.  I think it just means that I was bored with cleaning and wanted an excuse to quit.

I didn't want to do the whole shirt.  I don't want to do all of that work and have it wash out if the fabric pen isn't a good one.

This is as far as I got for the sample.  Now I will wait for a day or two and then wash it in cold water, maybe delicate cycle.

If it still looks OK, I may add more.  If not, I will find a better pen and a new shirt.  This is a great way to make a tee shirt look fashionable...Or at least wearable. I sure hope that this works.

Sorry about getting sidetracked.  Back to the cottage tomorrow.

See you then...Somebody, hide the pen!  I am having way too much fun.

Amazing this is done with one pen. Love the 'Walk this Way'. This technique would make great cushions.

You are a wizard with that pen. People are going to be sending you their old shirts! :)

great job, the t-shirt looks as if it could have been found in a store like that. Really hope it won't be ruined when you wash it!
