Alabama Studio Style: Ocean Circle-Spiral Appliques


Starting a new Alabama Chanin dress on genuine Alabama Chanin jersey in Turquoise. The thrift store yielded four tee shirts in toning aquas and pale blues.


I'm layering on the circle-spiral appliques generally from the hem up, dark to light, in a vague ombre reference. It's fun.

Very pretty. I'd not really seen the appeal until someone gifted me a big bag of knit scraps! Now I'm paying attention.

I LOVE this, Anna. My favorite color and what a cool idea.

This is so gorgeous! Out of curiousity... Have you ever kept track of how long it takes you to make one of these masterpieces?

these Alabama Chanin pieces are gorgeous -- I'm wondering how laundering them works -- does the detail work keep its size and shape?

Happy Thanksgiving!

My guess is, that however long it takes Anna, it would take the rest of us a little longer. :O

Susan, yes, they hold up very well in the laundry. In my house they are all worn by spill-prone young women, and me, a messy person.

Not sure how long it takes to make one--the applique actually goes really fast. Much faster than a knitting project, for instance.'

p.s.
my word verification is 'artsword'. appropriate, I thought ;-)
