waxed & dyed 1997; last remnants of wax removed 1998
Here's another cotton baby shirt (snap-crotch t-shirt) I dyed for my younger son, Peter. As always, just click on the pictures to see larger, more detailed versions. See How to Batik for instructions.
The cat on the front is just sitting, quietly and alertly. A sleeve has been folded over so you can see a star detail. The shirt is mostly maroon brown Procion MX dye (the discontinued Brown MX-5BR), with splashes of black or yellow here and there.
The cat on the back of the garment is carrying something in its mouth. What's it caught? You can see by his tail that the cat is very proud of his accomplishment. To see the fabric in much greater detail (it's far more beautiful when you can see the details), click on the images.
On the next page is a larger t-shirt I made for my older son, Will,
with two sharks and a ray.
