T Shirt Transfers

it seems amazing but i've never discovered the joy of transfer prints before, well before now! i picked up this cute pack of Sukie iron on transfers in Oxfam of all places (they are selling new craft type stuff in larger stores) and decided to finally have a go. there was no stopping us! see the results below. j was alot happier than he looks - we did three of his t-shirts- boys stuff is so boring. o was happy to wear a "really boring" h&m t shirt once it was decorated and we did consider adding cute little forest animals to all of Stokie Blokes work t-shirts.

 Next up a thirfty find turned present. I found this wonderful linen tool wrap at WRAP! it was maybe for paintbrushes or who knows what but as i needed a carry case for some nice silver plate teaspoons and cake forks for Zola it did the trick brilliantly! she in turn got me vintage norwegian china - great minds!! will post pics of that soon.

 Lovely lovely pencils from WRAP. Stockmar and Koh-i-nor Hardmuth Tricolor, german and czech companies and favoured by the waldorf/steiner schooling methods. i have to say the colours are superb and the kids love them.o 's sprout drawing to show you.

J and i had a pirate day. boat, flag and anchor quickly improvised by me - based on j's idea for the empty box. he loved dressing up and the parrot enjoyed it too! avast me hearties its time to set sail. see you soon.
