the coral branch pattern

As I mentioned before here, here and here, coral is one of the thing I'm obsessed about. A LOT.

Last year, after being done with my powder room redo, I put away the pattern of the towel and didn't think much of it for a while.
But with summer approaching (eventually it will arrive...) I thought to give the coral pattern another try... where, if not on a t-shirt, in my case?

What I did it's really simple: 
- got a cheap t-shirt
- pinned the pattern onto a sheer aqua piece of silk
- trace it and cut it
- fray checked  some parts only (I like some fraying)
- sew it the middle of the branches onto my shirt (Hanes, you can see, eheheh!) and put some blue crystals here and there
Since I've got some emails requesting the coral pattern of my towels: here it is in a PDF file ready to download (4 pages, from 1 to 4 clockwise).
It's your lucky day...two ideas for the price of one post!  :)
