means "ring around the rosie" in italian.
It is also the name of an Alessi's collection.
yes, this tee refashion was inspired by... a tray.
|Alessi round tray|
This is not the first time that I took inspiration from some kind of design originally intended for the home and translated into something to wear.
...and this is a great way to cover up several random blueberry (and raspberry too) spots on your t-shirt!
Get your patience ready, and cut out this guy's shape out of an old even more messed out shirt about... 25 times. (mine is about 2-1/2" high and 1-3/4" wide)
Place the first ones on the spots and work around in circle, like they are holding hands.
... and stitch with a contrasting thread.
Easy, peasy (but very boring indeed)
Just for fun, I left some of the "legs", "arms" and "heads" hanging passed by the hem of the shirt... just because.
I hand stitched all these little guys, but it can be done with a sewing machine, of course. But I do get
anal OCD and like the hand stitch detail a lot better. Shame on me!!
