If you have noticed, my boys only wear white sando as their pambahay..it has been that way ever since. And we only buy one kind of sando (Loving Couple sando)..when Sati arrived, most of her clothes were printed house dress or house blouse. Recently, she’s developing a certain likeness to Chico’s sando and insist on wearing it from time to time.. it must be the cooling effect of cotton sando.. but oh boy! she looks like a boy wearing a boy sando!
It’s so hard to say no to this girl.. so I take out my creativity once again, bought a few boy sando, dyed it and sew to make a razor girl sando.. teehee
That’s the finished product.. 10 new sando fro my little girl! to make it a bit more girly, here’s what I did:
I sewed a garter on each side of the sando (leaving at least one inch from top and from the bottom) then sewed the back to give the a more defined razor back effect, and here it is:
Tie dying is one of my favorite thing to do.. when I was in high school, I used to tie dye my old shirt, but I only knew one design, the simplest tie dye design.. circle tie dye. When I had my first born, I learned how to make spiral design with 3 colors and tie dyed some of their clothes with spiral design in red, green and yellow! (reggae yeah!)
Here’s how to to create a spiral design for tie dye:
- Take the center of the clothes and start twisting it to form a circle
- Tie the clothe and make sure it is tight.
- Divide the clothes into 3, then pour dye in each part.
- Do it on the other side then rinse with water.
For this project, I used blue, green and red.. not a good color combination haha
For Sati’s play clothes, I had to look for other designs and so far, the easiest was the heart design:
Here’s how to tie dye with a heart design:
- Using a white shirt, flat it out then take the center of the front of the shirt.
- Fold the center then draw a half heart, mark it heavily
- Fold the heart design and make sure that your marking forms a straight line when folded.
- Tie the folded shirt, to the part where the markings are
- to make a two tone tie dyed shirt, dip the smaller area to the desired color, as it is with the photo above, the heart design submerged into red dye. After that, dip the bigger part to the other color. You can also use one color for this design (like the violet sando above)
Here’s the finished product:
MY little girl love her new sets of play clothes so much!
