Happy Halloween from the spectral Smallers. Hope your fright night is one for the ages.

Good grief. It’s been ten whole months since I took the plunge into No New Threads. October being my birthday month, I did receive a few thready gifts, including a set of orange stretchy gloves and an outsized purple satin clutch (thanks, Mom).
In addition, I snagged a pinstriped tissue tee at the thrift shop. Why? I’m so glad you asked!
I grabbed said shirt because The Man of Small gave me a screenprinting kit for my b-day! Still haven’t decided what to screen (I’ve been doodling without restraint), but I’ll hit on something. I’m just sure of it.
Get in on The Year of No New Threads!

Bringing a bottle of wine to a fall gathering? Looking for a lovely way to display it?

And, for other felteds, some Heart Felt links from me to you.

Holy silkscreens, Batman! A flurry of line drawing- and vintage photo-inspired prints on tees, tanks, totes — you name it! This is Deadworry, the Etsy shop with a love for intricate images screened onto cotton. Here’s a pictoral sampler, and a hint at a special deal on totes:
Do you dig?
