self portrait: tuesday

for lack of anything else, a photo booth shot.

i made the applique on the t-shirt. it was a birthday present for dan. tristan was a month old and i had no money. it is really hard to come up with handmade things for men, especially when you are not really much of a knitter. so i found some little bird and star templates online, pulled out some vintage fabric and constructed the whole thing with tristan in the sling. it's been almost six months and dan has worn it once. so i reclaimed it, because really, i think it's rather charming, especially infused with the memory of a newborn in a sling while sitting at the sewing machine.
