Aunt Eeck Sweatshirts--Doesn't everybody have an eccentric Aunt? I always though I was supposed to, but couldn't figure out which one she was. Maybe it was MY destiny to grow up to be an eccentric Aunt! Never boring or stuffy. Am I the one? You'll have to ask my nephews.
A dark navy blue sweatshirt.
Exact size:Jerzeez 2XL(50-52) When it is layed out flat, it measures 27 inches armpit seam to armpit seam, 26 1/2 inches from the nape of the neck to the bottom of the hem, and 68 inches from sleeve cuff to sleeve cuff.
PRIMITIVE SWEATSHIRTS are a blast to make and I like wearing them myself. They last for years in my rough throw it in the truck, throw it in the tack box, throw it on the floor, throw it in the washer and dryer lifestyle.
Primitive Folk Art is a style that looks old and long stored and quickly made with the materials at hand. Often, it’s not, really.
All mine start with a brand new never worn sweatshirt. Sometimes I irregularly discharge the dye to make them look faded. Sometimes I hand dye them. The Gildan Heavyweight sweatshirts take the brilliant procion colors so well that I can’t resist taking advantage and dying them bright colors.
I use a lot of hand stitching in big prim style stitches, but it’s decorative only. Everything is sewn on securely by machine. You can see that in the photo if the inside front.
The collage is made from new, up cycled, and hand dyed stuff. It’s mostly raw edge appliqué to get that good prim raveled look. It may need a bit of a haircut after a few washings. Just clip loose threads about a half inch or 1 cm from the shirt. Don’t pull a thread. My grandmother taught me: “Never pull a thread.”
All of my textile art comes from a smoke free home with cat patrol.
