So here it is....the title is Text Speak. One of the joys of being a grandmother is that your little ones keep you up to date on the latest music, games, electronics, etc. I text with my grandson often and with others on a regular basis. Along the way I have had to learn the "language" to keep up. Now a lot of it is second nature but it seems there are still things I don't get. But thankfully I can just ask my grandson!! OK so he rolls his eyes like he can't believe I don't know that but it is all in good fun. Just so you don't miss it....There is a row of smiley faces down the upper left side and asterisks across the top (machine embroidered). I had a blast making this one.
Raw edge applique, all hand-dyed fabric background. All text and smiley faces were printed on a computer printer fabric sheet. I "painted" half of fabric sheet with some leftover dye that just happened to match very well (I love serendipity!!) so some of the texts are green and some white...just like on my text messages. I chose to use a regular binding on this one because all my text messages are "framed" by the edges of my iPhone.
