My Batik Tee with Seattle's Fremont Troll

This tee showcases my first joyful try at stenciling and embellishing thanks to the encouragement of Diane Ericson at the Puyallup WA Sewing & Stitchery Expo one year! I purchased the cotton knit batik fabric from CNT Patterns, decided on Katherine Tilton's Vogue 8817, but didn't have quite enough fabric. So, I had fun twisting and turning the "stripe" so that I could make the tee with short sleeves. It's definitely one of my favorites and the design of Katherine's pattern created a great canvas for stenciling, hand stitching and beading. I wear this often and will definitely make more. And yes, that is Seattle's famous Fremont Troll peeking over my shoulder in the first picture!
