Appliqued bicycle jerseys
Applique designs give exciting new appeal to second-hand bicycle jerseys. On the mint-green V-neck, the peace medallion was made of T-shirt knit fabric layered onto brocade.
The medallion originally adorned another garment that was ultimately retired. Since then, I saved it for the “right” occasion, another garment worthy of it.
The orange scoop-neck sports a bit of embroidery salvaged from a worn-out blouse. The “picture-frame” uses patterned-knit fabric from Dervish Clothing’s free fabric-scraps box at its Lithia Artisans Market booth.
For my photograph’s final touch: our beautiful cat Miss Starfire decided that an arrangement of bike helmet and appliqued jerseys was the perfect place to settle for a nap.
