I’m not gonna lie, this shirt largely came into being because I had some silver ink lying around that I hadn’t tried yet and needed a suitable design to use it for. It all started with a silly looking shark, and then somehow bowties and tea cups got involved. Oh! And look who else is there. It’s the sad seven-armed octopus.

All of the fabrics used for the prints are vintage or reclaimed fabrics that are sourced from a magical fabric sale that happens once a year in Calgary organized by the charity Ujamaa Grandmas. Donated fabric fills the basement of a church, with most fabrics going for $1/metre, and all proceeds going to the charity. It's honestly one of my favourite days of the year and has lead to me having a large and cherished collection of amazing fabrics. Because they are purchased second hand, I cannot be sure of the fabric contents.
