On safari

And a turtle on their rear end because I can.  At this age they think it is fun that people notice their backside.  As long as they are getting happy attention.

Infants are fun to make outfits for.  At that age they'll wear whatever you put on them.  So you can have some fun with their clothes.  Although I didn't mix polka dots and plaid, I did put a caboose on the back.  Because isn't that where a caboose is?
And since crawlers spend a lot of time with their rear end up in the air, I think it should be decorated.

I should have posted this Monday, September 19th, since that is Talk Like a Pirate Day.  But sometimes I just don't quite get there.  Not that you have that problem, right? 

And it goes well with yesterday's post with the male priates.  Because women can be pirates also.

Pirate vs. Pirate

Sometimes, even when you use the same color dye it comes out differently. Both of these pirate shirts were dyed with black dye and were in one photo, I didn't modify the colors at all.

The one on the right has more of a purple cast to it. Black dye isn’t normally a ‘pure’ dye. It is made up of different colors of dye powder. So a weaker solution, or around the edges when tie-dyeing, won’t necessarily be gray. It might have a different color cast. Dharma describes the color cast each of their 4 black fiber reactive dyes has on the Description tab.

What can also happen is the color won’t be the same if the water used to dissolve the dye wasn’t warm enough. Some of the colors need hotter water to dissolve well. Fuchsia and turquoise both seem to dissolve better in warmer water. So some of one color’s particles might dissolve better than another color’s giving you something different than what you expected. That may not be a problem, it depends on what you want.

When you go fishing you just know those large fish are down there.  Just taunting you from the deep.  But all you catch are the little ones.  So long as it is a nice day out and you don't get lost, right?
