More fabric painting

Here's a shirt I made for Ellie. In the picture you can't tell that the bears each have a letter on them so it spells out "Ellie." In person you can kind of tell but it's not very clear and until I painted the letters you couldn't tell at all. But it's a really cute shirt and kind of reminds me of Grateful Dead bears, which I like. I'm going to practice painting a bear on some fabric and if I don't mess it up I'll try painting these bears. It still works for me as line drawings, though. I have a feeling she's never going to wear it (like the gorgeous tie-dyed dress that she made that she never wears), but I hope I'm wrong!
