My label collection shirt

Studio Friday, part 2
I'm happy to be chosen to pick this week's topic!
Studio Friday October 27th suggested by
Silvia: MY COLLECTION(S)!
"Most people collect something, it would be fun to see what others have in their collections."

I used to hate the labels scratching my neck, so I took them off my clothes. Some were so pretty, I couldn't throw them out, so kept them in my sewing box. One day several years ago, I was not able to go to work, and started this shirt, and have been adding to it ever since.

I have several theme sections. Here are the Irish and rainbow labels: (and do click on the pics for a closer view)

Cartoons and Levis:


Lizards:

Unicorns and horses:

Girls:


Palm tree sleeve:


Plants and men:

Words:

That's all folks! ;-} Hope you enjoyed my shirt, I'm enjoying making it!

Oo how WONDERFUL This is!!! I bet this took a lot of time and attention! Do you collect only labels from Ireland or do you look for them all over? I'd LOVE to help you with this collection as I have some very intersting ones I can send to you!
I think it's intriguing what you are doing here making a shirt! It will be such an awesome piece once you finish it! Worth 1000's of dollars!!
Thanks so much for this topic! I had such a great time with it!
Oh.. and let me know if I can add to your son's and daughter's collections as well!
sláinte!

I never really think of it as becoming "finished". More like "when will I run out of room"? I think it will be covered fairly soon, within a year. I will then have to buy a new shirt to continue my collection!

I love this idea. I like the way you've accomplished a coherent design, as well as several separate collections. :-)

Yes, I used to go to thrift shops a lot, just to look and see if there are any pretty labels on clothing! Not so much anymore, I live too far from the city.
