About

I have two 2 great children 8 and 15 that helped inspire our shop! Boy Girl Boy Girl Designs is a small home based business made up of a mother and a daughter who love to paint. We are self taught artists who previously worked with acrylics on wood. Our work has been sold in galleries, boutiques, and by commission. Now we are painting on fabric. We see each piece of clothing as a blank canvas ready to be turned into wearable art. Since we each have a different style of painting there is something to suit just about anyone's taste. But we both love polka dots!

*THE CLOTHING:

Quality and softness are a priority. Our line features reinforced snaps,soft needle double rib bindings and flat lock seams. They can go through many washings and still look great. We prefer combed ring spun cotton or cotton jersey because they feel super soft on your skin.The clothing is stitched with all cotton thread so when they are dyed there is no white stitching showing. A little more expensive but well worth it because the finished piece looks super. All clothing is preshrunk.Wash cold, inside out and line dry for best results. Most mom's tell me they wash them on warm in the machine and tumble dry and they are fine. Crystals cannot go in the dryer, tho.

*DYES AND PAINTS:

All of our dyes and paints are professional grade, safe and non-toxic. The colors and designs are permanent by heat setting. They can survive many washings and still remain vibrant and colorful.

*WHY I LOVE HAND DYING:

I prefer hand dying in small batches. It's a little labor intensive and my water bill has sky rocketed but I can't stop. The colors are just too fabulous. There is a depth, warmth and intensity that I can't find in mass produced clothing...and I get to watch The Food Network for hours and hours.

*MATERIALS AND DESIGNS:

We use a variety of methods. We use silk screens, wood blocks, applique, stencils, stamps and paint free hand. We paint our own screens and hand carve our stamps and wood blocks. I am a big fan of wood blocks because of the irregularities in the print. They give the clothing a real hand made look. The painted clothing has a "painterly" look..just like a canvas.
