About this Product

Enjoy the comfort of an ice-dyed short-sleeved  pocketed shirt in multiple colors and shades of blue with a bit of "dragon fruit" which is a reddish purple. 

The ice dyeing process causes the dyes to separate, so many unplanned colors emerge to create one-of-a-kind patterns. This shirt reminds me of life at the bottom of the ocean.
This shirt is size XL Gildan brand and can be worn by men or women. 

Ice-dyeing gives each piece a unique flow of colors that delights the eye. Everyone sees something new— a Monet painting, an outer-space asteroid, a floral design. The more you look, the more images you see in each piece.   They often look hand-painted because of the patterns. 
I love working with color and don’t subscribe to the idea that certain colors only go with other colors—I create my own possibilities.

Ice-dyeing is not tie-dyeing. The fabric can be folded, twisted, laid out, or basically manipulated many ways to create unique freeform patterns. Each piece has different design elements.
Care: I recommend machine washing in cool water with like colors the first time. I have washed each piece in hot water with a double rinse cycle, but occasionally some dye remains. The colors are amazingly colorfast and won't fade from washing.

Meet the Maker

My name is Patt, spelled with 2 t's because I like to stand out from the many Patricias and Pats in this world.

Creating new, colorful art suits my multi-tasking lifestyle.

Born in San Francisco and raised on the Peninsula, I found knitting, then weaving as "indoor sports" after moving to the coast and experiencing summer’s heavy coastal fog. 

Vivid colors and textures drive my work as a textile designer. I consider myself eclectic — I knit, weave, felt, dye, and design and create jewelry. My passion is blending colors and textures into jewelry and textile designs while not following rules and doing the expected. I strive for wearable art pieces - my works are one of a kind. I create unusual pieces and prefer being ahead of the crowd rather than part of it.
Ice-dyeing led me to dye textiles for fashion designers. My work has sold in stores and at craft shows 4 to 5 times a year. I love the in-person selling, but like many artists, the pandemic forced me online, which has been a bonus because now I have new customers from all over the country.

I started online as Patt711 on Etsy and success encouraged me to add GoImagine.com with its new give-back concept. If you live in or visit the SF Bay Area around Thanksgiving, I also participate in Open Studios in November and that information can be found on our website: www.colonyofcoastsideartists.com 
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I do creating it.

I purchased the Gold Bracelet with Czech beads and dragonfly charm for my wife for mother's day. When I was browsing through Patt711's merchandise I had a hard time making a decision because each piece had so much character. I was impressed a how quickly it arrived. My wife loved it and has already received compliments. I have purchased bracelets from other online distributors, but I must say the inventory from this shop was amazing. I really liked the uniqueness of each jewelry piece. I would definitely purchase from Patt711 again.
