Drops

20160711_131439These are to be part of a street art project I’m working on.  I didn’t realize there were so many of them until I took them out of the bag to take a picture.

Facing faces

I’ve been thinking of what to do with my embroidered faces. In the end i decided to just put them in a frame. There is something in the composition I don’t like, but I’ll put them on a wall and see if I can figure out how to rearrange them. Or maybe I will like it after a while.Foto-2042

The fabric I’ve emboidered on is a thrift shop find. I suppose someone made a chair seat and cut a cirkel out of it, because there were four corners left. I like the rounded line and wanted the coarse feeling of the fabric to be visible. This way, the shape of the fabric parts is a picture in itself.

‘Tis the time of the year…

…when I start making lots of trunks. If you want to make your own x-mas gifts and is looking for something not too difficult but very appreciated. look no further.Foto-1987 I’ve made lots of comox trunks, and had lots of praise. You buy the pattern here (it’s not mine, not connected to me in any way, I just like it).

I’ve got plans to change the pattern and take away the baggy front to fit me as well, will let you know how that goes.

Caped. Shortly. In the dark.

I put the cape on yesterday afternoon. It was a bit tight over the shoulders, the holes were meant for her hands to stick out, not the shoulders , so it looks a bit more like a dress than a cape. The dark falls early in Stockholm in the fall, so the pictures aren’t great. When I came back to take some better ones at noon today, the cape was already gone. Feels a bit sad actually. This time I signed my creation, though, so maybe I’ll get some feedback from the person who took it.Foto-1977

Time and again

Foto-1973It really IS time to start working on Christmas presents. It really is, but it’s so hard to stop doing this

Faces

My second face is finished.

Baby it’s cold outside

Foto-1964It’s getting cold, so I’ve made a cape for Mimi, the statue I dressed up this summer.

The challenge is to get her arms into it. I’ve made two rectangular openings and hope they’ll be in the right place.

Of course, i could have taken her measurements last time, but where’s the sport in that?

I made the openings by sewing a rectangle of fabric on the right side of the cape, where I wanted the openings. I then cut an opennig in the middle, turned them inside out and fastened the rim with a very narrow zig sag. Foto-1962
