I went through my old sketchbooks and picked several designs that I thought would make neat brooches. They are all based off my own taste, but I will be open to suggestions in the coming months.
I also went through some of my fabric designs and took out a few elements here and there as tests.
All in all I’m very proud of all the new pieces and love seeing them up in the shop.
Oh and I also threw in some new XL Wall Scissors to mix things up a bit! These are made from 1/4″ MDF with Designer Fabric fused to the surface before laser cutting. They are a great addition to any sewing room (or any space really).
A few weeks ago I received an email from Zazzle.com with a coupon code for 50% off fleece blankets. I didn’t know that you could get custom made fleece blankets made, and the idea excited me. So I headed on over to their site and quickly uploaded a file and ordered myself a custom fleece blanket.
Beca of Tumbleweeds Handcraft posted a fun little challenge on instagram last week. It was to show your favorite “go to” outfit, it could be drawn, photographed or anything else you could think of. It was purely for fun, so I thought “why not try!”. I loved the little sketches so much, i wanted to share them on here…
My “go to” outfit has pretty much been the same for YEARS! The colors and shapes may change a bit, but the overall look is the same.
A comfy cardigan over a tank top, or sometimes a girls tshirt with something nerdy on it.
A pair of levis, usually cuffed wide a few inches above my ankles. I do this even in the winter.
In the summer it’s a pair of no show socks, in the winter it’s usually a pair of striped or polka dotted high socks.
As for shoes, I prefer New Balance 574′s. I also own a bunch of Van’s classics (slip-on’s and laced up) but I always go back to the 574′s. Currently I have a hunter green pair and my mom got me a pair of bright pink ones for xmas (I’m trying out bright colors this year).
I have a few purses, but the one that gets the most use is my Fossil Satchel.
Glasses. I always have glasses on, my newest pair are oversized maroon Ray-Bans.
I also wear dresses, boots and pretty shoes, but the above items are 100% my go to favorite things. They are comfortable and not too constraining. What are your favorite pieces of clothing?
I have a few projects coming up using some of these little drawings! I will obviously share them. I also had someone suggest a coloring book, which sounds pretty neat to me, so i may try that out too. All I know is I love drawing again, and that’s all that matters. Who cares if its good or bad!
