Pattern Magic

Finally bought the Japanese pattern drafting books I keep spying on sewing blogs. Wow! Such innovative ideas. I've made a few scale models to test out the ideas. Will make some up full size at some point.

Arcade Fire, Hyde Park

Amazing day, amazing music, amazing stylist. Regine and Win love....

She wore a stunning cap sleeve, white dress with shots of colour across it. He wore the most amazing denim shirt with sew on badges, striped panels and bleached areas. They have similar outfits on in a publicity shot at the bottom. Must find out who styles them! My new idols!

Leaving presents

So it's almost the end of term and I'm leaving the school I teach textiles at to go travelling for a year. I had a sad day today saying goodbye to some of my classes- I have loved teaching there and will miss the students. I was overwhelmed by the gifts and cards I received. See photos:



Beautiful handmade bag



Decorated mannequin featuring vintage patterns and goodies
