I like to work on my pieces for a long time. I am fascinated by subtlety - which doesn't always come across in photos on the internet. I am hoping that detail shots will reveal a bit nuance.
I get a cabin fever and try to go out on the few days that it stops raining.
I have been working on the new refashion project. Another men's t-shirt, this time I am making it into a woman's t-shirt. That may not sound like a big change but I think it will look quite different as I have turned around the front design to the back, and the back design to the front.
If you want to see the original t-shirt, and the design that was on the front go here.
As you can see, all has not been perfect. As if it ever is, haha. Somehow I managed to cut one side out longer than the other. Because it is all hand-stitched I am not quite sure how this is going to work out. I will be cutting off that hanging bit, but I have a feeling it will still be rather lop-sided.
I am attempting to create a new website. To do this I am having to teach myself Wordpress. It is all quite slow with a big learning curve. And everything takes much longer than I ever would have imagined. But I hope when I am finished to have a much better showcase for my art. In the meantime it is taking a lot of time and energy, some of which I probably could have been putting into this blog.
Oh, one final thing I wanted to show you. My new sewing books from Amazon. I have a fantasy to create a few basic simple patterns that actually fit me that I can make and remake in different ways.
