First attempt at sewing a stuffed animal
Lessons learned: 1.) Sewing curves is not that difficult, but requires patience. 2.) Small things are way more difficult to sew than big things.
This was basically the prototype for a fox lamp I want to make. Hopefully the next one will come out much better!
New curtain tie backs!
Got some super cute fabric from fabric.com that goes great with our blue couch. And in between the windows is a painting with a lot of pink hues, so the flowers on these will be a nice accent for that. Making new curtains next from a nice light gray fabric!
The purple one on the bottom right is an example of the crappy hand sewn ones that I threw up super fast when we moved in. Machine sewn is sooo much better!
Shapes of Conscious
With this sketchbook, I’ve been challenging my creativity by starting first with a simple shape, drawn without the end goal in mind. Once the shape is drawn, I go about filling it with a character that develops a story of its own. The idea here is to get out of my own way, to let the drawing develop itself without forcing it into a desired narrative or purpose.
