Wonky Production Underway Again

These little furry friends seem to sell like hotcakes in Peta's shop. Before I know it stocks are low and its time to get busy again. They are one of my favourite things to design, and I have some ideas percolating of how to utilize Spoonflower's custom fabric service to print fun things on Wonky limbs. For now though, I'll have to focus on using fabric from my gigantic existing stash...

Blue Rooms Complete

Nothing crafty happened this weekend. Highly unusual for me. But there was a good reason: deciding to not sell my house caused a flurry of inspiration to finish painting my living room. The walls were a nasty hangover from the previous owners, covered in a paint colour that I can only describe as "hint of nicotine". It didnt take too much effort to decide what colour to paint the wall. I only had about 42 swatches of the same blue, guess every time I went to Bunnings I picked out an inspirational colour, and 9 times out of 10 I picked out this shade. I love it.

Thank you package for Adele

My very generous friend Adele still has not received her Juicy Roo package of gratitude for sending me a gigantic stash of succulent crafty goodies from my beloved fabric store Dressew in Vancouver, BC. I've been meaning to make her a tshirt and an apron...I still have not mastered the perfect cut of apron, but am working on it. Love the kitchen graphic on the apron, I think it will be my first Spoonflower experiment. The tshirt features once again a lovely piece of Etsuko Furuya fabric. That woman is a genius!!

Making Tshirts - A Foolproof Project!

After a couple of mediocre results on the stitching front I decided to regain my stitching confidence with some new tees for Georgie Love. This one is based on a tshirt I made for my sister in law way back when, and its barely holding itself together after she has just about worn it to death. One of these days I will complete my tutorial on HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT TSHIRT!
My furry abyssinian friend ISIS loves helping when I sew.
