Studying contrast of layered textures; hard and soft, bold and pastel colors, papers and mesh cut outs.
Fixing the back of the silk shirt. Lots of hand stitching involved as well as machine sewing. All holes patched with fabric samples and remnants. I ABSOLUTELY love upcycling! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
A goal is a dream with a deadline. - Random fortune cookie. Paper glued on a spread in my bullet journal, surrounded with paper samples colored with lip tartar and layered with ModPodge. 💋💋💋
I got these triangle-shaped fabric remnants... So why not make a pair of pants out of them? I need one anyway. 😉
Combining textile collage with marks made with Sharpie pens. I like the colorful #patchwork effect 🤔
Refashioned a woven moto jacket to a sleeveless blazer with a hidden pocket. Remove the zippers and sleeves, add hidden pocket, and voila! Hopefully it'll get a new life journey in this form. 🎁
Sometimes a small detail is what's needed to be impactful. Cut out from a vintage lace trim made in England, and hand stitched to the ends of an ivory satin ribbon.
For my textile study class, I was encouraged to create textures from non-typical materials. I did irregular pleats on bath loofah and printed mesh remnants. The result is intriguing, and now I'm tempted to make a whole garment using pleated bath loofahs! 🤔😊🤔😊😊
Fixing my accidentally-bleached silk shirt is underway. Patching the holes with fabric scraps and put them in place by machine sewing and hand stitching. Quite a tedious process, but it gets increasingly intriguing for each patched hole. Truly, my own boro shirt in the making! ❤️
