Month: June 2014
My guy and I attend a lot of music festivals together. So, in honor of our summer trips (Bonnaroo and Pitchfork), I made him a usb-mixtape. They look like those old cassettes we used to spend hours recording for potential boyfriends, crushes, or best friends. But, these have a nice little usb pop out, making…
screen printing x 2.
I took an amazing screen printing class at Gather Here back in June. Since then, I’ve burned a second screen, using an old drawing of Lionel Richie I once did for a card. Since I went to Bonnaroo Music Festival this summer, and Lionel killed the main stage on Saturday night, I figured it made…
I’m not into frilly coffee drinks. I take mine black, straight up, no add ins. I’m not picky about my coffee either. If its there, I drink it. I certainly appreciate the best of coffees, but let’s just say, I can’t live without it, and so I’ll get it any way I can. That being…
diy watermelon shorts.
I bleached some old cut off jeans I had, then dip dyed them in green and pink dyes for a watermelon feel. But nothing screams this fruit without a few seeds–hand drawn on with fabric dye markers. Something fun to do with old shorts in your wardrobe; gives them a lift for summer. And since…
These old cut offs of mine that I wasn’t wearing much will soon become some amazing hand dyed watermelon shorts. Once I saw someone do this, I had to jump at the idea. With Bonnaroo Music Festival next weekend, it seemed like the perfect time to reinvent some old items in my wardrobe. So watermelon…
Some brightly colored Chinese knotting thread to make these festively summery bracelets I saw the other day over at Purl Bee. The combinations are endless!
I took a screen printing class, held last week at my favorite handmade heaven, Gather Here, and taught by the brilliant Sarah Coyne of Eggagogo. Not only did I learn how to burn my own screens using a photo emulsion process, I got to print my first designs on fabric, a t-shirt, a tote bag,…
school boy vest and booties.
Some recent gifts, given to a co-worker for her first baby. This is the School Boy Vest by Tanis Lavallee, knit up using three different colorways of her gorgeous Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran Weight–chris gray, lucky penny, and shadow. The baby socks were also knit using remnants of the chris gray colorway, and…
peyote beaded earrings.
I made these peyote stitch beaded earrings for a graduating senior of mine. I think they fit her unique style, are hip to my own style, and will be greatly appreciated. I haven’t done enough beading lately. I have too many maker interests, and so, something has to give. I go through fits and spurts…
toasty x 2.
I’ve knit a bunch of these Toasty potholders for mine and friends’ kitchens. They are so quick, easy, durable, and beautiful. These bright red and tan ones were recently gifted to my mum for her newly renovated lake kitchen. I like how bright they are; and how vintage they feel. See other versions of my…
