Funky fabric, handmade totes, fabric in mixed media. These are things I am playing with right now. I will be including one sewing project in my book, so I have been practicing and practicing and slowly improving my skills with my sewing machine. I bought some great fabric at this store Reprodepot Fabrics for this purpose. It is a little frustrating that I am not as neat and tidy as sewing dictates. I prefer working in a slightly messy, random way, but I guess I need to be stretched.
One of the contributors to my book, Ellene McClay is an excellent seamstress, her work has inspired me to get on this fabric path and to see the beauty in handmade clothing and things. She has an Etsy store where you can buy her lovely mixed media creations, jewelry and clothing. Check her out!
