I made a lizard. I dyed the lighter green fabric – it used to be pale yellow. He’s a funny little guy.
I’m getting ready to start making backdrops for my pieces to sit on. I’m thinking about covering boxes in fabric. I’d like to keep things simple and let the pieces really show. And I need to buckle down and figure out how to design the postcard in Illustrator. God help me. I would rather be sewing, but at some point I need to get these other things done in order for the show to come together.
One of the things I love most about reading craft blogs is seeing the inspiration behind the finished pieces. Susan is doing a beautiful series for 30 days showing earrings she’s made alongside photos of what inspired them. I love this – very little needs to be said, just let the work speak to the viewer on its own.
