I finally found a little bit of time to try out some more constructed textile ideas I’d been playing with, inspired by the Sew It Up book already mentioned.
Gorgeous red wool tartan from a beautiful skirt which sadly will never ever fit me again but I couldn’t bare to part with. And for an unexpected, contemporary twist, lined with Japanese, Beetle (Bug) type car printed cotton. It was also my first attempted at a two-sectioned clip frame and even that turned out perfectly much to my amazement.
And a fancy schmancy two layered, four pieced frou frou ruffle on the front.
I love how it turned out. I planned to keep it all along, though I’m not sure when or where I could ever use it so it may yet appear in the shop…
