I always loved coloured pencils, so making this to carry one of my favourite art tools everywhere is a bit like a childhood dream. I got back to them just a little while ago when I started with a colouring book and used them for my own art. A wrap like this can be used for many different kinds of pens and pencils, as well as for brushes and other art supplies.
I love when people come to me with ideas that I might never have and let me sew something unique for them - being it a loyal or new customer. Time to show you the custom orders I made in the past months. I call this shirt a summer top and make it in all variations. There've also been two belt bags, an old classic and a completely new style, plus a skate accessory.
I'm back from my summer break and travel through the south of the country. It was great to be out and offline, but I didn't forget about you and brought back some many photos. The credit for not only the photography but also finding this breathtaking location goes to my partner David. It's an old quarry directly at the coast of the Isle of Portland.
I mentioned Zero-Waste fashion three weeks ago in this blog post on two eco-designers. Through Yhonia's Instagram, I found those red zero-waste panties by @duckgoesoink - just when I needed more undies. I like my own pattern, but it requires much more fabric than you'd think and leaves a lot of oddly shaped scraps - such a waste. So, I gave it a try and have some tips and ideas for you.
I became a bit unhappy with my old EOS 400D from 2006 recently. The pictures turned out too dark and slightly blurry, so I had to do a lot of editing. So it was time for a new model. The 800D has double the pixels, a rotatable touch screen - so I can see what I'm doing - and a video function, just to name the three most important differences for me. So here are my first shots.
If you missed the online market, this is for you. Summer is here, and we are finally allowed to go out again, so a belt bags comes in handy on a walk through the town or an evening in the beer garden. If you need to carry around a bit more - a small grocery shopping after work or a sixpack and a jacket for meeting friends in the park - the new shoulder bags are just right.
I'd like to introduce you to two slow fashion designers today, whose designs go together very well. We drove to the Yorkshire Moors to have an unusual landscape as an excellent backdrop for a post-apocalyptic vibe in nature. I totally wear these outfits to work, though. You know I'm always happy to spread the word about independent designers, even though I have to mark this post as an advertisement.
Maybe it's the weather that doesn't feel like it's the end of May already. On the positive side, things are opening up again. I could meet friends in a beer garden, and it was lovely. I got my first dose of vaccine, and I'm getting tattoed later today. In this blog post, I'll tell you a bit about what I'm working on for Zebraspider and what other news happened or are coming up soon.
This is the second blog post about my 100-day project. I started it at the beginning of 2021 and wrote about it halfway through - about what it is and what I did. I chose pattern design as topic because I have been designing fabrics for a while now, and I love sewing unique products with them. I wanted to expand my portfolio and carry out all the ideas I had in my head. It was partly successful and partly not.
In case you don't follow my blog for some years, a summary of the white vest story first: I discovered a white vest in 2017 along with some UK bands after moving here. I collected patches from local bands and added them shortly after. A year later, I reconstructed the collar and started to add studs. I didn't wear it often because it's still a bit bright for my eyes.
