I’m still at it, working on new pieces for the American Craft Council’s annual show in Baltimore.
That pieced “trench coat” from my last post? It was just a pile of fabric scraps then, but is now a recognizable shape.
Many, many little pieces of fabric went into this one.
More for the back and sleeves and it will be ready the show, February 21- 23.
I cannot resist these classic Japanese kimonos. This one was covered with good luck symbols, cranes and pine trees over ocean waves. What could be more Japanese than that?
It’s so satisfying to resurrect these old unwearable kimonos and rearrange the fabrics into a new shape. This one will be a trench coat.
Another new jacket. Can you see it? I’ve finished step one, piecing the blocks. Next I’ll lay them out, piece them together and,
Voila! A jacket!
