Here's a selection of prints I've made so far in a fabric art and design class I'm taking:
I'm hoping to use some for Blythe clothes, or as linings for bags and purses. Lots of fun, but I'm really looking forward to exploring fabric paints and resist applications.

Sewing a-go-go

In preparation of two upcoming craft shows, I've been sewing like mad. To broaden my audience, I've started making bags (for people, not Blythe). It's been a bit of trial and error, figuring out the correct type of fabric to use, and whether to add padding, and what to line them with, and what kind of closure... I have a few that I'm really happy with, so now I need to get going with some more.

I've also finally figured out how to make a good coat for Blythe. Sleeves are such a challenge for me, but this lightweight corduroy is very easy to work with.
