First off, I have to say how much I love the sewing blog community. Without you guys, I'd never see cool stuff happening with sewing. It's truly inspiring. And today I found a super awesome independent pattern maker (Something I want to be someday) and she is AMAZING. I bought one of her patterns right away, and I can't wait to make it. Seriously, check out Victory Patterns now if you know what's good for you. (I got ANOUK, and I'm eying HAZEL). I love how simple and complicated the designs are (at the same time! it's fantastic). I know I usually never see such unique designs in the big four pattern company's catalog. (for shame)

And now to something else new! I finished my midterm for my Computer Graphics (Kaledo) class yesterday, and presented it this morning. I don't think I did too bad. Our assignment was to pick an artist and design something inspired by their paintings. So of course I chose Mat Barber Kennedy (who else?) So Kaledo is this big program for fashiony people and it helps you create prints in repeat, and other cool stuff I haven't learned yet. And you can make these prints in multiple colors n such. It's pretty cool, but if you're used to the way Adobe does things (Photoshop/Illustrator) it takes some getting used to (very frustratingly so). So here's my 2 prints. One is a border print (as modeled by my croquis), and the other is a normal print repeat. Fun stuff.

I promise that soon I'll post pictures of non computer related stuff I've been making too. Sometime soon. Yes. Oh, and quite possibly some history of costume stuff I did. :)

  1. You crafty girl. How fun to see my colour scheme turned into your textiles. I'd wear that fabric as a tie in shark with the lines in brick red. Nice.
