I have a bunch of projects in production, but not many finished ones to show for this week.
I've been trying a few different headband styles for a while now and these are my favorite so far:
They're made of vintage neckties embellished with vintage appliques. The each have a matching cuff as well.
Also, I finally cut into this super-cool vintage Smokey the Bear bedspread I got at the Rose Bowl Flea Market over a year ago. I hope to get a couple little girl sundresses out of it, and maybe a wrap skirt and tote bag too if I'm lucky. Any leftover critters will go into embellished shirts like this one:
I made two of these in grownup sizes medium and extra large. I just love the color and graphic design of the animals. It reminds me of Mary Blair of oldskool Disney fame.
Goals for the week ahead: Finish personalized commissions, make some Smokey the Bear stuff, make more headbands and cuffs, and update the website.
Goal for Tuesday: Survive jury duty at the L.A. Courthouse. Ugh.
