I'd be lying to you I said I didn't love a good harem pant.
So, when my friend T turned up with these
before our our sewing bee together on Saturday I was pretty chuffed.
Got to it straight away and styled them with a sensible black jacket and
a couple of Flora-One-of-a-Kinds.
Not sure where their 100% rayon, silky, paisley goodness
will take me, but I'll let you know.
T and I spent the day crafting eco-bags out of painted canvasses.
Trialing a project for the workers.
We loved it, anyway.
Here's T's lovely posture at the Janome.
She's also in the harem pant uniform.
One of the workers painted this giraffe.
I loved it.
Here's the canvasses laid bare.
This field of poppies gets my People's Choice Award.
I stitched a bit of mane hairiness on that said giraffe.
T's jumbo surrealist eco-shopper was the bag o' the day.
Blew a bit of dust out of the 35 year old Bernina.
Got stuck into mane stitching for Leo.
And got carried away trying to interpret a stitched Flora on this painted portrait.
This is a section of T's red surrealist peacock, as below.
On her large eco-bag.
Could scare a few shoppers out of the checkout queues.
Fun and free therapy! Thanks, T!
Highly recommended. Do have anything you can make into something?
