… and more men

By spotogspindel | July 23, 2015

Still more men in the making. Dozens of them. I am making the panties for the bra I made for my Textile-culture exam.

I outlined the patten form a pair of panties I already had, but am not sure if this size will fit anyone, as the elasticity is less in the embroidery than in the lycra lace of store-bought panties.

Finally finished. Now all that remains is to put it in water, and see the fabric disappear! 🙂

In a break I made this new passport-purse. My old one broke in Sri Lanka, and I haven´t gotten around to making a new one until today. The ribbon on the top is a Japanese kimono-fabric, I think I got that in San Francisco  3-4 years ago. The Japanese embroidery was a small silk embroidered picture I found at a local charity-shop. And the bottom ribbon, I think I got in France years ago. It´s nice to finally put some of all my stash to use!

Since I finished the men, I got started on a new piece. So far all I know is the title:

There are so many remnants from all the needlepoint embroidery pieces I´m working with, that I decided to make a piece just from the remnants. It´ll be called JUST ADD COLOR.

In the evening my friend Anne came to visit. She´s just bought a new apartment and needed a big piece of art in the living room. I found a big canvas, we put on some music and got started with the paint and the spatulas…. four hours later we were finished.

This piece is very much inspired by the artist Alf Ertsland, who paints in oil, and gets a depth to his paintings we can only dream about. But still, we were happy with the result, and I am looking forward to seeing it on her wall.
