Sew crazy

January 21, 2010

For the last couple of days, i had the pleasure and honor to help Susan on some projects she’s working on for her new book! If you are unfamiliar with her work, just click the links to her books Bead Simple and Button it up. Here a little peak into our sewing bonanza where bobbins flew, the iron steamed 24/7 and two facing sewing machines went through layers and layers of beautiful fabrics. She’s got a really good eye for fabric coordination and obviously a quite extensive collection of beautiful vintage and modern fabrics. Most of which she can tell you a lovely little story. Needless to say, the time flew by and we got quite a lot done. Very exciting.

I also wanted to show the ‘half way’ before and after shot of the trunk that i grabbed at House of Vintage on Hawthorne for the seek fundraiser at The Bhaktishop. It was pretty beat up when i got it, so i lined it with some of the remnants of our lovely wallpaper, you might already be familiar with. I haven’t taken a photo of the whole arrangement at the shop, but will do so tomorrow. The fundraiser is going until Saturday this week, which is the 23rd. If you are into yoga, want to help Haiti relief efforts and want to your money matched by Nike, here’s your chance.
