Etsy Summit at Bristol



Few weeks ago I went to Bristol to attend Etsy Team Captain's Summit (a sort of a conference! :) ). It was great fun, I learned a lot, met lots of awesome people and absolutely fell in love with Bristol.


My hotel room was number 404, which probably made me way too happy :P
 

One of the things we did was go and explore Brunel's SS Great Britain. I love ships :O




 

Last but not least the ship's cat :D (one of three). Love a bit of awkward taxidermy... :P

Sara's bags

So a wee while ago a friend commissioned a couple of super custom bags (they are kind of similar to your shopper bag but the strap is so long you can wear it cross body). Alas, at last they are finished and she has them now so i can post it here :) so i sewn these and added the prints too.




The banjo goat is also going to be a new design on the regular shoppers i do :-) soon to be added to the etsy shop.

Happy Mother's Day!

I had this idea for a few days and finally got round to do it. You could say it's a bit last minute but only if you are in thhe UK really... As it appears mother's day is celebrated in every country pretty much on a different date. This is a photo so sorry about the quality :-[

decomposition

Did two colour versions of this picture - I couldn't decide which colour scheme would be better so just did both :P This is some bumbling around a comic project which I am half-working on ;)

Christmas decorations: the making of!

The previous post featured these guys:


First of all, print my drawings onto some fabric! (I did them digitally in my now new favorite drawing software: Manga Studio :P). The patterned fabric is fabric some offcuts one of my other studio neighbours very kindly gave to me, Rowanjoy. The key thing is that it had GOLD in it, and as we know GOLD=XMAS ;). As for the Magikarp... Not sure how that got there! :P


First off I attached head to the body that was just black fabric...


And ten sew around it, trim excess and TURN IT OUT.


The Poppy doll was like the hardest thing I think I have ever sewn, to be precise - trying to turn it out was HAAAAARD. The arms and legs were so thin! But I made it in the end. And the second hardest thing was probably these miniature shorts ;)


..and then proceeded to do the easier bits, the castings. The backs are made of the blingy fabric too to match the doll ;)


Then they got STUFFED. One of these things is slightly different that the others... Can you tell which one? ;)


And that is it! This was probably the most exciting little project I did in December! Along with the Magikarp tote... Incidentally I think these were the only two little projects.

I wasn't going to do any New Year resolutions apart from the "get mean at banjo", but I think I should have one. This one: TAKE BETTER PHOTOS :O
