the sewists

August 29th, 2014

i’m so excited to have a printing/sewing project in josephine perry’s beautiful new book ‘the sewists’

the sewists apron

 

the sewists book

i came up with this screen printed apron project inspired by the talavera tiles in my kitchen, it’s one of my favorite parts of the house!

the project uses contact paper stencils to print 6 squares of fabric which are sewn together to make the pattern…like tiles. you can take a peek at a PDF of the project here. the pattern artwork is included in a CD that accompanies the book.

the book features 20 projects ranging from bookbinding, doll making and cross stitch to sewing accessories and clothing. it is available for pre-order on amazon here.

just finished STUFFING a medium flat rate box full vintage fabric swatches and pieces left over from my limited edition skirts , including some pieces of the highly coveted lion fabric!  that’s almost 4 pounds of fabric!

great for all sorts of crafty projects. if you would like them for patchwork or what-have-you (there are a lot of decent sized pieces for larger projects), leave a comment telling me what you would make with them, and i’ll randomly pick a recipient a week from now and send you a medium flat rate mailing box (that’s 11″ x 8.5″ x 5.5″) stuffed to the gills with fun fabric pieces!

(US addresses only, please. international shipping for the box is over $60! yikes!)

a couple of projects

July 17th, 2014

a couple of projects i’ve been working on around here…

painted a hex sign table.

hex sign table

(ps- i started posting photos on instagram here: instagram.com/madewithlovebyhannah )

i used the same design as my hex sign rug pattern, just modified it a little. i printed it out to the size of the table and traced it on using dressmakers tracing paper and a wheel. that worked great! i have a feeling i will be using that trick pretty often. the hole was there for an umbrella i guess…considered filling it in but then thought it would look pretty cute with a red and white striped umbrella so i left it.

got this cute-shaped upholstered trunk/ottoman thingy at the thrift store a while ago. did a little vinyl applique and added some button accents.

the top was pretty beat up but the rest of the vinyl wasn’t ripped so i just recovered the top and spray painted the rest of it. i used this little box and my honeycake chairs as inspiration.

i like the straw fabric lining the inside
