we were pretty pumped when we found out (a week ago!) that Handsoap would be included in People Magazine's holiday gift guide... we didn't know until we saw the issue yesterday that it was selected by Molly Ringwald and that she says "they're soaps but also cool sculptures. i place them in a dish to display on a shelf"... talk about icing on the cake!
i am having fun adding special details to these new screen-printed kitty pouches. i found some deluxe metal zippers with an antique brass finish and decided to add leather pulls, so i searched around for mini rivets to match. oh, and we printed our logo on the lining, too... renegade shoppers get first dibs!
pretty excited about these new postcards (featuring our art & film photos). we'll have over 30 different postcards to sell at Renegade!
my favorite might be the "color & send" postcard... i had it printed on special un-coated paper so you can color in all the faces, animals and miscellaneous doodles before sending it along. i had fun coloring this one:
who doesn't love a hoodie? here's one i made from an 1980s kwik sew pattern with thrifted knit fabric. this pattern is great. the cropped length and fitted waist make for a less sloppy sweatshirt. and the hood is a good size, too. i opted for a loop and button front closure instead of the exposed zipper. for this i had to draft a front facing, since the pattern didn't include one (see last photo). the fit is great and it's quite comfy... now i just need to find a good pair of high-waisted jeans so i can wear it.
super-excited to say that we'll be setting up shop at the renegade craft fair in chicago this december 7th & 8th. lots to do and make!
i've been ordering supplies and such, some of which are more exciting than others... these fabrics, for example: a handful of my designs washed and ready to be made into zippered pouches and other things. the gritty kitties make me giddy.
