Leafy floral

I borrowed a scanner from my neighbour and after scanning all my new doodles and designs I found myself searching through my old files to see what was worth scanning. I have one dedicated to tessellations and working on grids. A part of this leafy floral pattern was in it so I scanned and quickly tested the full repeat. I like it. I'll give it some colour, eventually.

Colour play

Pattern made by mixing two colours to find several shades between. I coloured four different shapes with colour pencils, then multiplied on the computer.

Book cover in my own design

I'm looking for quick and nice things to sew with my printed fabrics. I tried making this book cover with my pink zigzag design. Although it wasn't that quick in the end.. I learnt how to improve for the next one and it made a very nice present combined with the matching little card.

I made one of these for our neighbour's 6th year old birthday too! Sorry, the pictures aren't great.

Reptile T-shirts

I made these t-shirts for my nephew and niece who came to visit. I sewed around the figures with zigzag (tacked them before) and then embellished by hand with beads, cord and hand stitching. I'm very happy with the result. I used old t-shirts for the cut outs, so it's a bit of recycling too!
