The process of cutting and sewing the Happy Sleepy pelts
There’s been a flurry of real in the world making activity all fall around here. I delight in having the laptop set up right beside the sewing machine set up right beside the cutting table, opposite the shelves of materials and tools. I glee up every time I pull a suitcase from under a table to rummage in my collection of fabrics, which is what the suitcases hold these days instead of clothes, books and other travel essentials. In short, I’m loving my studio space.
I’ve been dipping into the existing fabrics and clearing out small remnants, with the result that the latest Happy Sleepy designs have been pieced from contrasting colours and patterns, and each one these days is unique ane one of a kind because I won’t be able to recreate them once this fabric is gone. More importantly, using up existing fabrics and a few sales means I can buy more fabrics!
Creative mess also makes for good photo op. The images below show how two recent fauna were made.
