I've done it - all 7 bags I wanted to get done are finished!  I might get more done by the Tour in September, but I'm pleased I've done this many in time for that show.  

 From an indigo dyed shibori (Japanese resist dyeing technique) sample of mine, which I manipu...

I'm more than halfway through my goal - I've got three more after these I want to get done before my first fall show of the year.  There are pockets inside each bag, and handles which are shaped for comfortable grip.  

Those shown (also shared on Instagram!) are...

If you found yesterday's Instagram post you'll already know, but if not, I'd like to show you what I've been making.  This is the first of a series of large carry-all bags combining digitally printed fabrics (cotton or cotton-linen) using my print designs and solid col...

I may not get to another blog post for a bit, but I have been working on some new scarves I want to share.  These roughly 11" wide x 64" long scarves are cotton voile (light weight), digitally printed with my own designs, and lined with solid silk colours.  They have t...

You may have read the post about personal projects, in which case you'll know I have been making a tote bag as a gift for someone who gave me a piece of embroidered silk, which I incorporated into the bag.  Happy to show you the finished bag - I've paired the embroider...

Hello! I hope you’re all having a good summer.  I'm working toward the Studio Tour in September - see the Events page for details -, so I'm sewing, and want to get to some painting soon as well.  There's always a 'to do' list before a show, not just getting the display...

Textiles again this week.  These little cross-body pouch bags are each made with silk dupioni fabrics, which are available in bright colours, and the thick threads give texture.  Silk is a protein fibre, and has a high tensile strength.  These bags are reinforced insid...

This week I'm going to talk about one of my textile products - these are my brush rolls.  Each one is made with cotton fabrics, in two sizes.  The insides are lined with solid colours, and the outside using one of a selection of my digitally printed designs.  The desig...
