At the end of each week, I feature on my blog my latest work, which usually ends up in my Etsy shop. This week, I don't have a particular piece to showcase, even though I have a pile of drawings on my desk. For one reason or another, these drawings haven't gotten the stamp of approval yet. Some seem unfinished to me (like the above piece on the left), and others I'm not totally convinced I would want to add to my Etsy shop (like the one on the right).
Here's a closer look at the pile of recent drawings on my desk:
A couple of these pieces I might edit and mount on birch panels. You can see that I already cut out one image. Now I just need to wait for a wave of inspiration!
Yesterday, I was inspired to sew something. I wanted to salvage a pair of old white jeans and a cute nightie that was made from vintage sheets. But, instead of mending the items or altering them into other wearable fashions, I decided to use the materials to make a laptop bag! Here's how it turned out:
On Monday, I'll post more pictures and instructions. Monday is also the last day of the swap-a-thon. There's still a chance to win a swap, so make sure you post your comment by Sunday. Again, I'm open to swapping my art for anything handmade or found.
