These are some of my latest Jumper/vest type transformed thingys.

I think the brown and blue is my favourite so far, it was for my lovely singning teacher.

The lovley Andrea is modeling the red vest which lived its former life as an 80's Italian jumper, I like it much better as a vest, I cut little sticky outy shoulder bits which I quite like also.

The last picture is my two lovelys, R and K.

We are about to get on a plane to Thailand , then on to Uk for a month to see family.
Long haul flight.Two children. Wish me luck.
I will try to post whilst away if I can manage to work out how to do it on another computer.

love MiM

This is another of the jumper/vest type creations I have been making.
Silly old me forgot to take a before photo again...
It was a very puffy sleeved 80's looking hand knit jumper, mohair I believe.
I have felted ,hacked, added and recontructed to form the vest you now see.
Every moment of the process is pure bliss.
By the end of the process I find myself a little sad to be selling them.
This one sold the day after i put it in the shop, I was there when the lovely lady purchased it, I like getting to meet the people that buy my work .

So, goodbye for now little assymetrical vest friend, I hope your enjoy your new life . . . . .

More Jumper transformations

Since enjoying this jumper transformation so much, I have been unstoppable, I cant stop, I am addicted.
They have been really popular in the shop and selling like hotcakes.
I really feel like people can tell when you have enjoyed making something. If I ever get bored with something I am creating to sell, I stop and try something new.

I have spent countless hours cutting, felting , deconstructing and re-constucting many old jumpers over the last couple of months, it has been so much fun!

Alas, spring will soon be here so I might have to stop for a while :(

Here is my lovely girl wearing her very own , made last week.
more show and tell soon x x

Time certainly does pass by very quickly, its been a long time between posts.
It seems I have had one of those unintentional little breaks.

In these last few weeks I have been a busy little bee in the studio, the kids and I were also lucky enough to have a week in Queensland, it was glorious spending time in the ocean and being shone on by the warm sun.

I have posted here, photos of some eco- printing I did before going to QLD.
All credit for this method goes to the extremely talented and very inspiring India Flint .

I made a felt scarf with merino wool and silk and then laid Eucalyptus leaves on top.

Then the whole lot was rolled bundled and tied before being put in the steamer for a couple of hours.

The leaves give amazing colours and patterns.

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to!
