ORGANISM


I've been distracting myself from my BIG projects by tinkering at little ones. This distraction is called "ORGANISM NECKLACE" and is made from vintage kimono off-cuts. The hand-stitch pulls the fabric in so that it gathers, ripples and creates an almost fungi look, or some unexplainable organism.

My paper urchins I've been making for a while now have been adopted by the retail clan at Craft Victoria. If you get a chance, have a look! They're $40 and are handmade from the start to finish!

Kimono off-cuts are brilliant, aren't they? There is something great about those Japanese fabrics and offcuts always make one think laterally about how best to put fragment to use. Beautiful work, B. Oh, and, love the new banner!

We love the urchins but that kimono piece is just beautiful, we always love seeing something new fashioned from a kimono off cut and these are no exception... excellent work!

Thanks, you gorgeous ones at handmadelife. I'm yet to find my pocket of success in the sales of these little beauties. {sigh!} But the encouragement is just as satisfying.
