This 3-step process moves from color splashes of water color painting, to its monocromatic rendering, and finally to the intermingling of both in a variety of warp and weft weaves. Everything changes, sometimes very dramatically and the original work is greatly modified into new color rhythms and pattern. Sometimes, the result is a subtle and more placid composition.
Hi there friends! I can't wait to show you what I've recently learned. Have you heard of Furoshiki? I hadn't until a week a go, and I'm in love. Furoshiki is a Japanese technique, like origami, but for fabric! They are a type of Japanese wrapping cloth, used to transport food, gifts, or other goods.
I've been doing a lot of crafts lately, especially fabric-related things, it seems -- don't worry, we're still eating. I've been in a bit of a slump, cooking-wise, it seems, and anyway the weather has been so dreary for the past few weeks that photographing it would be next-to-impossible. ("No, honey, you can't eat it yet. I'm waiting for the sun to come out.") So I spare you.

My daughter Clover's 1st birthday is on friday which in our house means, time for a celebratory accessory! I thought about sewing her a Fabric Birthday Crown like the ones I made earlier this year for Craft Apparent b ut decided it might be fun to work up a sassier, no-sew version that would work well on her smaller head. Since Miss Clo is a little light in the hair department, she (read, I ) loves headbands. Enter, the Birthday Crown-Band! To commemorate her big 0-1, I used some hot pink vinyl along with fabric I had left over from her birth announcement collage .
