Pouches

I had some leftover cotton canvas from another project, and decided to make some
makeup/travel pouches. I didn't have any cloth dye on hand so I coloured the fabric using
acrylic paints and lots of water. My favourite part is the brass zippers!

Wedding Dress

I know it's been quiet around here lately - but that doesn't mean I haven't been very busy! 
Over the past couple of weeks I have been working on a wedding dress for a dear friend. 
But I can't show you pictures of the dress until August. It's an ambitious project, 
as I am not a seamstress, and I have no experience making clothes - a wedding dress is a crazy 
place to start, especially working with raw silk - but so far it's coming along well and I am really 
excited to show it to you when it's done! For now, a few photos of the lace 
I will be incorporating into the dress, and some charming nautical brass buttons.
