Sun Skirt Tutorial

I’ve just added my first sewing tutorial video to YouTube, showing you how to make this sun circle skirt!

To make this skirt you’ll need 2 yards of the sun fabric I designed for this project from my Spoonflower shop, I’ve used their Sport Lycra, but you can also use their Modern Jersey or Organic Cotton Knit.

I’ve also designed similar fabric with earth and the moon, which are both available to order from my Spoonflower shop.

The sun and moon skirts are both available handmade to order from my Etsy shop if you’d rather I make them for you!

Poker Face

When I first played poker, I was learning the rules as I went along, which meant I had the perfect poker face. I looked just as blank if I had a good hand or a bad hand – because I had no idea which was which. The term ‘poker face’ inspired this painting. Apart from someone who has no idea what they’re doing, I figured that a skull would have the best possible poker face.

I’ve always had a morbid fascination with skulls, and painting one was a really interesting experience. You never really know what something truly looks like unless you try to paint it. You have to forget what it looks like in your mind and just focus on the shapes and colours in front of you. As soon as you can forget what you’re looking at, and just see it in shapes and colours, you can paint it.

I used this painting to create a design, which is now available to order on lots of things in my Redbubble shop

New Fabric Design!

  
My latest fabric design has just arrived from Spoonflower, and as always I am very happy with it! I painted these pasta shapes with acrylics, then scanned them in to digitally create a fabric design. I’ll be making skirts with this batch, and I’ll also order some thicker cotton to make aprons and tea towels at a later date. You can order this fabric for your own projects here: http://www.spoonflower.com/designs/4538495
