A weaver friend, Elizabeth Hill, made the most wonderful skirt out of handwoven fabric.
I was looking at it and thought…. that skirt would look nice out of eco printed fabric!! About the same time that I was thinking that, she wrote to me and said, “I think that this skirt would look wonderful out of some of your eco print fabric!”
So I have begun the process. Today I printed some of the sea dipped wool that I had brought back from Portland. I tore the fabric into rough pieces slightly bigger than the pattern pieces.
I had thought to make the large pocket sections with just silver dollar eucalyptus, as a nice complimenting contrast. But I added some cotinus leaves to them, and regret it a bit. Ah well.
Here are a few close up details…….
Will let the fabric set until my next weekend…. and then will begin the task of learning how to use my new sewing machine. Yes, I know, I’ve had the machine since May….. you would think that I would’ve learned how to use it by now! 😀
While I am writing this I have a loaf of ‘paleo’ fruit bread baking…. it smells so yummy!!
