The right tools: don't use the pleater (left) when you can use the ruffle foot (right). A much simpler foot, it does what it is supposed to without glitching. The pleater foot is great if you want tiny, tiny pleats and need to get a LOT of fullness down into a short span, but otherwise don't bother. #sewingtips#therighttool#fashion The pleater either pulls the needle out, or skips pleats, or falls off completely. When it works, it's magical though. Lol #sewing#ruffles
Ich hab nicht nur eine Presse zum Geburtstag bekommen, sondern auch noch eine Pixscanmatte 😍 die musste ich direkt mal ausprobieren. Kleinste Reste lassen sich damit verarbeiten. Ein mal eingerichtet geht das super schnell. Ich freu mich 😄 leider hab ich nur ein paar #dunkelbilder weil ich zum ausprobieren neuer Technologien einfach ruhe und Zeit brauche, und das geht bekanntlich mit Kindern nur spätabends 😉 #pixscan#pixscanmatte#cameo2#cameo#plotten#plottenfürkinder#nähen#sewing#dankeschön liebe @thoiboi 😘
|#Exhibition : El Pelo Largo | Notoriety: Carmen Julia • @carmenjuliadurangharcia | | Artist Statement: "
I've been told what to do my whole life. I've been dragged and moved from one place to another without saying a word and agreeing to everything I had been told. This year I decided that was it. I’m old enough to make my own decisions, and to say if I’m okay with something or not. I made my first selfish decision. I chopped my hair off and got control over my life. That girl with the long hair is gone. " | Curator: @saltydog226 of @chopsueyclub • Curator Statement:
All 30 works here were made during Carmen’s travels between modeling gigs. She began sewing on her comp cards as sewing kit was easy enough to carry in her small luggage hence became her choice of material. The different layers of materials she uses reconstructs the existing images, and creates a sense of space and separation. Her expressionistic use of pastel colored mesh, threads and beads is feminine and juvenile as if she is in no rush to become a woman. Many female artists reject the notion of “woman art” because it sounds derogatory, when in fact this term should be embraced because it is a unique opportunity to be a woman. This show to me is an inner discussion on womanhood, modeling and creativity. | Come see it while it's still up | Location: Chop Suey Club • 83 Hester St, Two Bridges,Manhattan, NYC| Photojournalist • Chief-In-Editor: @d3tconcepts|________________________________________________________ #travelgram#travel#traveling#photojournalism#d3tmag#journal#model#blogger#blog#interview#fashion#sewing#chopsueyclub#embroidery#entrepreneur#lifestyle#fabric#women#magazine#newyork#newyorkcity#fineart#d3t#art#editorial#inspo#inspiration#moda#fashion
FINALLY FINISHED!! Ok I finished a little bit ago, but haven't posted. Here she is, my first handmade dress. There is literally blood, sweat and tears in the dress. I have a whole new appreciation for garments now. I am by NO means a seamstress, you ladies are True Gods!. For my next project I'm going to stick to a skirt. #b6318
Testing out shorties in the garden. I'm SO bad at deciding whether I like stuff sometimes and I wasn't too sure on these over a harem style but this pattern has really grown on me! He looked so cute waddling around in them! 😂❤️
The sewing has begun again! I plan to make 10 plushes to go on #etsy on July 17th! If you had any particular favorites that I posted over the last few weeks, let me know! #feltcraft#icecream#plush#sewing
