In observance of Fun-A-Day, here are my most recent projects:
January 23: another attempt at the same hat, this time in black
January 24: A (hopefully) final fix to the ages-old keyhole disaster
January 25: Stage one of hoodie-from-scratch
January 26: Stage two of hoodie-from-scratch (the body was from polyester fabric, and the hood from an old cotton t-shirt)
January 27: Paisley polyester thrift store gem– tailored at the torso and the sleeves
January 28: The rise of the cords has been slightly lowered, and the thighs have been slimmed
January 29: Sweater hole– fixed!
JANUARY 9: Sewing machines need clothes too. Cover made from a combination of plaid one dollar fabric from the San Leandro Thrift Town, and green that I found on Folsom street under the freeway.
January 10:An obvious problem, and a quick solution
January 11: hat made from sweatpants fabric– modeled after a preexisting mass-produced hat
January 12: Busted jeans preserved for a while longer
January 13: The knee of January 10th’s jeans– darned.
January first means that this is day one of Fun-A-Day.
I have been doing a lot of sewing and alterations since classes let out in the middle of last month– for this year’s annual project, I’ll be doing one sewing/alteration a day. This will range from patching holes, sewing things from raw materials, to re-purposing old garments and fabrics. I will document it all with photos, many or all of which I will post on this blog. the final product for the show will be on paper.
