Dickies Bag Patch update

Here is the design I came up with for a jumbo patch to go on my refurbished Dickies shoulder bag (only $6 from the thrift store). I have been continuing in the theme of using layers of felt in a mola art style cutaway pattern. I am considering the method I would like to use for adhering it, as the contouring is going to be really labor-intensive… Perhaps machine stitching? I am at a bit of a loss because my sewing machine had developed technical issues, but I may be able to use a friend’s loaner. Stay tuned…

 


Latest Consignment

My piece for the Portland Love Show this year generated a request for a custom consignment by an admirer… What I developed was this. It is an exploration into traditional mola art techniques (layering and cutaway/reverse applique’ techniques) in felt. Fun to make!
