With 2016 it’s an opportunity to carry on with my beloved, sustainable venture “reusing the blues” developing my design in quilting and denim. I’m working on a new bag design at the moment hoping always to improve the quality of the little things like attachments to give it more of a professional look. “Reusing the Blues” will be selling at The Docks Market in the Titanic quarters on the:
Old favourites like the wrist pouches and photo printed pillows will be available as well. There will be new designs with the introduction of recycled leather, thanks to a friend who donated an old leather coat. I’m accepting old leather now as well as old denim.
I enjoy sewing back and forward to replicate my own technique when I’m drawing on paper. My mark making is sketchy which allows me to transfer any feelings that I want to express in my work. It’s a way explain sadness, happiness, anger in a concept that I want to develope. Then through the quilting I get extra texture and form. Past quilting I used coloured thread as a feature. This time my thread is going to blend in with the denim and the texture from the quilting is going to be the feature.
