I’m in San Francisco now and I have several pieces that I never had time to post in all the rush of the last week. I will post them over the next few days. Of course if you’d like to see them in person, I am at the San Francisco Renegade Craft Market at Fort Mason this weekend, July 21 and 22.

The first fabrics I chose looked great all laid out together on the table. I made the vest and the jacket and put them on my fox fellow and it turned out that the fabrics weren’t working together AT ALL. That vest will wait for another customer. I cut out a new vest. I was turning it right-side-out and ripped through the paisley fabric (it is vintage and fragile in places). I tried fixing it 3 times instead of just starting over. I didn’t have enough of the fabric I was using with the paisley to cut out another side. I kept making all kinds of crazy mistakes. I think my brain left for vacation a few days early. Anyway, I eventually gave up on the 2nd color combination and cut out this new vest with some wonderful Heather Ross fabric. Just so you know, it doesn’t always go smoothly no matter how long you’ve been doing it.
