a couple of things-
a nice interview with me here at Hand/Eye.
Meet-up this Wednesday at Starbucks in Davis Sq., Somerville, MA. Starts about 10 am.
And, I made 2 more fish. I wanted to try the pattern in cotton fabrics- this one has repro barkcloth for its body, a corduroy head and the fins and tails are made from cotton knits.
This one is made from quilt type fabrics- all woven cottons.
I’ve gotten started on organizing the pattern and I want to make it as accessible to as many people as possible. I am trying the design out in cotton because it it so much more available then wool. And, some people find the thickness and stretchiness of the recycled wool to be a challenge to work with. Is there anything else I should be exploring? If you were going to make a fish, what would you want to make it out of?
Cotton vs wool-
The pile is getting big!
