Studio Melt

these are the new things i have been making for the last few weeks and months...

the two in the foreground are new arrivals at Studio Melt, they are mini pouffs for small children...they also go by the name 'zafu' which is a yoga seat.
the larger one sitting in the bottom shelf is a regular sized pouff.

each one is unique and made from rescued fabric off-cuts. 
they are also stuffed with more fabric off-cuts, so the bigger ones can be heavy!
Trish from wanderlust is my fabric supplier, she creates bags of fabric scraps every day with her womens wear label. 

thanks to Ange from Stuio Melt for taking this pic and posting it here on her store's Facebook page.

another dead bird

i have had a few post in the past about dead birds.
it was impossible to not stop to photograph this one...looking so much like it was sleeping! almost outside Good Brother cafe on Watt street.

i will get some new pics up here very soon of the things i have been making recently...
the maker of wanderlust clothing has been supplying me with all her mountains of off-cuts! honestly, i have had to make a storage space for the bags of fabric in our tiny apartment. i don't have enough sewing hours in my week to deal with it all quickly.
when i do have time i am making things that can be stuffed with small, otherwise landfill, fabric scraps.

new crochet hand grips

these are my new bicycle handlebar grips.
the bike frame is yellow and i never liked the standard black hand grips...
so first i took a stanley knife to them to cut away the upright round rubber section...
and then i tried out some crochet.
