Jess Does GRIDLOCK

As soon as I saw that Tessuti had a little fabric competition, I knew I had to give it a go!

All you had to do was create a garment using the GRIDLOCK fabric.

Gridlock Fabric

The fabric was on sale for this comp, so I purchased it, along with some Liberty Tana Lawn – Pointillism Red. I love mixing patterns with patterns.

I decided to combine two of my favourite dress styles to sew- using the top half from one and the skirt from the other.

And here is the final product! I am really happy with how it turned out!

More Cushion for the pushin….

After my exhibition I have had lots of my fabric left over. If I had time I could make a whole dress collection!!

The quirky fabrics are all a part of my ALPHABETISM collection! Each letter of the Alphabet has a matching graphic…

Since November last year I have been creating Cushions using my fabrics. I think they really work because they are bright and crazy prints, but in cushion size, they are enough to highlight a room. I have also been giving them to people as unique handmade gifts!

A is for Aeroplane

E is for Engine

V is for Vacuum and L is for Light

G is for Gnome

Z is for Zombie

P is for Peacock

B is Babushka

And finally… not a part of the previous fabric collection… a fabric that I designed for Christmas…

Wouldn’t you love one of these in your lounge room to add some colour?
