At my Frida inspired creations. Yes, you read that right. Creations!
These made use of two pattern books that I have in my library, one of which was used for the first time!
That’s all for now :0)
I mostly wanted to post on leap day. Cause I am lame, haha.
For putting up with me, I will leave you these links to my pinboards, where new and awesome stuff has been filed away for the future.
Look at what the Sew Weekly theme for next week is!!Creations inspired by ART!!! And, for me, ART!!!=Frida!!
I’ve been perusing these books for inspiration. They are providing a bit too much, I think.
I am bursting with ideas! I’ve had to check any number of wild plans and have thrice stopped myself from ordering some heavily embroidered fabric or brocade that is not my style. I love Frida, but I don’t think I want to dress exactly like her. And I KNOW I don’t want to sew things that I will not wear.
The key word here is inspired by her art. But with Frida, she is her art! Literally! How can I separate Frida the woman from her paintings?? They are one in the same.
The Lady Herself:
And some interpretations of her style

I’m not so jazzed about the Pantone challenge, if it means I have to use that tangerine color. I don’t care for orange…. I have never seen even one episode of Mad Men, but I have, of course, read tons about its style. I have the perfect pattern and fabric for that one. Let’s hope the mojo is there, too.
