Upcoming Sew Weekly Themes

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:

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.
