Collection of fashion in the shop.

putting together a collection of garments in the studio always excites me.  With only one of a kind items, size and shape of each piece becomes even more important.  

Of course color is my number one go to when organizing anything!

got FINGERS?

When I first began knitting I didn't know how to use needles.  To be honest, I still only know two stitches! 

 

I like to collect different colors too!

I was blessed with finding a large selection of yarn in a thrift store approx 15 years ago. Since then I have developed my talents in color blending yarns.

Alone color can be so different than when blended together.  Swirling in my fingers I use a simple braiding stitch to make a chain.  With chains combined a scarf can be formed.

Over the past few years I have made more than 100 scarves!   I have also been blessed wil more and more yarn!!

Decided to make a simple dress with matching belt.

I took my fave t-shirt for a pattern and just made it longer.    Two side seams and two shoulder seams. Total time 21 min..... But who's counting ;) 

A self belt..... Great as a headband too!

Sometimes making a fast fashion piece reminds me of why I do the things I do!!
