paint the town

custom work

I’ve just added five new fabrics to the swatch gallery, fancy fabrics perfect for your holiday party-going. I’ve got pure silk with a fleur di lys pattern (above left – in gold, too!), black cotton with an over-sized metallic silver damask print (above right), and two vintage kimonos that are dying to become your next […]

dull t-shirt refashioned into femme cardigan

fabric

The fabric fairy has recently blessed me with an unusual windfall: more ribbon, zippers, trim and other notions than I know what to do with. Included in the stash was bolts and bolts of vintage lace trim…everything from sweet little eyelet lace, to elastic lace for lingerie, to hand crocheted trim probably originally intended for […]

stash boosting

custom work

…which is the opposite of stash busting, of course. I don’t even pretend to do that anymore. These two black and white abstract prints are from Ikea, and the awning-style stripes below are vintage. Bright, aren’t they? Anyway these are the latest additions to the fabric gallery. All of these are heavier-weight cotton canvas, perfect […]

book review: Design Your Own Tees

I spent part of my Saturday in Adams Morgan at the seventh annual Crafty Bastards art & craft fair. This year was the first time in years that I’ve been in town and not vending at another craft fair, so I was excited to hang out and absorb the craftiness. There were a number of […]

fabric

The 2010 fall collection is finally here! It’s something completely new for me and for Holland Cox, and I had a lot of fun (and lost a lot of sleep) putting it together. My goal was to see if I could ease up on my dependency on bold, wild patterns, and instead express my love […]

new fabric!

coming soon

I’m sure you’re shocked to hear this, but I’ve been fabric shopping. I could claim to be stocking up for the winter, but I think we all know that I gather fabric for my stash year-round. Like a squirrel hoarding nuts! These are just a few of the quilting-weight cottons I’ve added to the gallery, […]

inspiration strikes

coming soon

I have been a busy bee lately. Although the Vagina Monologues production took up a lot of my head-space and energy, in the background and in the in-between times, I was still thinking about and working on my sewing. My spring collection, the potential spring craft show schedule (applying, rejoicing in acceptances, mourning rejections, et […]

dressed up denim

fabric

Sometimes people ask me why I don’t make my handbags out of leather. That they are cute enough style-wise, but would be so much more sophisticated if they were in leather. I tend to just blink at these people and smile and tell them that I like pattern too much to give up fabric (which […]
