A Mid Summer Nights dream

I donated supplies to this play I am not costuming it or anything like that.  But it will be fun to go and watch and see how it differers from the one I did costume.  This one all I did is donate 3 large black garbage bags full of fabric to help with the set and costumes or where ever they needed it.  My middle daughter who played mustard seed last time is not in this play but she did help embellish some of the set pieces ( a big tree I think) and she helped paint the signs for the show that are placed all over town.

The Importance of Being Earnest

 Some costumes I have made for other productions are being used in this production of The Importance of Being Earnest.  Always fun to costumes get a second life in another production.

The Wizard of Oz Revisited

Current project is that I am a stitcher for this production of the Wizard of Oz.  Yes I am working on that play for a second time in less than one year.  I am not the designer or the lead costumer... I am a stitcher... and I am having fun being such  will probably be a dresser too during the run of the show.  I have done some French wire bead-work recently I will post pictures in the near future.

Stippling a Jean Jacket

detail of rose 
My middle daughter found this jean jacket thrift shopping and really liked it but she wanted to embellish it yesterday.  So she drew a rose on it and started to sort of cross hatch it and I commented that it would look better if she stippled it so yes her response was pretty much I do not stipple well so can you help me. 
lots more to go
Which translates into mom will you do that part for me.  So she is drawing the rose and leaves and thorn vines (still in the works) on to the jacket with pencil.

  Then I get the fun of coloring it in with millions of little dots of permanent ink.  I have a card board (cake board) inside the jacket for rigidity while drawing and to keep the over inking from going to the front side of the jacket.  I usually do this type of thing on paper but it is fun to do on fabric as the colors bleed and blend better.

Stipple always sort of has a look of a tattoo about it to me.  I guess that makes since since tattoos are basically stipple drawings on peoples bodies.  But I prefer this much more over a tattoo less permanent.   Funny to me as I did use permanent sharpie markers to color this in.   I will heat set it before it gets washed or worn.  Because of the over inking I am worried it may still run but I doubt it. 

This will probably have bead-work before we are done with it to add depth to it and more colors.
