Handmade Monday - art v craft v design

My head is full of many ideas at the moment, and I had fully intended to get on with some of them yesterday afternoon. However the teacher's recurring nightmare appeared - bad throat. and with it a sore head. So I spent yesterday afternoon watching Holes with the Kids (great film and book), and eating far too much.

I have some fashion design items going through my head at the moment. My Friend Jess is getting married next year and I'm doing her bridesmaid dresses, We spent Friday looking at fabric and dress styles, so I'm thinking about how I will construct them and doing a bit of research into the best type of boning to use in the bodice of an empire line dress. One of the fabric shops allowed us into their store room - loads of vintage fabrics from all sorts of companies!

I have the prints I started last Wednesday to complete.

And I promised to revamp Bethan's shoes. She had some "high heels", about one inch high, for a party earlier in the year. they were a pale pink satinised fabric, and are trashed, but still she loves them. so we are going to make them Funky high heels. - this didn't get done, and this week is shaping up to be hectic with extra time at work, I'm not sure when all the things I have started will get finished. Anyway, here's the prints so far...

Pop over to Handmade Monday and see what everyone else has been up to.
