I finally finished the Shark in the Park storysack!
I made the game quite a while ago (and posted about that), – but I had to sew hair on the Timothy Pope doll and make him some clothes, which was a fiddley job.
The other characters were scanned from the book and made into ‘lollystick puppets’.
Luckily I had some shark print fabric in my cupboard, which is just perfect for this Storysack!
Making No7 ochre aprons with red ties, today, because Etsy shop has sold out. Measuring from the curved edge for the pen pocket is time consuming…so I made a template to align with the edge and drop the little pocket into…very pleased with that!
I went to the Hockney exhibition at Tate Britain on Monday! – A riot of colour on very large canvasses, I also loved the drawing, but actually his most recent ipad work was the most fascinating…. I’d also forgotten how amazing ‘A Bigger Splash’ is in real life!
I bought this book at the Tate because I’m very interested in artist sketchbooks.
Started a new 2017 notebook, lovely brown paper, looks great with black and white ink! – 3 days of ‘hard thinking’ and writing about ‘Aprons for Makers’, design and craft – which I condensed to use in updated ‘About’ sections Etsy/Folksy, website, Linkedin. Drawing little pictures makes it easier to look back at what I’ve written and remember it….
