Knickerbunting: the Studio Shoot

Knicker Bunting bows colourful curly dotty flags kankan lacy layers minipants pantstopoverty pileofpants rows samnchristian thehanging thewholewall thursday tinypeoplepants

Huge thanks must go to… all the people who donated pants. The lady who sent some underwear FOR ART from Norway. The lovely lady who organised a work collection. The lady who sent pants after the project finished with £40 cash for a stretch of finished bunting (it’s late, but I’m sending it – I promise). And last but not least, for Christian from Under Your Skin for booking studio space, dusting off his pro lamps, best lens, and for running up and down ladders to help me hang all this damn stuff.

You’re all welcome to come round for cake at mine, any time

Another vintage knitting pattern

50p each from an antique warehouse in Burnley. How could I resist?

All I need now is someone who wants me to knit them one in silver-grey yarn so they can pretend to be a knight in chainmail.

Also, I must confess: they had a complete knitting machine with all the accessories and the instruction booklet for £30. I really don’t need a third one – but I could not resist.

Third time lucky – maybe I’ll actually make something with this one?!

Spooky Sparkly Silliness

My lovely boyfriend got me a resin casting kit for my birthday. Does he know me or what? This is what I made first.

Silver ghost I have lightly sanded to take the edge off the sparkle. The result is slightly subdued.

A chunky glitter with different sized pieces is extra reflective

Turquise glitter seems extra - sparkly. You can see the button and loop fastning in the background.
