Makeshift Society is a super rad co-working space in Brooklyn that just launched after their successful Kickstarter. They have a super neat San Francisco based space too! I was asked to make a pattern for some pillows to go in their space. After working with them on finalizing the design it was printed by Spoonflower on their new faux suede fabric and I sewed it into 4 colorfully coordinating zippered pillowcases!
Here's an older work in progress version:
The printed fabric:
The pillows at Makeshift! I'm matching the minty pillow as usual.
Peekaboo! Go see them in Brooklyn at 55 Hope Street
Whoa! I make a lot of hats. Lots of custom ones too. Here are some hats I've made in the past forever including a blue linen hat with a camera crew patch instead of a neon mountains one. It was tricky business because I had to shift the seam of the front panel a bit to make the patch fit. Then all of that seam shifting got me thinking about going crazy with the seam shift and including some color block action.
I also made a crazy color blocked hat for my very good friend who picked the colors for it and the hat turned out totally 90s! (in the best way) So good. And last but not least a super cool lady sent me some Power Rangers fabric and I made her a mighty morphin' 5 panel. Peep those photos!
I had the amazing opportunity to have a booth and sell my wares at Storefront's Los Angeles launch party. It was a great event and so many people came out. It was so fun to get such amazing feedback and love from the west coast. And the neon camp bag made it's debut at the show! (see previous post) Check out the photos from the event!
Also the talented and handsome Mowgli twins stopped by and were amazingly helpful as usual.
There was a two thumbs up theme that night apparently.
Introducing the amazing Neon Camp Bag! It's been a long time coming for this beauty. Finally here, made in the USA! Perfect for weekend trips, camping, carry-on, gym bag, picnic tote, obvious conversation piece, and more! Check it out!
Paper cut art is a technique I keep coming back to. It's very detail oriented and can be difficult when cutting out tiny shapes and not to mention the glue & sticky fingers! But it's always very rewarding in the end and totally fun to conquer. I made this little paper cut house as a thank you to a very cool Cali mom I met recently.
In the past months I've been working with Harlem Biospace, a new biotech incubator in NYC that offers affordable shared lab space and a community for biotech start ups. I designed patches for their HypotheKids K-5 summer camp program launching in July which aims to highlight different science and engineering disciplines through hands-on experiments. You can read more about the program here. One patch will be given to the campers for each of the 8 weeks of the program, each pertaining to a different science theme. I also made a patch for their Hk Maker Lab, a six week summer science program for teens in NYC. I think they all came out pretty awesome, take a look!
