New Patches

Prepare your wallets for patches galore! 8 new slices of iron-on goodness available now at Mokuyobi.com. Some of them will be making a further debut on Spring '15 products so stay tuned! 

This first patch image was definitely my favorite to make. I love working with the multiply feature in illustrator and I wanted to translate it to embroidery with an abstract image. It was a bit tricky to pick the colors of the overlapping sections but I think it came out really great. It will be featured on a solid hat with a coordinating color club abstract pattern lining for spring launching in February 2015

Spring/Summer 2015 Print Preview

Yee haw! Ain't nothing like some new printy patterns to get the product waterfalls flowing. Particularly pumped about this round because no reason at all. I just like to make things. If being a minimalist is a thing then being a maximalist definitely is. Go big or home and get swallowed alive by all of your belongings. #worthit Also featuring an artist collab with the talented Rand Renfrow- some amazing work from this guy, keep an eye on him!

Tanzania Trip

I took a safari trip with my family to Tanzania! Aside from all of the itchy bug bites and getting stung by a super stealthy bee/wasp it was a good time. I rented a 400mm lens for my Canon t2i camera to use on the trip since the animals won't come super close to you even if you say please. It didn't come with a protective case so I made one: tan nylon with yellow nylon lining, a coral strap, and a teal zipper padded with 1/2" foam all around. Still have no idea what I'll use it for since I returned the lens.





We saw tons of animals and colorful birds. Some animals we saw were impala, warthogs, wildebeests, giraffes, hippos, zebras, crocodiles, dik diks, lions, monkeys, a leopard, a rhino, elephants, hyenas, and more! Here are some highlights of the trip photos:
