Sewing A Story.

These were the first things I made whilst at Uni that I actually really liked and were the beginning of me basing my work around films. I apologise for the poor quality of the images, it's pretty difficult to scan/photograph these. For those of you don't recognise them the films they are taken from, they are Fight Club, Sweeney Todd & The Notebook, quite a strange mix really! If you are interested in how they were made, basically I printed out the film stills (sourced online) and cut around where the people were and lightly penciled in the figures. I then scanned them and printed them onto that paper that you can use to iron designs onto fabric (the name escapes me). Once I had transferred them to the fabric I hand-stitched the people back in, and added the text which is a quote from each film typed out on a typewriter. I also did these which are machine stitched. I'm not sure why I've decided to share them today but I hope that you enjoy looking at them.

I'd love to be able to commit to one photography post, one style post, one DIY post and one movie post each week. The DIY posts are definitely where I'll let myself down on that though, I never seem to find enough time for them. I have what seems like an endless supply of photographs that I can post,  I'm always saving pictures of clothing that catches my eye and I'm always watching movies and dying to discuss them. So, maybe I'll just aim for those three for now and post DIY's/other random things, like this, as they come along.
