Summer Night Inspirations: BLACK & WHITE

ORGANZA SCARF- A gossamar scarf is a perfect accent on any summer outfit. This black and white organza one does the trick. This printed fabric just needed some hand stitching to give finish to my quick, raw-edge design. Jacquard Fabric Pens are perfect for drawing your own scribble design on organza and they come in a set of 3 sizes. The less you do, the more important all the elements are to a design. The threads I used for hand stitching, although subtle,  have a bit of sheen and contrast with the matte finish fabric surface.

They say there are fewer places all the time to see a truly dark sky. Warm summer nights get us out to enjoy the magic of our night skies. 

It was just such a night that inspired this new journal cover in black and white canvas highlighted with Miles Frode's Star Chart Stencil Design.
There are 2 sizes of journal covers in my Creative Companion Pattern

Journal covers  are great in canvas, with or without a zipper compartment for your pencil stash,  for travel or an evening in the backyard with the stars....how can you be without one?



This one, in white and black canvas, was stenciled with the Star Chart Stencil in silver, Jacquard Fabric paint on the outside and black on the inside. An accent trim was topstitched on the surface and a length sewn in the center for a bookmark. A small set of wood colored pencils and papers may be perfect as you wait for the moon.
What will you carry in your new journal cover?

Making transition fabric-
Starting is just that....there doesn't need to be a project in mind to enjoy the process of starting.
Making fabric can be very satisfying-whether you spend several days...or 15 minutes.
Create your own new fabric of mixed textures & weights-

As the last months of summer unfold here in Oregon, my simple summer wardrobe and projects will carry me into fall and deeper, richer colors.....and more River Tunics!

I hope you are enjoying your summer/fall sewing too, Diane
