Bicycles are always an appealing theme. Lots of us not only have fond childhood memories that include bikes...but also current lifestyles that are enhanced by a pedal around the neighborhood. I have been enjoying working my Red Bike Fabric in some creative ways. By piecing it together and adding some black linen, I designed a fun WALL COLLAGE in various size panels (stapled to wood stretcher bars) and added old bike parts as accents. APRON and can't resist playing with other design ideas with fabric.
SHIRT DESIGN: I worked with my #109 Nuevo Shirt Pattern as a base and adding a striped linen to the bike fabric. The black snaptape, stitched down in strips, work well as the closures on the front and tabs on the sleeves.
The Red Bike panel, printed on a cotton/linen canvas, comes in the shape of an apron (ready to cut out and sew up)....I love using my The CANVAS MARKET BAG: was made from fabric printed in my studio in the Art Center. People visiting the studio enjoy jumping in various themes (in this case, your favorite bike). It is a chance for me to share working with fabric pens and fabrics.
I'm taking a break from the sewing machine, pumping up my tires and getting
ready for a morning ride around town.
Enjoy your day! Diane
