Ibland måste man ha en morot
eller som här körbärsblommor
för sitt lärande.

Jag hoppar jämfota ut i ett nytt syprojekt som kommer att sträcka sig över en längre tid.

Why give up?

When there is a new opportunity to start over
challenge your sewing skills.

Some one asked me if I would sew something for 2020 Foundations Revealed Contest? Yes, I just might do that. If you would like to read more about the 2020 theme, rules and browse the Mood boards click on the original sites links in the quote below. This is how the 2020 theme is presented on the website:

Mythologies and legends of rebirth and restoration abound across the world. From the phoenix rising from the ashes to the Goddess Flora heralding Spring, delve into the patterns, textures and stories of traditional sagas. The circular economy shows us a life cycle: rebirth of worn out things, given new life and purpose.

FR Contest 2020: Mood board ”Renewal”

Our Members chose this year’s theme from three possibilities that all reflect sustainability, recycling and upcycling. How can we textile artists be a part of the solution, rather than part of the problem, when it comes to waste and toxic practices? We encourage you to look at this theme in addition to Renewal as an extra source of ideas to incorporate into your entry this year. Natural dyes, recycled plastics, utilising fabric scraps – everyone can do something to be a creative part of the solution!
Additional mood board: ”Upcycling and Sustainability”

Plötslig händer det

Mama Santa handed in a red corset to my thrift store

Mitt framför näsan på mig låg en tomteröd polyester korsett strl xl med planchette fram, snörning bak och 0,5 mm plastfjädrar som räcker till att sträcka upp en halv korsettsida. Vilket fynd för 49 kronor! Jag var givetvis tvungen att prova korsetten på bara för att se hur det skulle se ut och kännas.

– Aj och ush så obekvämt med en icke figursytt korset.
Den här korsetten är bara att sprätta upp och återbruka de delar som inte luktar svett och parfym.

Lycka är att jag äntligen har en planchette eller busk som stängningen också kallas att övningssy med. Soft Wire mönstret är förvisso inte ritat för en planchette men vem vet jag kanske blir peppat till att rita upp ett annat mönster där fronten är anpassad till en sådan stängning.

New beginning

Well yes this is exactly what it looks like

It is a pile of crashed and rejected panels that for one reason or another fell victim for my inner critic that kept getting in my way when working on Soft Wire.

I never did get to the fun part with my contest entry mostly because I gravely underestimated how much time drafting a fitting pattern and working with limited amounts of fabric would take. You need both experience and a good plan to sew a project like mine. I admit I had none. I normally work with paper and with paper it is so much harder to undo or cover up a mistake. With fabric if you work with a forgiving fabric like I did well then you can make changes. Yes, I fell deep down into a seam ripping trap and time went swiftly by.

Now when I have all these lovely rejects and there is no deadline for the project, why not sew something on the contest theme architecture just to see what kind of wearable object I can sew from them. Let us set out on new journey exploring this new textile knowledge I gotten and put my pattern to use.

Igår tog jag en liten utflykt ned i fotoarkivets gömmor för att hitta bilder som kunde illustrera vad som inspirerade mig till att sy Soft Wire en korset sydd av en tunn vitt hellinnegardin med ojämna inslag.
