Wearable Art Fashion Show in Salida, CO
I have finally finished all four of the entries for the show. Tomorrow I deliver the items
and wait to see if the committee likes them or not. Here they are. thoughts?
1. Fall Fire. Hand Wove and Hand Painted extra long shawl. 50% Angora, 30% Merino, and 20% Mohair. the Merino and Mohair was from my own herd.
2. Fairbanks Shawl and Hat. This was my second attempt at a vision of something that I wanted in my closet. It was more or less what I wanted except it needed to be another 1-2 feet longer for my height so I am back to the drawing board waiting for the bunnies to grow me more French Angora Wool.
3. Felted Vest and Matching Bag. This was originally supposed to be a lacy vest that draped but I forgot to put the lace pattern in and felted it when I was trying to full it. So it became something entirely different. I dyed this with Greener Shades Dyes as well as the Fall Fire.
4. Bits and Bobs. This is currently hanging in the ArtPrize show in Grand Rapids, MI. I will get it back just days before the fashion show. It will be nice to see it on a model and moving instead of just on the mannie.
These are the four entries for the show. I do hope they will have them. What do you think of them? leave me a comment and tell me your thoughts.
