Wikipedia describes Steampunk as a genre influenced by, and often adopted from, the style of the 19th-century scientific romances of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and Mary Shelley. We added our own elements to give our Steampunk office vignette an industrial flare.
Hexagons are “in” now, so I designed a block in the CutWork software that makes a small grandmother’s flower garden flower in just two pieces. When it is embroidered you can’t tell it’s not made from individual hexagons like a traditional block!
My Owlivia Slouch Bag in Through the Needle ONLINE #15 uses all of the DesignWorks components plus embroidery. I have to admit that CrystalWork used is quickly becoming a favorite of mine – it’s quick and easy and I think every project needs just a little sparkle to make it pop. Don’t you?
Our final BRENINA Sewing Celebrity is Tula Pink! She describes herself as having a dark sense of humor buried in a sea of print and patterns, playing with images the way a poet plays with words and turning innocuous traditional designs into mischievous little critters.
As Sewing Celebrity Amanda Murphy of Amanda Murphy Designs has been exploring with her BERNINA 780 E, she has created some of the most beautiful projects. Amanda has even put together videos for each project using her Medallion, Harlequin and Fizz patterns. Enjoy!
