Me-Made-March 2011

Posted by PicasaThe first week of Me-Made-March 2011 proved easier than I had expected.  In order:

Cotton/acrylic cardigan knitted from a Vogue Knitting pattern by Norah Gaughan a few years ago - looked perfectly corporate over black trousers and a white shirt.

Glass brooch made by me a couple of years ago at a workshop where we learned how to slump glass in a microwave!  Worn with a dark grey pinstriped pinafore, white shirt and black leggings.

My wonderful denim jacket with the Entre Chien et Loup bead embroidery that I designed for my Graduate Exhibition three years ago.  It looked quite respectable over a cream top and black trousers.

A beaded brooch on a Carla Zampatti denim blazer I picked up in an op shop a few years ago (the jacket, that is - I made the brooch).  Bad photo, no time to take a better one!  Worn on Casual Friday so with black jeans and a floral top, and orange shoes!

Originally white top that I embellished with blue buttons all around the neckline.  The first time I wore it, I stained it indelibly with orange juice and dyed it this lovely Pacific blue.  The mottled effect is intentional.  Worn with black jeans.

One of my textile ragged crazy patchwork brooches, worn with a T shirt and shorts (at home!)

A long cotton skirt I made years ago, worn with a neat white blouse and ballet flats to look vaguely corporate for work.

I'm looking forward to the next week!!
