Spring became summer, and finally the SWANclothing Floral Lasso totes are... like a floral frankenstein.
17 July 2010
Remember this? Still in Toronto, the Floral Lasso totes were only a few stitches in. Now back on the west coast, I finally made time to finish them. I love the fabrics so much, it took me a while to source them out. I love the wooden swan charms I had made for them too. More on those later.
The last work in progress shots taken at my second cousin’s place while I waited for my new apartment, mixed in with some really pretty photos of her growing up …
My cousin in amazing mary janes. I’ll post this big on Flickr.
Whipstitching on the handles… like a floral frankenstein. It makes me nuts in a good way doing stuff like this. Just the idea of embroidery thread matching or complimenting a fabric, and making something in such a basic and really functional way. Love it.

A lot of whip stitching. Which I enjoy doing. I did some simple embroidery too.

Edit and here is that sweet but really sad scene with the girl and the flower, from the 1931 Frankenstein film.
