“Persephone”

I was inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone’s abduction.

This costume is made up of four pieces: Bodice, cloak, skirt and boot (not pictured). All nuno felted. On the back of the cloak I felted the Japanese character for ‘spring’.

Materials used: Hand dyed silk organza, silk gauze and silk chiffon. Commercially dyed corridale fibre, natural alpaca, silk fibre, rayon yarn and jade beads.

theme thursday: unique canvas bags and totes

oaxaca tote in earth by scoutandcatalogue

on thursdays, we do themes ;) and this theme thursday will focus on three radical canvas bag finds, starting with this ‘earth’-hued hand-dyed bag from longtime EFOTD fave scoutandcatalogue. i love the multicolored ‘pastel earth-tone rainbow’ look of this organic pattern, inspired by oaxacan textiles.
