Hey hey, yo yo, it’s another Fifth Friday and so it’s another Festival of Fabulousness!
Today is full of win!
Later on you will be able to win a copy of DIY Couture: Create Your Own Fashion Collection!
Even later on you’ll be able to win a copy of The Complete Guide to Customising Your Clothes: Techniques and Tutorials for Personalising Your Wardrobe!
And we’ve got a review of Tilleke Schwarz‘s latest book!
But for now, let’s crack on and open the doors on the latest swap over at our Flickr group, the Phat Quarter!
Without further ado, here’s Cocoaeyes with the skinny on what’s going down.
The theme of the newest Phat Quarter Swap is… The 1970s!
So much glorious imagery to harvest for this swap. Think of the pop culture, politics, fashion and design elements of that decade. In music alone, everything from classic rock to Funk to Disco to Punk.
Imagine a gold medallion buried in a Tom Sellick-level hairy check (done in turkey stitch, perhaps?) Or a needle-felted, wood-paneled station wagon. Or a sewn replica of an anti-war poster… The creative possibilities boggle the mind!
Interested in playing? Be sure to stop by the Phat Quarter group on flickr and sign up for the swap. Sign-ups start today and continue until 11:59pm GMT on 7/1/12. More details in the flickr group. Your Swap Organizer for this event is Olisa (cocoaeyes). It’s going to be Dy-No-Mite!
