A is for ACNE

Life after college is great, mostly because I finally have time to do more personal projects. For my summer project I thought I'd combine my love of illustration and buying things I can't afford with a designer alphabet. 26 letters and 26 of my favorite designers in 26 illustrations. First up, A is for Acne, featuring their famous shearling leather jacket and star boots.

I'm completely in love with the simplicity of  Emmanuel Polanco's Lolita book cover so I thought I'd reinterpret it in felt and embroidery.

Tools of the Trade

New embroidered piece!  I've been really inspired by motorcycle gang jacket patches lately, so here's my illustration gang patch.

DIY: Olympia Le Tan Denim Jacket

I love everything Olympia Le Tan related and when I stumbled upon this felt patch denim jacket I knew I had to give it a try. I used a similar lettering and felt application except I embroidered the details using a chain stitch similar to the third image of OLT's jackets above. All it took was some simple craft felt and embroidery floss. Enjoy!
