On the Make

I have been making stuff and dreaming of making stuff all kinds of stuff.  My followers may remember the Urban fabric I designed using photos from my trip to NYC earlier this summer (see post https://lisathorpeartist.wordpress.com/2013/07/16/).  But I’ve been making more stuff.  Here’s my latest.

This fabric fun inspired me to design a San Francisco fabric.  Having lived in SF for over 10 years the images of spiral metal gates and stone work from Golden Gate park are near and dear to my heart.  So here is a knit top I made with the featured fabric.

Now that I’m on this I just can’t stop.  I created a photo montage fabric of old barn wood that I have just ordered to be printed and can’t wait to get my hands on it to sew up.  I also was commissioned to create a photo montage fabric of a camp in upstate New York, the fabric includes wonderful old signs, worn door handles, window frames and more…. I’ll keep you posted on what comes next!
