zebra stripes

zebra, originally uploaded by robayre.

Inspired by a zebra from a wrapper of Hammermill copy paper I started making a collaged zipper pouch. I scanned the zebra and replicated him to make the above collage and printed it on iron-on transfer. I have been using a, much loved, Boygirlparty zipper pouch for years and it is just frays and tatters now.

You can see the progress of the pouch at my flickr here http://www.flickr.com/photos/robayre/2734662368/. I still need to add the zipper tonight, so I’ll be heading over to JoAnn fabrics after work. I’ll wash it and see how it stands up, and hopefully if it works I’ll be making a bunch more. For years I’ve been wanting to do collagework on fabric, but in my mind I wanted to make a skirt. It wasn’t until I knew I needed a new zipper pouch, that I thought of the idea of doing it on fabric to sew into a zipper pouch. I wanted it to look like my style of collage that I did for my mail art postcards, thus the “Place Stamp Here” indicia that have been on all of my postcards.
Speaking of recreating collagework in other mediums, here is some lovely artwork.
a link on how to easily grow wheatgrass, something bunnies, kitties and girls alike can enjoy.

If there is one thing to know about me I am obsessed with front porches, so naturally porch swings fall under that category. I am easily gushing over this picture of a porch swing installed into a home.
