mr.madeItSo was lucky enough to have a chance to visit sweden recently. i’ve hinted pretty heavily that if you travel anywhere and want to buy me something, you can’t go wrong with fibre (yarn or fabric) from that area.
before returning home, he visited a marimekko store in stockholm. marimekko is a finnish clothing and textile store. he may have had a little guidance from a certain ninja (if you’re reading this, thank you!) and purchased some very cool designer fabric for me.
i have a few ideas for what i want to make with it, but i thought i’d ask all the creative minds out there…
what would you make with 1.5 metres (just under 5 feet) of this fabric? there is a penny on the fabric above, for scale. keep in mind that the print is directional. it is a buttery soft oilcloth, so it has some water repellant qualities as well.
what do you see this becoming? garment, accessory, home decor? what would you make? links to other projects you may have made are welcome :-)© imadeitso, 2010.
