i needed to cover up some embroidered letters on this sweatshirt, so i copied the microcosm publishing chainring heart design and printed this patch:
and that got me started making more patches. voluntary human extinction movement—may we live long and die out!:
instead of wrapping presents in disposable wrap, this year for christmas i sewed a reusable bag for each gift. it’s a good thing i started in october because it took forever—not only did i make the bags but a lot of the gifts themselves were handmade, so it took months to finish everything. i ended up putting together roughly 50-60 bags, mostly out of brocades. then i used scrap yarn to tie most of them, and printed little wallet-sized photos to use as tags. the gifts pictured here are only the ones i gave my parents and grandma—i wish i’d gotten a picture of all the bags together, it would’ve been huge.
