a free form pattern child's toy that's a weird combination of a frog and a mudskipper (Frank or Fripper?)
Shayle was asked to do it for a friend's niece and the Sanctuary has the materials and supplies to help it happen, most of them donated.
Shayla also makes fun, unique skirts...she has her own aesthetic and is very articulate in fabric (and words!).

This shirt's sleeve was patched in the recyCouture class, with scraps left over from an earlier patch job on this Ralph Lauren shirt. Clare liked the idea of the skeletons -a bit of our inside structure peeping through; she says it amuses her (me too!)

Todays email ad from NM.
I worked in the sunglasses department at the St. Louis Neiman's. I was told to send thank you notes to customers.....dudes came back into the store thinking i was making advances; just great.. so i refuzed (z is intentional!).
It appears to be another round of being at odds....reinventng for fast fashion is like biodiesal...the results are not greater than the resources and energy used to create it.
