inspiration wallpocket



I have long been an admirer of Sally's work. She's a most talented crafter (and super mom), and when I first saw her wallpockets (more here) I knew I'd have to make one someday. I just needed something to act as my inspiration board, so I ended up with a mixture of wallpocket and rick rack memo board. I used a couple of the fabrics and trims I got in S. Paulo, plus a tiny piece of the cutest fabric I got from Mariko (photos of that swap coming soon), cream rick rack and simple linen for the background. I didn't do the patchwork effect (was feeling too lazy), but instead just two strips of fabrics and trims combination.

Up on the board right now are some of the beautiful illustrations by Ricardo, Elo, Ashley G. and Rachel Solomon. The origami fabric keychain and hairpin are by Isabel, the origami paper rose by Marta and the gorgeous gift tag and collage in the center is by Dawbis (which just arrived yesterday, by the way - thanks Dawn ! - so it's staying up here until I have it framed)

Que lindo. É como se fosse um painel de tendências com as coisas que mais nos inspiram e nos prazenteiam e que no todo contam uma história.
