Three day weekend in the shop – Playa Gear Stitchfest

Been on fire in the shop last three days.  We got into the ‘Prepare for the Playa’ pre-Burning Man craft fair in SF on July 25th, and I have been in high gear making inventory.  We are going to share a booth with my old friend from growing up in Westwood, Janay Growden, aka the Window Lady.  She makes amazing clothes out of Oakland, and I am thrilled to get a chance to do a show with her!

Here are toolbelts, an 8′ double-wrap belt made from fire hose and scraps for another project, and a cargo-pocket miniskirt made from an vintage hemp German Army duffel bag.

Toolbelts made from old Carhartts and an Army shirt that I bought in Topeka Kansas, the long belt, and the mini.

Kilt pockets to be.

Managed to get some work done on Michelle Wurlitzer’s custom bike panniers too – she needs them in a week.

Kargo Kilt.  Jeans and army shirt, with Carhartt, Camo, and ReStore jumpsuit fabric in the pockets.

Kargo Kilt pockets.  We found a Bernina Industrial sewing machine at a yard sale a month ago that does zig-zag, industrial style.  I like it lots.
