Onward, into our last 3 days of sewing for the Prepare for the Playa Street Fair in SFO.
Our friend Lauren gave us a big old canvas tarp that has got a waxed finish and 40 years of character.  We are using it to make vests and pouches.  This one features patches from David Dragonboy Sutherland’s ink drawings, and pockets from a duck hunting coat found at the Chester Thrift.

One week to our big show of the year in SFO and we are on a roll now.
Here are some more belt pouches using Dragonboy’s art and our industrial textile collage.
These are sized for a 40oz water bottle.  Smaller pouches hold an Iphone or other large phone, or a wallet, keys, lighter, and chapstick.
Materials include printed art canvas, printed cotton canvas, denim, fire hose, printed nylon mesh, jobsite mesh, leather, and repurposed camo shirts.
