I keep a constant list of inspiration and as something strikes me, I’ll write it down so I don’t forget. It’s always exciting to cross something off the list. Getting to see the end result is pretty awesome too!
I finally got my sewing machine out and figured out how to construct these fabric kites…turned out pretty cute! Draw out the outline of a kite on 2 pieces of fabric and sew them right sides together. Then I left an opening for the dowels, which I cut slightly larger than each side, so they would fit in nice and snug. After I inserted them through the opening, I hand-stitched it close. I attached a grosgrain ribbon and bits of fabric tied every few inches. I photoshopped this part out, but I also attached a piece of embroidery floss to the other end, which my assistant is holding on to. Making it look like the kites are flying!
This was such a fun project…I’m so glad to have Jillian and her friend Lyndsay as models for my kite inspiration!
Makes me excited for Spring!
