A few weeks I had a go at making a mood board in Autumn colours. I grabbed a few favourite items from around the house – with a Vintage theme. As the background I used a vintage botanical style butterfly print I bought at a print shop on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy (one of my favourite places in Melbourne to shop).
I layered over fabrics that I hope sew garments with this spring summer.
My TAA vintage leather handbag from the 50’s fair, one of my 3 strand necklaces – 60’s costume jewellery – I seem to have a knack of finding these – and they are not popular in the greens and brown autumn colours that I am lucky enough to be able to wear.
I took a couple of snaps – rearranged – had a play – this ended up being about the most fun 15 minutes of my whole life!
Australian Home Journals are great for vintage inspiration – haven’t tried to use one of their plain paper patterns yet!
I definitely intend to work like this again as a design jumping off point – Why not try it? Especially if you have lost your “Sewing Mojo”!!
I wonder if it could help me with more inspired cooking!!
