I struggle to find nice PJ pants for my boys, so I made them myself. The print is Processing art generated with a recording of the boys winding down to go to sleep.
I ordered the custom printed organic cotton knit from Spoonflower, where you can now buy a couple of my designs, too.
This one in particular is quite 70′s-ish and not my favorite, but I really love the concept. Making them was a breeze, from cutting to finished product in 20 minutes. Also, my first time using a twin needle. Who needs a serger?
I wanted to make something for Damiano’s preschool teachers who are super nice and have a ton of patience and always make me wonder how on earth can anyone do that job. I didn’t have much time, but I also want Damiano to grow up capable of showing appreciation, because there’s nothing I hate more than children who are selfish entitled little shits. So here’s to my attempt to make him learn that saying thank you is important.
Ingredients for 6 notebooks:
6 illustrations from Mexican loteria boards.
6 pieces of heavy cardstock: I used some remnants of Enrico and Elena ‘s wedding invitations, 250gr/sqm card. They were handy because already straight.
6 sheets of colored construction paper. I used IKEA’s, but something even heavier would have been better.
12×6 pages from old notebooks. I dismembered the old notebooks from my previous life as an aspiring economist.
I put the cardboard on the sheets of paper and sewed them together in the middle, like this:
Then I cut out the excess paper:
Then I folded them along the stitch, and then made a dust jacket out of the colored construction paper.
And I fixed it to the cover with one of my moo stickers. A touch of fucking class.
Then I cut out a loteria board. I would have loved to glue la muerte or la calavera or el diablo, but I don’t know that everyone shares my sense of humor.
