This week guest author Emma Jeffery from the blog Hello Beautiful visits to show us how she used cloud photos to create a one of a kind shirt for her outdoorsy, science-loving husband.
I enjoy making things for my loved ones, but I often feel underwhelmed by the sewing potential for making things for my husband. To be frank, he’s one of those people who doesn’t even need much; give him a bike, some tunes he likes and a decent pair of flip flops, and he’s pretty satisfied with life.
But that doesn’t mean he should be able to sneak, undetected, beneath my sewing radar. It just means I have to think more creatively when it comes to ideas for making things I know he’ll love.
He’s an outdoors type of man who likes stargazing, weather reports and well….science. Whilst it may be a little lost on me, I was happy to spend a sunny afternoon during a recent vacation, taking photos of passing clouds, to make into a one-of-a-kind fabric design that I sewed up into a shirt for him.
