'A' is for A

This is what happens when you cross a Transformers geek with a fabric geek. ^_^

I've been obsessively collecting fabrics and quilting and doing other related textile work since forever (seemingly). Lately, I've been playing around with Transformers-inspired designs - some with fairly literal design details, some that are a little more interpretative. I plan to start posting current and past projects here, as well as posting photos of works in progress in my scraps. Mostly, I tend to make a lot of quilted scarves with pieced fronts backed in panné crushed velvet, but I also make pillows and other assorted fabric objects.

I’m currently attempting to transition from making these just for myself and as gifts to selling them - ***UPDATE*** the shop is up now! If you're interested in owning your very own one-of-a-kind Transformers scarf, stop by Damn Skippy! Designs on Etsy, and check it out.

I’m new to posting things on DA, and I’m *shyshyshy*, and attempting to sell these has me *nervousnervousnervous*. While I’ve sold my stuff before, it’s been awhile, and I haven’t tried to sell any of the Transformers-related pieces, so I don’t even really have a good idea of whether there’s people out there who’d be interested in them.

Thanks for looking at my page; feel free to let me know what you think, I’m very curious to find out~!
*pokes head out of hole* Hi there~ I'm so fragging happy to have some time to get back on the internets and check in here more often and such. Finally.

The dogs and the herd of little plastic mechs and the sewing machine and I have successfully moved (more or less) several states up and over! :iconryagelle: was getting a new place anyway, so she took us in while she was at it. (I'm a perfect housemate, natch, but the dogs and mechs are totally inconsiderate and get all over the furniture. XD)

She's finishing up her business degree, and – epic yay - we're partnering on the Damn Skippy! etsy store now! Specifically, I'm still doing the sewing-y, fabric-y, quilting-y part, and she's helping with the aspects of running a business that I'm not so great at. So, pretty much all the actual business parts of running a business. *brickd*

We're running our afts off right now because we're working to prep the store to open in time for Botcon. I can't be there myself, but if you're going, keep an eye out for :iconmmouse15: and :iconnkfloofiepoof:. They'll both be sporting their scarves for part of the weekend, and they'll both have some of my new moo minicards to hand out. Greenangel from over at Livejournal will be there too, with the Blaster quilted postcard I made her to cheer her up last year, and she'll have minicards too.

We're still pretty busy with the process of settling in, so I haven't had much time (or space) to sew scarves or other large items yet, so it's the perfect chance to make some fabric postcards, which I love making and have wanted to offer in the shop for a long time now. They actually go through the mail, like a regular postcard (or you can send them in an envelope. Or just keep them for yourself and look at it. ^_^') I used to make them all the time, and I've been having a blast doing these.

The store is still in Vacation Mode on etsy as of right now, but we're shooting to have it open again by tomorrow night (Thursday, June 2), featuring some of the new cards.

…now that I've said that, I can't wimp out, can I? *panics* *gets back to sewing*

...Because I'm a nerd, I drew myself wearing my Soundwave scarf in my latest ID here --> [link]

....There was no possible way I could do it justice in such a piddly little drawing, though :">

Love your work! they're really neat, sort of like some of the TF themed jewellery I see on here, but so much more customizable and less vague~ not that I don't enjoy some of the interpretive designs, but if I hadn't been told I wouldn't know that some were inspired by anything...


Anyway! I REALLY LIKE THEM. yep.
That's it. :iconblushingplz:
