Lots of show preparations for two full Men's and Women's Collections by Madam Chino again this year!!!
Madam Chino Women's Collections are always made with 100% recycled t-shirts building off of pre-existing forms in ever-creative ways
Tassel and POM EARRINGS in swing...
T-shirt yarn is fabulous!!! *please see my T-YARN YOU-TORIAL
These are crocheted with t'shirt yarn. I made a single chain necklace, draped armholes from them and then filled the rest in with more crochets, using the dress form to inform the number of stitches in a sort of free-style way.
Madam Chino's Men's Collections are always 100% Upcycled Plaid Flannels improving on weather-versatility and usability. This year Madam Chino makes 72 buttons out of a dowel, chopping, drilling, sanding and finishing them for the front of this years sporty draw-string hoodies complete with matching inner sleeve cuffs, brown elbow patches and fleece pockets
The hoodies have iron on elbow patches that I used once before for knees
and fleece-lined (upcycled snuggies) cuffs that match the hood fabrics
A picture of the men's collection in progress on the line.
