What I'm Working On..

There are various things that are in the works. I'll be announcing a few Cochenille things soon, but I thought I would share with you what I have been doing as a wrap-up of my sabbatical.

I have been working on the creation of patterns of ethnic of garments or accessory items from around the world. These will be presented in a Student Handbook which will be used in my Ethnic Costume class this coming semester.

Here you will see the pattern for a Child's Hat from the Mien Yao tribe in Asia. I purchased the original hat in Thailand. It has now been measured, sketched and a pattern pulled.

There will be 25 patterns in total by the time I am done. It's a lot of work, but I am enjoying it.

These hats are really cool. I absolutely want to try out these patterns.
