A little floral typewriter

fabric covered typewriter - drifter and the gypsy blog

I saw Cori‘s DIY fabric-covered typewriter on Instagram and thought it was way too cool not to share. She cut the fabric and glued it on the typewriter with acrylic gel medium. With all those little nooks and crannies to fill, it is quite the tedious DIY project (which is probably why I won’t be doing this DIY anytime soon…).

Cori made a postcard out of the typewriter which are available for purchase and you can read more about the process on Cori’s blog.

If you’ve been around the blogosphere a while, you’re probably familiar with Leah Reena Goren’s work and shop. Earlier this week she debuted her Fall/Winter 2014 scarf collection with a mighty lovely look book to accompany it. Captured by photographer Amber Byrne Mahoney, model Taylor LaShae looks absolutely angelic in these images. Pure magic.

Instamissimo

Speaking of Instagram, have you heard of Asia Pietrzyk‘s newest project, Instamissimo

Inspired by Instagram, Asia turns photos from her favorite ‘grammers into illustrated versions. What a neat idea! I love seeing Instagrams taking a new life in the form of illustrations! I also love how Asia uses photos from lesser-known Instagrammers as well so I can find new people to follow.

Grandma’s Brag Bag

I found this sitting in my computer archives and had to laugh. I thought these pictures would never see the light of day, but now they are just too good not to share.

Back when I was applying to SCAD, I entered their Challenge Scholarship Competition. I found out about the competition pretty late in the game and the photography challenge had already ended. Darn. The only challenge left (besides some sort of dress-sewing competition) was their accessories challenge. The accessories challenge was to design an innovative handbag that was functional in real life. I sure didn’t have enough time design and so sew a fancy dress (I only had 1 week until the deadline), so I chose to enter the handbag/accessories challenge. Being a nana at heart, of course I had to do something painfully nana-ish: Grandma’s Brag Bag.

For the grandmother who can’t talk enough about her grandkids, who needs to be toting around a wallet full of school pictures? This bag is sure to stir up conversation wherever she goes. The clear pockets make it easy for grandma to update photos as her grandkids grow. It also comes complete with detachable bag that can be used as a carry-all for when she babysits the kids for the day.

Some of the pictures are my own baby pictures (can you guess which ones they are?) and some of them are random pictures I found off the Internet haha (hello Google Images). If you see your picture here, do know it was used for an educational cause!

Unfortunately I didn’t win. But I still had fun making it. I’m waiting for the perfect grandma to give it to. My grandma (thankfully) isn’t like this haha!

Exactly one month from today I’m participating in The Lab Event runway show. Have you heard of The Lab Event? It’s a wedding vendor showcase taking place this year at the Ferry Building in San Francisco.

I’ll be modeling some of the designs in the runway show, so cue the butterflies! I’m actually really excited about being part of The Lab Event. Judging by the pretty crazy awesome job they did last year, I can’t wait to see what they do this year.

Maybe I’ll see you there!

I think that goes without saying, which is why I love this print by Luciana. It is now happily sitting in my office, next to my computer, where I blog ♥
