Check out this post over on love forever. She has picked up the latest issue of Selvedge and posted these beautiful photos from a spread on the women’s clothing of Salvador, Bahia in Brazil. Definitely makes me want to see the rest of the images. (photographs by Fedor Van der Valk)
A little about Selvedge from their website…
“Open a copy of Selvedge and you sense there is a philosophy that Selvedge readers subscribe to. A belief system based on a cerebral and sensual addiction to textiles in all forms. Readers share a belief in the importance of their material surroundings and a passion for the beautiful and beautifully made.
Our aim is simple: to provide a textile publication which fits seamlessly into their creative lifestyle. Directed towards an international, discerning audience, Selvedge covers fine textiles in every context: fine art, interiors, fashion, travel and shopping.”

Etsy has teamed up with Instructables for this Sew Useful contest. So you know that Etsy is all about supplying a marketplace for the independent artist and crafter, and Instructables is a community created to share the how-to’s for useful projects. I love how Instructables encourages the sharing of finds and ideas. I mean, that’s what blogging is all about, right? Anyway, combining these two ideas, you get the ultimate way to support the handmade community. And there’s prizes…

And they’re working with one laptop per child. So check out the contest!

so many oblique references to bags, chinese cafes, cojoined twins, onesies. who's running this blog anyways? nazi prolifers? so disappointed in free people. maybe you should change your brand name to reflect your views more accurately

My attention has recently been captured by jotterblog, a paper/stationary/craft blog written by one of our avid fp blog fans. As I am new to their site, I went back and checked out the archives, and found a post on these awesome paper dresses.

I’m also loving their love of chickens. Guess what. Chicken Butt. Check out the chicken entries here and here.

new crafts, new blogs

The first few images for the travel swap are posted! Check out the details on our flickr page.
Also, on the flickr page, I recommend checking out all of the messages left in our “introductions” stream. Find it under “discuss” or “discussions”. Practically all of the swappers participating have listed their blogs, websites, or myspaces. Lots of new blogs and artists out there to be discovered. So get to it!

style will save us

I really love this digital mag style will save us, and they love “all things super-stylish, organic, ethical, eco-friendly, vintage, recycled and sustainable.” In the current issue, they did an article on re-worked vintage and featured the “post-vintage” work of fashion and art collective Andrea Crews (pictured above). Check out the article here

I spotted these on coolhunting and had to share. Someecards (or Some Ecards) are for “when you care enough to hit send”. I posted some of the cards that are just sarcastic enough for a smile, but check out the site. There are some that are just so ridiculous you will laugh out loud. I can’t imagine ever sending some of these, but they make their site that more entertaining.

I love these cards. Now I have something to commemorate all life's awkward events.

I was browsing through this week’s issue of Time Out New York, when I spotted the word “Etsy” under the “recently opened” section. It seems Etsy, our fav DIY web merchant, has opened up their warehouse, or the Etsy Lab, for…
*Workshops on making things
*Advice & help with your Etsy shop
*Meeting other artists
*Getting out of your house
*Creative projects
*Community events
So if you live anywhere near Brooklyn, I would check it out!

cloth paper scissors

One of my favorite artist / bloggers, Anahata, is on this month’s cover of Cloth Paper Scissors! I picked up this magazine for the first time a few months ago, and it’s really great for artistic inspiration, especially collage ideas and techniques. I’ll definitely be buying this month’s issue to check out the feature on Anahata

She sent the above F & P tags to Free People as a little present, along with a bunch of other amazing paper goods she designed. Check out her goods and her blog too!

Ijlal -May 07, 2007, 10:39AM

the moldy doily

no good for me posted today about Kime Buzelli, an amazing artist and one of my favorite bloggers (check out The Moldy Doily). She makes it sound like she has way too much fun in her Echo Park hood in LA. And through The Moldy Doily today, I discovered the latest issue of Lula is out, and Kime contributed! I’ll be at the mag shop after work. I’ll be sure to share discoveries over the next few days…

(This is part of Kime’s work featured in Lula)
