Biting the ParrotPosted: August 27, 2009
The Markus Lupfer collection of seqinned jumpers at Toppers had me swooning as soon as I clapped eyes on it. I like all the designs in the range but I have a special love for the parrot piece and could not rest until I created something similar.
I scoured Ebay looking for a similar motif….
…….bought a plain black tee from H&M and bish bash bosh-
Well no. There was no bish bash boshing at all as it took me me almost two and a half finger prickin’ hours to sew this bee-arch onto the tee, and I also added some turn ups while I was at it and stitched them down. Admittedly I was watching The Reaping on TV at the same time so was a little distracted by the swarming locusts and satanic villagers which is partially why it took so long. Having to stitch every leaf down would have taken me ages anyhow even without pausing every few minutes to look at Idris- hunk o love- Elba.
