commission: a little mending…

I recently finished this commissioned work for a client.  This is the second custom piece I have created for her, and I always enjoy them.  She had seen this work, and loved the color scheme.  The theme was sewing–elegant and feminine, with some vintage/retro elements.  I enjoy sewing as well, which made this work super fun for me.  I’ve also collected some interesting ephemera over the years which worked perfect in this work, including the vintage scissors, and the retro pattern pieces.
