DIY: Textile stamping

16 Aug

I was inspired by this blog post by my friend Lisa to do some veggie stamping on textiles. I chose the good old potato stamp variety. For this, all you need are potatoes, cookie cutters, some fabric (in the form of a bag, in my case) and textile colours (mine are from Rayher DecoArt).

At first I wanted to try a lot of different shapes but then I stuck to the stars. Maybe next time I’ll use a heart.

How do you like my new bag? Textile printing with potatoes is easy and fun. And you can make very individual gifts.

Fans should help Fans

18 Mar

I guess you all have heard about it now, but there’ll be a Veronica Mars movie due to a huge successful kickstarter campaign. That’s great news and shows how powerful a fanbase can be.

Now, I don’t know if you’ve heard of the British television drama series ‘The Hour’, starring Ben Wishaw (Q from Skyfall), Dominic West and Romola Garai. It’s often been compared to Mad Men but it’s different and very charming in its own way. It’s been cancelled a few weeks ago, leaving fans to deal with a huge cliffhanger after the 2nd season. I guess every TV show fan can imagine how that feels. And that’s why I ask you for help. Please help this fandom, even if you’re not in it. All we want is closure.

There’ll be a Twitter trending attempt on Saturday, from 9 PM GMT on. Do the following: Tweet @BBCpress, @BBCTwoUK, @KudosTV (producers) or @BBCAmerica and use the hashtag #savethehour.
Could you do that for me? Could you do that for everyone in this fandom who is disappointed and sad? Please, Fandoms should help each other. Tweeting about it once doesn’t take more than a few seconds. You can even just copy the following tweet:

@BBCpress @BBCTwoUK @KudosTV @BBCAmerica Please give us a third season of The Hour #savethehour

Or simply retweet some other’s tweet about it. Please help us save The Hour.
