DIY: Henna Inspired Weights
Sometimes the best DIYs are born from problems I encounter in the design studio while I’m flinging fabric scraps at 3AM. Here’s one project that was born when I was struggling to weigh down the corners of my pattern paper, while drafting patterns for Bombay Mermaid.
I found a few lovely, smooth-surfaced rocks while strolling in the East Village and applied some puff paint in (an attempted) henna motif. The blue glitter didn’t really deliver, but I love the other two! Check out the simple process below.
Of course, these can also be part of your bedside altar or placed on your desk at work to remind you to stay creative, but these are perfect paper weights for pattern makers.
Stay tuned for more DIY action next monday.
