At the end of every production cycle, there’s bound to be a bunch of fabric scraps leftover. Because part of my design philosophy is to create less waste, I find this part challenging. I’m always looking for ways to use the scrap fabric. I’ve come up with a few good options – like cutting strategically so the remainder is big enough to use for accessories – but the hunt is always on for crafty ways to use the extra bits.  For this DIY, I’ve used scraps left over from my Shibori Tie Dye Collection.  The variations in tone create a beautiful variegated look.

The act of crafting is always entertaining, however the most satisfying DIY projects to me are the ones that are cute AND functional.

Another stop off during our adventure around Vancouver Island was this beautiful and dramatic logged area. As we made our way across from Port Renfrew to meet with the owners of be Solely Canadian in Courtenay, it became apparent that Google Maps hadn’t taken into consideration the condition of the roads (very winding), or the speed at which one must travel due to all the sharp, sudden turns and single-lane bridges. Though we were running behind, I couldn’t resist stopping to take some photos at this picturesque location.
