Yeh it’s finally MONDAY but none of the banks, local, state or federal gov’t offices are open . . . WTF . . . gotta get that THREE day weekend . . . workin’ for the week end.
I’m back in the “shop” with more containers and a BIG “shopping” full of denim . . . even more pants waiting to be deconstructed . . . HOLY CRAP . . .
. . . got a pile of pockets and some other stuff . . . like large pieces of fabric with paper tags that have scribbled notes like – “vest- back” and “back – 39 inches” etc. etc. under there somewhere . . .
Got some pics of two pairs of Levi’s . . . one with the side seams ripped and the pieces laid in place . . .
. . . the other pair awaiting the “demo” man . . .
Here are a couple of “process” photos . . .
. . . Layout of patchwork design . . . white chalk is used to trace around the various pieces, marking their locations . . . the individual shapes are also assigned an identifying number or letter for location reference.
Two of the larger pieces have already been stitched on, another piece has been “basted” in place with pins and is waiting for JUKI interface . . .
Tomorrow will be spent doing an inventory, separating the “pieces” from the stitched patchwork panels . . . uh . . . this is beginning to feel like WORK . . .
