Father and son t-shirts and a road trip to Lappland
I made matching t-shirts for my son and my husband. Also a lot of chat about our recent road trip to Lappland, featuring reindeer!
My first e-textile: A hoodie with LED lights
For some time I have been thinking of adding electronics into garments.. Last summer I took an e-textile course and this hoodie was a direct result of it.
