Patternmash - Vuvalini

September's Patternmash brief was another interesting one, Vuvalini...

The name of the project comes from The Vuvalini of Many Mothers (a tribe of all female Wastelanders from the recent Mad Max film - which I'm afraid I haven't seen). The theme is about heritage and nostalgia at the same time as having to manage with what you have - so I took this as mending, remaking and altering worn fabrics and embellishing to make things beautiful where they may be falling apart.

I drew up quite a few patterns but was only really satisfied with the three which I submitted...

I worked with scanned drawings, pieces of crochet and photographs to create multi layered effects with safety pins and can openers as motifs.

I'm fairly pleased with the result and I like the effect I created with the scattered safety pins.
