When I was very young my mother taught me all of the basics of making clothes. By the time I was 4 I was very adept at threading her sewing machine and making button holes with it. I still remember the smell of her sewing machine oil and to this day it is one of my favorite scents. She also taught me how to knit and crochet. Those are the skills I followed through with, mostly because it was easier for me to acquire the tools needed to create all kinds of things. Most recently, I have made myself skirts to ride in the colder seasons.
In the knit category, we have my brown "tweed' skirt. It has little bits of orange and metallic silver in it.
In the crochet corner, I just finished a twirly skirt. It is made with a bamboo and wool blend yarn. Bamboo bikes, bamboo skirts.... I sense a theme.
Now, I just need to knit myself a bike. Heck, they make bamboo yarn, so why not?
