My wearable art coat, The Temptation of Eve, was on display in Chicago, at the Columbia College Spring/Summer Exhibition from April-September, 2015.  This was a juried show.

 

Eve is based on a Botticelli painting and was custom-printed on fabric for me.  

The back is very 3-Dimensional and textural.  This coat was also seen in Threads Magazine.

You can find my fabulous iron caddy tutorial that I did for Kona Bay's Fabric Vine Magazine on my blog -

HERE, under "Tutorials".  It's a great way to carry your hot or cold iron to sewing groups or classes,

and the caddy unfolds into a handy litle ironing mat!
