[The jacket, above,is what she's going to be working on.You can work on anything, or you can just follow along and get ideas.]Here's what Melanie says about this fabulous project: So what is Rockstar Boro, anyway? And do you have to be a rock star to join in? Rockstar because I am going to stitch a velvet wrap that I can see Janis Joplin wanting to wear when it is finished. I also think the name will help me push the project well past the humble definition of boro and make it mag pie sparkly. You don't have to be a rockstar to join, but you might like to embrace that part of you that has swagger, funk and the ability to belt 'it' out. If someone wants to participate, what do they need to do? Is there a fee? This is a sew along; my hope is that folks will come and check out my blog, comment, and join the Flickr group so that there is a central place to see what everyone is doing. This is not fee based, nor will it be instruction as much as commentary on process. I will link to the commenters work and try to draw them into the fun as much as possible. I will discuss what I am doing, some of the how of the approach and I will be looking for inspiration outside of my normal paths. I may embroider graffiti, I will photograph inspiration in my daily travels, I will highlight links like the Johnny Was that you turned me onto. On a very basic level, I want to get back into blogging and think this is a fun project to do it with that has an easy and approachable appeal for my readership.
