My Label

Hi there.  A graphic designer with three grown kids (24,21 and 19).  I live in Mexico City and starting a new business of stuffed animals and decorative pillows.  

I thought of doing a presentation card for this new business, or a label of some kind...  don't know what I will use it for.

Doing the intersection exercise I have this (graphic designer, like to sew and crocheting and I love colors and patterns and textures)

So I started to make lace out of plastic bags.  To try an experience new things and also recycle.  I came up with this textures.

Then I started sewing with the machine and then by hand to see what will happen.  I haven´t written anything yet.  My stuffed animals are all made by hand.  Cut, sewn and stuffed by hand.  The decorative pillows are machine ssewn only at the edge to secure the filling, but everthing else is done by hand.  Each piece takes around 4 to 12 hours to make, depending on the design.  I make the first designs.  I have around 4 to 5 people who help me sew the items.  These ladies work from home and get an income otherwise will not get.  They don't have cars or live in big cities.  They live 2 hours from my house.  The girl that helps me with the cleaning in my house lives there and goes every weekend, that's how we get things delivered.  

This is why I thought of sewing the card, by hand or by machine.
