Pompom Envy

I have put together a short craft session for you.

I love winter for its knitted hats. However, I am never really fully committed to a pompom but I like the option. I have crafted a way to  easily attach one with no commitment. 

This is my preferred method of pompom making. Two cardboard circles, but I add a piece of fabric in between to sew through for extra volume and sturdiness. At the end just loosely sew on a button. You need enough space to attach it to your hat.
Then just button it to any knit. I attached mine to the top of my grey hat I knitted last winter. You can easily just put it on the side, front, middle, multiple ones. Switch hats, switch pompoms. 

Below is a commissioned Holiday Card. Best Wishes through the holidays!

All at once.

The Himmelfahrtkommando Trailer is up! So excited for it to be in theaters. Again working with the cast and crew so much fun (I was the costume designer) and I am glad we can finally see on screen.

I participated in TBWA's Advent Calendar, where every day until Christmas a new picture is posted in their windows. For every like on facebook they will donate 1 CHF to Pro Juventute (A non profit helping young kids)  See full info in German:
"Diesen Dezember verwandeln wir unsere Agentur in einen grossen Adventskalender. Jeden Abend wird mit dem Eindunkeln ein Fenster enthüllt, das Menschen aus der Streetart-, Grafik-, Fotografie- und Kulturszene mit einem ihrer Werke verschönert haben. Für jedes „like“, das die einzelnen Bilder auf unserer Facebookseite erhalten, spenden wir im Namen des entsprechenden Künstlers CHF 1.– an Pro Juventute*.

Wir wünschen eine frohe Weihnachtszeit."

Count Down

Once the advent calendar is up it seems all you can do is count down to something. Chirstmas, New years... Himmelfahrtskommando Trailer!

This Friday the movie that I worked on, along with a large group of talented people, trailer is premiering. It has been over a year in the making. Months of preparation, a month of shooting(short and intense by full feature film standards) and many many people giving their time, blood and effort to make it. All this week teaser poster will be posted on their Facebook page. So friend up, because I am super excited.
The Postman's hat

Selling this one on Etsy 
could make a good gift.

Desk view

Around 10:30 is when my desk is at its prime. Well worked over from the day. Usually when it gets dark in the evening I start pulling out all the drawers and all the boxes. 

I have developed some new busy projects,brainless television accompaniment. Mainly knitting herringbone things and embroidering scrap fabric which I turn into gift tags. Can you give a gift tag as a gift?

Lastly, a weather update. Fog over Lake Zurich from Chirstoph's Studio.

Super Old

I have forgotten to post about things for a while, so I put together some things I missed.

Super Sweet
I did some web banners for SuperSweet a while back. They work together with different artists and sell some funny things and cute clothes.

I worked together with Chirstoph Gabathuler for a short web spot for Interhome. I designed all the birds and environments.
