Pattern used in Youtube video How to Sew- Easy DIY Eye Mask (3 Ways!)
#miymarch18 day 16: Fur ball. This is my sewing helper and Alchimisti's official fur ball, pictured here doing what loves the most: judging ny makes and thinking...why would you spend your time making things when you can be giving me attention instead? His name is Bagheera and I adopted him 2 years ago. Before him I always considered myself to be a dog person. Now I definitely am a proud cat lady 😻 He is funny and loving. He always comes running to greet me at the door when I arrive and sleeps using my legs as his pillow every night 💕 Isn't he cute? #marchmeetthemaker @joannehawker @thatwendyward @dressmakerssocial
#marchmeetthemaker day 15: Boomerang. Today I am wearing one of my favorite makes of all time! My bomber jacket made with fabric from Cusco, Peru, and contrasting quilted sleeves. 💕 I used the @mccallpatterncompany pattern #mccalls7100
and the fabric for the sleeves is from @joann_stores 😎 Styled it with a pin from the one and only @riflepaperco #miymarch18
#marchmeetthemaker day 13: work clothes. Today I am rocking a me made outfit 😎 Handmade marsala faux suede button up skirt and new handmade black long sleeve with ruffle (because the obsession is still going strong), black tights and @drmartensofficial 💕 #miymarch18 When your clothes look like work wear but feel like lounge wear 😊

Finished carving my first mandala linoleum print. Isn't it precious?! Carving was much more fun and relaxing then I anticipated, but the small details were quite challenging🙈 I can finally print my mandalas everywhere!! T-shirts coming soon 👕 Now it's time to relax and enjoy the rest of this rainy Saturday. #miymarch18 #marchmeetthemaker 🇧🇷 Adorei fazer minha primeira gravura de uma das minhas mandalas! Agora está no hora de testar 🤞😊

"I don't believe in an outside agent that creates the world, then walks away. But I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body. And it is that intelligence that, I wouldn't say created the universe. It is creating the universe. It's an ongoing process." Eckhart Tolle
#marchmeetthemaker Day 3: How you started. I have always felt that I connect to my emotions better through art. The term "artist" can have a lot of negative connotations attached to it. The idea that an artist as someone who is looking for fame or attention. Or the idea of the struggling artist being the kind noble of artist. But all I know is that for me art has always been my way to connect to the world that surrounds me. It puts me out of my confort zone and allows me to help and inspire others. Art for me has always been a stress reliever, a moving meditation, a way of life. I have danced, acted, drawn, photographed, directed, produced and sewn my dreams and feelings for a long time.... and have no plans on stopping it 😊
#marchmeetthemaker Day 2: Where ✂ This is my little sewing corner where all my designs are sewn 💕 I love the pegboard since it is both pratical and cute. To decorate I hanged some of my art (two mandalas and one Ganesh painting). #miymarch18 There is no denying that my sewing space is rainbow inspired, specially my handmade chair that I love so much 😊
Hi everyone 🙋
I am joining in two challenges this month! (will do my best can't promise I'll post every single day 🤣) #meetthemakermarch
My name is Flavia and I am from Brazil, now living in Los Angeles. I am a maker of slow fashion, sewing pattern and Youtube sewing tutorials 😊 I also hand draw mandalas and recently got into block printing (I'm trying to find ways to incorporate my mandalas into the clothes that I design). During the day I work as a sales rep for an amazing Brazilian textile company (@kalimo_usa) selling wholesale fabrics in downtown LA 💕
#miymarch18 My color palette goes from basic solids like this grey rib knit I used for the dress to really colorful prints!! I am lucky enough to be surrounded by the most stunning prints ever all day at work (swipe to see the second pic) 😎
Let's be kinder to ourselves today 💕

"The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished." Ming-Dao Den

"You are perfect. To think anything less is as pointless as a river thinking that it’s got too many curves or that it moves too slowly or that its rapids are too rapid. Says who? You’re on a journey with no defined beginning, middle or end. There are no wrong twists and turns. There is just being. And your job is to be as you as you can be. This is why you’re here."
