Out of the city, missing all the F1 noise and people (kind of a bummer) instead I'm helping my sister show a few of her alpacas at an agricultural show.
While she fleece stewards in the morning, I'll mostly entertain myself taking photos- wood cutters, classic cars... and although particularly crass, I wish there were monster trucks there, but no such luck.

Photos to come.

a quick bonnet experiment. I had an idea for a pattern, and wanted to see if it's work.

yeti bib

A quick prototype of one of the BLS sketches.
THe nipples are just sewn fabric, but would be cast latex in the future

It's a play on a tuxedo styled bib.
Materials: white cotton fabric for bib and nipples, black stretch poly for the waist tie, grosgrain ribbon and brown suri fleece (from Grace Jones)
