So my blog lost all of its formatting a while ago and I couldn't figure out how to fix it.
In the meantime, I moved my tutorials over to Instructables. The format is much easier to read than it is here on the blog and it's better for getting in all the details. You can find the making of the Jazzy Peacock Scooter from beginning to end. There are 16 Instructables, starting with making the "eye" of each peacock feather and ending with assembling the entire sculpture.
This work started out as a Jazzy Mobility Scooter found abandoned at the side of the road. It was quilted piece by piece out of reused textiles, trims, and bits of old clothing. The full work took 9 months to create.
Thanks for being patient while I fuddle around with technology!

I re*make mobility devices and materials and give them new lives. Sometimes I staple drape.
