To be a vintage fan, you have to be a bit of a nostalgic person. I started buying vintage clothes mostly because of the cheap prices, but over the years it just seemed ridiculous to buy new shit clothes made by huge companies who only care about profit.
I could never imagine reading Rin Tanaka ’s books ten years ago, that I would be replicating antique designs no longer used nowadays. See, Us embroiderers, are like the painters of fabric art. Some create original work, some only recreate existing work.
It s a thin line sometimes between your creativity and someone else’s, so in order to stay « original » I mostly go towards what makes me feel the « fun » side of things. There are some garments that I will just never be able to own (or afford) and thats precisely why I make certain clothes sometimes. This Workshop Blouse is a good example. I saw Ryan Grossman (@3gknuck) wearing one in his Born Free Video, and thought it looked so cool.

Here’s my own take, and it s about to get greasy.

The name of this tool@l is “l’indispensable” which translates by “absolute necessary”
It s basically a brass blade holder, supposed to be sharpen regularly, and used very often of course
I drew and added the scroll engraving

Long story short, here is my first motorcycle « scroll » engraving. These are such a classic amongst motorcycle customs that i had this in mind for a lonnng time. Like @indigoashby says write a page a day for a year and you have a book. I wrote these two pages in order to explain the process of this « simple » machine. Of course it s not perfect, neither are the aluminium welds on the cover, but this bike is a blank canvas, and a rolling artform and none of this is willing to be perfect anymore, just done one day bit by bit.
Scroll through the pictures to see the different elements, i sourced the info from forums and for 100€ i have this pneumatic engraving machine.
The rolling stand is a plus.

This is why riding these old bikes is called a #shakedown
