In this project, I have explored the possibilities of a concept that offers sewing patterns and tutorials for making children’s clothes and costume-like accessories, and a community to share the joy of making. The motivation to do this comes from children’s imaginative play, and the importance of this in fostering creativity from a young age. It also comes from wanting to forward the knowledge of sewing, and how this can help us live more sustainable, and see the value of our clothes. The imaginary creature “Selopander” is the world’s fastest animal. It can also be invisible or chose to live under water from time to time. At least, according to my oldest son, who is my inspiration.
