The brief for this project was to create a cup or tray with a sewing theme, and once I started drawing I decided to create a whole line of punny sewing trays for the home decor market that would be suitable for a women’s sewing room or office. I really enjoy puns and wanted to put a playful theme on these so they’d be fun to have around the house. First I hand-drew some pencil sketches and made notes about puns related to the sewing theme. Then I chose the ones I liked the best and inked elements onto paper, scanned them in, and then vectorized and colorized them on the computer. This project was a lot of fun and I would love to have these become a physical product because they would make me smile to use in my office!
