Jenbug has another steampunk home craft. She's embroidered curtains with gears. I assume this is based on Tinkergirl's cog embroidery how-to.
I like the combination of rough, natural fabric and the rusty color of the cogs.
I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.
Yup, it was totally Tinkergirl's article on embroidery that got me going. I forgot to credit her in that blog post.
