Candy Jacket by Shane York!

Shane in her Candy Jacket My lovely friend Shane recently whipped up this beautiful version of candy girl from our Tattooed Ladies Pattern. Shane is having an art show at her favorite local tattoo shop and decided to sew up some jackets with giant tattooed ladies on them for the show! If you have the pattern already, you know how giant these ladies really are, so imagine filling it in with baby stitches and then making it into a jacket!? She even added additional embroidery on the sleeve that is remarkable up close, looking at it is making me want CANDY! Close up Gretel Sweet Tooth on Candy Jacket Candy Jacket side view Sweet
Shane constantly blows my mind with what she creates and accomplishes. I've never met anyone with so much passion for something and dedication to finish huge projects. She spends all of her spare time working on projects that she loves and won't stop until they are all finished! Shane in her Candy Jacket
I can't wait to see this jacket along with the two others hanging in the tattoo shop in all of their glory! If you're interested in coming to the show and you live in the Bay Area, I can share the details of the show :) You go Shane! Shane and I xoxo Katy

Ya know, these are the perfect embroidered gifts for my friends. Especially the single bachelors who wouldn't mind showing this off.
