We’re making hoods for the Mystery Jets this week. Blaine and Kapil have their own ideas that we’ll keep a mystery for now… but we’re to send 3 of our choice. Any suggestions? :) Tweet us @merrimaking M and H x
bangers&fash tonight in Manchester!
Our friends Bangers&Fash and taking their catwalk-cross-club-night to Manchester, and they’re taking some of our hoods with them. Details here. The last one in Nottingham was brilliant, get down if you can. Headliners: STAR SLINGER FNORD (Late of the Pier)
I forget the artists name (found this online a while ago). I wanna guess at Erwin Wurm, but whoever they are, it’s truely good and it needed to be shared! Hope good days have been spent in the sun, we spent a good chunk of it in what we call “the sun trap” celebrating Emma’s birthday :) ( (Emma’s the newest seamstress, and she’s great!) M x
Pitta bread, cereal, 2 bears, 1 fox and some fruit...

TRAFFIC LIGHTS IN BERLIN
We mentioned that we went to Berlin last month - this was quite possibly the best sight we saw. It’s enough that such a thing as traffic lights for bicycles exist… but then add a marker pen to the mix…
The Street Rat is the next hood-of-the-month, fastened with a toggle and made from my favourite fabric to date (which is fitting because I’m most fond of real life little rats too). We bought the last roll, so we’ll sew until it runs out! Street Rats are £30 (+£3 p&p). Pre-order through the website here M x
Next lomo walk: Berlin Lomography Store, 26th...
(We got a glimpse yesterday of some of the photos that were taken at the Lomography walks in London last month. They’re brilliant. If you took any, keep them coming! email@example.com)
