This year, I have been fascinated by pushing the boundaries of fabric weaving, trying to help bring an age old tradition into a modern-day aesthetic. One weave that garnered significant attention along my journey was this Optical Illusion Weave, so I officially made a pattern to share with the world. This pattern is for an 18" x 18" panel to be used as you see fit. The structure of the weave lends itself to pillows, bags, and mini quilts, but I have even used weaves in apparel. I look forward to seeing your creations with this Optical Illusion Weave. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY buy fabric SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 18" x 18" panel

Howdy! Howdy! This is Mathew Boudreaux (AKA Mister Domestic), presently residing in the Pacific Northwest with my husband Aurelian, our 3-year-old daughter Helena, and two cats Jordan & Camden. I am originally from Houston, TX and have managed to live all over the country during my adult life, but finally settled down and call Camas, Washington home. During the day, I work in the pharmaceutical industry specializing in oncology, but am an artist by heart and have jokingly referred to myself as an artistic gypsy flowing from theater to modeling to photography to sewing. I had learned to sew as a kid, but never really got into it until we had our daughter. I thought it would be a great way to connect with her if I could make her cool clothes. Almost 40, I felt that my taste-level had arrived and that I could make some pretty neat-o digs, if only I could figure out how to do it. Before Helena could even crawl, my husband bought me a couple sewing classes at Modern Domestic in Portland, which was the perfect jumpstart that I needed because I haven’t stopped since.
