Yessss! This was a fun one. The new and promising team, TRES LECHES, commissioned me to make them a custom flag/banner to wave around at their cyclocross races this season. The whole process was fun and I learned a lot! From brainstorming the design in their home (while getting sidetracked to discuss the philosophy of onions, veganism, and the anarchist book fairs) to actually putting this physical project together, I am really happy with the finished product.
This flag is mainly constructed of recycled fibers felt, and it's embellished with other odd ends of recycled cotton/mixed fabrics. There is also cotton yarn acting as the icing bulbs, and sequins because what kind of tres leches cake doesn't have flying and glimmering cinnamon coming off of it!?
The back side is just as detailed, with more fabric piecing and embroidery to tie into the front design. The team put a lot of design work and fun energy into this flag. Make sure to keep your eye on them and support, because I think TRES LECHES is the team that Orange County has been lacking; a group that is supportive of the community and finally brining PUNX and BIKES back together for the better. <3
