Cory U of CUExperiments

A Canadian traveler. Always searching for inspiring things. I like to make handmade experiments.

& can secretly be bribed with coffee... shhh!

Currently blogging about my adventures, hobbies & inspiring finds.

CUExperiments is a collective of experimental handmade projects I've personally designed & created. Each experiment is fabricated through the inspirations of everyday living.

Stitching up Fufu Bunny… & autographing other pieces tonight. Testing out some handmade labels on all my pieces this time round. 

Getting ready to post in the CUExperiments etsy shop soon!

After 40+ hours of work, it’s finally test day. Wearing my newest experiment sample piece & my proudest design as of yet!

The reality of my design process is that I really don’t know how anything will end up. A vague idea in my mind, I start to stitch away & create a shape that takes on a mind of its own. 

To start, I conceptualized this sweater in my mind as being longer & having full sleeves. The sweater had its own idea in mind. Long sleeves just wouldn’t come to be & the length stayed short. The only element I was certain from the start, was the colour concept. The rest stayed a surprise to even me!

Eventually, I’ll have one in CUExperiments the etsy shop. For now, I’m wearing a one of a kind piece!

What a whirlwind of a week! Lots of changes. Lots to adapt to. Lots to still figure out.

Today marks the completion of a detoxing med free week. My body sure as heck doesn’t know what to do with a clean system (but the creepy muscle twitching has stopped). It’s nice not having to treat the pain, but gosh it’s a struggle to not aggravate these silly joints.

Getting back to experimenting with a new headband & lounging in my purple Charlotte’s Sweater. It’s turned into a relaxing long weekend.

First sweater experiment for CUExperiments! Definitely my favourite part of making a new pattern. Love figuring it all out first hand & designing something brand new. Still a long work in progress but this is definitely working out better than anyone else’s pattern I’ve tried to learn with. Complete DIY project.
