Message in a Bottle necklace. Text: More Fance than ever.


Where have I been? What have I been doing? These are questions you might be asking. Heck, I’ve been asking that of myself! I’ve actually sequestered myself in my study making lots of things, far from human contact (not really). Last night I launched the biggest update of Fancy Lady Industries in history and I figured, “hey why not tell people about it?” Obviously my social/ marketing skills are a bit rusty.

Big Girls Donut Cry patches and flower crowns available on Fancy Lady Industries.

5 April, 2012

A photo of me rolling around on the bed wearing a blue flower crown.


If you’ve signed up for the Fancy Lady Industries mailing list you probably already know that the patches and flower crowns are up on my shop, but I hadn’t posted about it on my blog because my left shoulder decided it would like very much to cause me bogloads of pain. At least today I’m feeling a bit better, and I could sew my own patch on to my jacket to show you just one way to wear it!

A photo of a fluro red and a black patch that says "big girls donut cry" around a donut, as well as a fluro red sticker with the same design.


I went through a terrible emotional/ financial journey to bring you these patches. At first I was just going to use some fabric pens I’d bought, but lots of people said they liked the donut design so I figured it’d be kinder on my hand to use my Gocco to print a limited run of patches. Sixteen bulbs and eight screens later, I finally had a properly burnt screen! This will probably be the last thing I ever print using the Gocco simply because the cost of supplies has spiraled out of control. There’s another machine called the Yudu that looks fantastic, but sadly it has been discontinued too. WHAT’S THE DEAL?!

When we move I will endeavor to learn proper screen printing so I can continue making stuff like this and t-shirts too! However! In order to move on to bigger and better things, I need capital to invest back in to Fancy Lady Industries so if you want to support me and see me create even more awesome stuff, go on and buy something from the shop! :D

I wanted to have a go at putting my patch on my jacket because I haven’t sewn on a patch in years. When I was a Brownie we had these pillows that we were meant to sew our collection of badges on to but I ended up using PVA glue to attach them all because I couldn’t be bothered sewing them on. If you want to glue your patch on, make sure you fold back the raw edges behind the patch and iron them so you don’t have thread coming off all the time. On the other hand, you might like the raw edge look! It’s up to you of course.

For my patch I had to figure out how to blanket stitch again. I know there is probably a better stitch to use, but I like blanket stitch! It was a bit awkward sewing the patch on the sleeve, and I didn’t end up with a completely flat patch, but I’m okay with it. I recommend using lots of pins to position the patch, then baste around the whole thing so it doesn’t shift as you blanket stitch. Had I basted first, I probably would have had a much flatter result! (Here’s a clear “two step” blanket stitch tutorial.)

If you’d rather have someone else attach your patch, embroidery places should only charge a few dollars to run around it and it will look spiffy and profesh.

I also added spikes and studs over each shoulder, and a heart shaped stud on each collar point; I really like the idea of turning this jacket into a living garment, one that is adapted over time to reflect my life. It’s sort of like a quilt except… badass.

New special things for you on Fancy Lady Industries!

27 January, 2012

A collage of three images: Zoe being fabulous with a pink floral headpiece and wearing a vain necklace while holding a mirror; a graphic that says "Vain. Because I'm amazing."; and the Vain necklace lying over a collection of lipsticks.


I’ve been busy busy lately working on new products for Fancy Lady Industries, including the new and fabulous Vain necklace! After feeling some feelings and thinking some thoughts on ugliness and vanity, I started doodling and developed the Vain lettering. It simply begged to be made into a necklace, and voila!

Buy a Vain necklace now!

Four postcards stuck on a wall, each with one of my ugly femme illustrations.


Also! I am proud to have postcards with my illustrations available to buy in packs of four. You can send these to people or just keep them for yourself and put them in small frames. Instant affordable art for your walls!

Tshirts, stickers and gym bags!

Just a quick post to alert everyone to the fact that I’ve finally updated my Red Bubble account with recent work. Horah! I was intentionally holding off until I could afford to fund my own print venture but it’s not going to happen for another few months at least so I thought I’d throw them on Red Bubble in the meanwhile. I also added some fat positive designs you can buy in tshirt, hoody or sticker form!

Because Red Bubble do not offer womens’ plus sizes I have also started a Cafe Press store, where you can buy a fat positive gym bag if you’re a subversive fatty ;)

Now go forth and desensitise people to the “f word”!

Fancy Lady Industries


EDIT 15 April 2010
I have created a proper shop to sell these items so we don’t have to go through the old fashioned invoice thing. Horah! Go over this way for the Fancy Lady Industries shop.


I have been planning for a long time to sell the various bits and pieces I have made in the last few months. Today I’m glad to announce that I will be having a garage sale in my blog to celebrate the beginning of Fancy Lady Industries!

If you see something you’d like to buy please comment with the item number, your Paypal email address and the country you live in and I will formulate the postage and invoice you for the total. You can also email me your Paypal address and the items you’d like to purchase.

Postage will be calculated based on where you live, and it’s recommended that you opt for insurance if you are purchasing artworks because I can’t be held responsible for the slip ups of Australia Post. I can probably ship all over the world too, so don’t let distance get in the way!
