delicious fabric, hmmmmm


I had so much fun making these menu covers for No. 5's new look (and taste) menu. Ah, to find perfect little bits of fabric and match them with other bits and pieces all for bits of aesthetic awesomeness, pretty great. They were sewn onto recycled plastic A4 display folders, so that they can be washed, in the highly likely event that someones greasy paws may just get a bit too friendly with these little numbers (regardless of all the beautiful claims from all at No. 5 that they will risk life and limb to protect them). They are also beautifully handwritten by Casey and adorned with gorgeous illustrations by Holly, such a beautiful collaboration of local talent.
Oh, yeah, there is also a beautiful blurb by Jason and Steve about why they set up No. 5 and what their vision is, basically it just exudes focus on local, sustainable and our community.


Oh and by the way remember the Pat movie we made for the Local Food Film Festival? Guess what, we won!! How exciting, basically it means Pat gets shown before a feature film at the Bowraville Local food Film Festival, Bellingen Local Food Film Festival and The Coffs Harbour Local Food Film Festival and we get $1000 prize money. We are toying up with where we could put it back into the community or what we could create with it for our town. Needless to say, we are thrilled.

I have just gotten back from Sydney, yes, I was lucky enough to have a couple of days solo as I went down to see Mumford and Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and then also 'managed' some wonderful moments with some very special friends. Needless to say the concert was so much fun, full of energy, love, dancing and rollicking tunes.

  5. oh the menus are so cute! I'd envisaged them as bigger - they look totally amazing together. And $1000! you'll have so much fun deciding what to do with that. Edward Sharpe is getting a lot of play here as the kids love them and the stories I have told from the concert.

    LOVE YOU!

  6. They look beautiful Jay - lovely stash of fabric and such a nice idea...I want to order some food from them! You have no idea how jealous I am that you saw Edward Sharpe and the MZs :( I sooo wanted to go! Funny moment the other day with Chanelle getting extremely excited by a link to a gig at The Metro and rounding us all up for tix...only to find that the gig was March this year not next year! Oh the disappointment! Off the computer for me and back to FK preparation!
