I've been planning to make some new stuff for a while but business things always get in the way. I made these three coordinating prints and made them each into a throw pillow with coordinating cotton fabric on the backside. They are available in the Etsy shop. I only made one of each and probably won't be making more. They are fun as a set but can be bought individually. Enjoy the pictures!
Doing that paper cut snowflake from the last post inspired me to do some more holiday related paper cut art so I made some paper typography which I photographed and made into some postcards to send out to all of the coolest people that make what I do possible.
This year was a very special year because Hanukkah fell on the day before Thanksgiving making it a double mega-holiday that has never happened before and won't happen again for another 70,000 years. As always I made special presents for my parents and sister. 9"
Travel friendly zippered pouches with a new fabric and magenta zippers for my Mommy
A 9" tall giraffe I needle felted for my big sister (she loves giraffes and PINK!)
don't ask me how long it took :-P
A bit more manly colored pouches to hold my Daddy's on-the-go paper stuff.
Silly drawn hang tags
Wrapped presents using this amazing "I love you a latke!" wrapping paper from Target designed by my friend Liz Apple who does rad design for their holiday department!
