These have been sitting on my desktop for a while, and in my sketchbook a little while before that. So happy with how they turned out : )
I wanted to share this cute lil art bag I’d made for a very dear friend (a very late birthday prez), from oil cloth, grosgrain, and a jean jacket (I save all my denim)! I love making things for my friends. They’re each so unique, that I like to give something showing them how much I appreciate that they’re in my life, and a gift that no one else would have. The stone fruit fabrics were part of a theme as I’d sent a little cookbook using stonefruit for the seasons in pies and galettes. I tried to make the pom zipper pull to match the dotted grosgrain at the bottom. Hope all her pencils fit!
Last week, I’d finished my RARE Bear and sent him off to be stuffed and given to a very courageous kid. I’d found out about this organization through Spoonflower, as they’d had a “sew in” in March. Volunteers sewed up these cute little bears for children who have diseases which, not only is there no cure, but not researched because they’re so rare and the funding just isn’t put into treatments. Click on RARE Bear Army if you’d like to help the cause!
