Hey, I made this fabric. And you can too.

These are my first (and slightly wrinkled) fabric samples from Spoonflower. Spoonflower is a site where you can design and make your own fabrics. They have several types to choose from, including two types of organic cotton fabric. These were my first tries and were super fun. You should give it a go, Check out the link to the left.

Tomato Pincushions

What do I do with all of the little bits of fabric and fur I save from my creatures? Well, I make fun little pincushions! These are made from larger scraps and filled with the small scraps. I add the brick-brack so it can hang as an ornament if you would like.

Thank you all of the great classes

Thank you every one who came to the nest and creature making classes at Oly Frame over the past two weeks. They we fun and huge learning experiences for me. I will soon post picture of the creatures class but in the mean time here is Badger! Badger is a get better Badger. This fuzzy made from recycled sweaters is living with my friend who got in a horrible accident with his bike. Badger is a good neck and hand propping size. I've been meaning to make my friend a Badger for some time and this seemed like a good, although sad, one.
