Market Prep, Part 5
Today's post will be brief on words but filled to the brim with wonderful imagery. I'm sure you won't complain. I want to share the amazingly gorgeous items I've been receiving from my talented sample sewers. Words cannot describe the feeling I get every time I open a package from these ladies...
Handmade purse by Marieliz Creations (a.k.a. "mom"). This purse is amazing!! I have her original version made with Amy Butler's Nigella fabrics (as do at least half-a-dozen others, from the look of her Etsy "sold items" screen, LOL!) but now I have one made with Andalucia and am beside myself with joy. It's so gorgeous!! Just see for yourself. And don't forget to check out her etsy store for lots of handmade pretties.
Jingle bell fabric play balls by Heather Kaeb, polkadottotspot. So fun and playful and she was able to use all 24 fabric prints! WOOHOO! Thanks so much, Heather, I just adore them. Check out Heather's etsy store.
Super adorable matrioshka doll with her own babushka in her pocket (OK, after writing this post I realized I totally butchered the spelling and meaning of these words but hey, you get my drift...) by Kristen Hallagan, gocksfrocks. I'm sure most of you guys already know Kristen and her talent. Here's a link to Kristen's etsy store.
Will Sophie be able to part with it long enough to take it to Quilt Market & back? That remains to be seen...
Kristen also made this cutie weiner dog...
Myrinda, of Fabric Hound, made Candy her own little Andalucia kimono and she looks oh, so fabulous in it!
I had fun pairing up all the "pinks" for a girlie shoot in Sydney's bedroom...
Elephant by Kristen of gocksfrocks, Cube & Ball by Heather of thepolkadottotspot, Pillows by Patty Young
Oh, and I have to share this picture cause I think it's pretty funny (well, I find these kinds of things rather humorous... hope you do too!).
Concept pillow is on the right, real sewn pillow on the left:
Stay tuned! In the next couple of days I will be sharing sneak peeks of some of the most amazing quilts I've ever seen. You'll be blown away!!! I've also been keeping myself busy sewing outfits and upholstering chairs for my Quilt Market booth. I'll share those soon too. :)
