Today’s craft show was a lot of fun—here’s a peek at my table:
I am absolutely horrible at smiling in pictures, so sadly, the pictures with me in the booth just didn’t turn out too great. But the show was fun—I sold some art and even more exciting, I sewed.
Yes, you read that right—sewed. Sitting at a craft show is absolutely the best time to get some stitching in, although it is admittedly hard to draw.
I haven’t done any sewing in quite a while, in fact, you probably haven’t really seen any sewing if you’ve been following this blog. But, I love fabric, have always loved fabric, and have often collected too much fabric for the little sewing I do.
Last Tuesday, I felt an itch to do something with my hands, something a little different—so I launched into a kind of sewn fabric drawing. With my time at the craft show today, I was able to finish this project, and here it is:
I am not a tremendously precise person, so to be honest, I can’t and probably never will be able to sew a straight line (with a machine or without), but I’m happy with how this turned out. You can’t see it very well here, but the white fabric has a lovely leaf pattern on it.
I’m not sure what I’ll do with this piece—frame it and hang it as 2-d artwork? Sew it into a bag? Put it in a drawer for some later purpose? Anyone got any ideas?
It was pretty fun, and it gives me a good excuse to go buy more fat quarters, so I think I might make another. We’ll just have to see what tomorrow brings! Happy crafting!
