craftin' with mah birches

I've been fixated lately with the idea of making a bunch of stuff with my fabric and taking some fancy product shots. Lotta style. I plan to enlist a friend's fancy DSLR and rustic dining table and have a lotta (haw haw) fun with it.

These aren't an example of such 'fancy shots', just my feeble attempts to tide me over in the meantime:







I love the way these photos totally conceal the wonkyness of the potholder. Obviously I have a lot to learn about sewing with batting and quilting :)

Dude. You could make BILLIONS if not trillions, selling those oven mittens. Like, trillions. They are so lovely.

I have to tell you, you have inspired me to renew my drawing and create patterns in the hopes that in a few years form now I be designing lovely textiles as yours. So thank you for your inspiration, just know that you are doing something great, whether you realize it or not.

Loves!
Amy

You're a brave woman for showing us the inside of your oven! There is no way I could make mine public :)

i have finally got around to sewing up my little bit of gold birch forest fabric - i made it into a cushion and have just added a couple of quick photos to my blog if you'd like to have a look :-)
