Pretty new bags…

As promised, I’m working on a series of three NEW 58.00 faerie bags. Heres a little sneakpeak of the fabric that the wings are going to be made of…
shimmery threads in late summer/autumn colors!

Pictures coming *soon*!!!

Went “exploring” in Vermont…blew faerie bubble wishes in the wind, basked in the sunshine, gazed wondrously at the amazing land that exists there…untouched

Messenger Bag Commission~*~*~

Here’s a photo of a messenger bag I recently created. A beautiful faerie with golden leaves tucked behind her pointy ears decorates this bag. She even has white stars on her wine colored wings (I was inspired by Froud’s use of light for this!). Strands of golden threads hilight her wings as well. The bags flap is an asymmetrical design, and is snug against the body when worn “messenger style” across the chest. The flap flips open to reveal two compartments and a giant pocket with an applique that says “believe”, surrounded by two golden leaves. Always believing…


Studio Updates

1. I’m making a series of smaller faerie bags, 58 dollar range. Stay tuned! Lots of new, durable material in shades of purples, greens and blues, The perfect background colors for your faerie bag!
2. Finishing up some art quilts, including “Blackbird”. See previous journal entry for the photos.
3. I’ve been practicing silk painting with dyes all summer long. A very challenging medium. I hope to have some silk wall hanging art up soon!
4. Finishing a commissioned messenger bag. See the faerie applique below.

Blackbird Wall Hanging

1. I finished “Blackbird”!

Her face is hand painted. She wears a dress made from shimmery purple fabric, batiked fabric and lovely vintage black lace. Very delicate! She touches twisty branches where a blackbird perches. Sparkley silver stars shine behind her.

Two blackbird feathers adorn the top of the wall hanging. They are made from hand painted fabric and LOTS of shiny silver thread.

A nest on the bottom left side of the wall hanging houses three blackbird eggs.
