Another weekend sewing, sewing, sewing. I did manage to go to a party Friday night though. Finally, I have TWENTY one-of-a-kind designs FINISHED… yipee!! Now, I can’t show them all here (that would spoil the surprise, wouldn’t it?) but you can take just a peak at three of my gals. To see the rest…YOU MUST COME TO THE FAIRE!!! OK, OK, I might just give in in these coming weeks, once I start stiching up their leafy bags.

I’ll be there….

Will you??

Just a lil’ Sneak Peak…

At my One-Of-A-Kind fiber art creations for the Faire-
Spent my weekend sewing, sewing, and more sewing. The rest of the time was spent on loooong walks observing the frosty outdoors for inspiration. Thought I would share some of my musings with you. Here’s the pretty ” Sea Green Moon Beam” with her painted cloth face and celtic knot, appliqued and free motion embroidered with shimmery-glimmery golden thread, awaiting my hands to make her into a magical handbag~

Here’s all m’ladies, on the floor with artwork neatly tucked behind them, awaiting the final steps of their creation…

Meet “Elven Star Nature Gal”. She just might be my favorite, if I played that game. She is adorned with spring green leaves, and lots of sparklies in her hair and wings AND she is on a background of super soft purple fabric.

You’ll find a pretty peacock adorned crown on “Peacock Moon”. She had lot’s o’glimmer as well, along with elaborately stitched wingies. She stares at the waning moon above.

And finally, me, DROWNING in a pile of fabric that I ripped through like a madwoman in a wired caffeine fit. Quite embarassing, I know. Folding it all and putting it away was not as fun as ripping it apart.

Some more handbag art…

Snip, snip, snip….Full moon tonight= art craziness!
In addition to cutting out all the applique pieces for the bags, I created some new designs. I couldnt resist! I love how the woman is looking upward at the moon. Sort of a spiritual pose. Gosh, I can’t wait to show a teaser of a finished bag. I created all new bag shapes especially for the Wicked Faire. There’s just so many enchanting, leafy designs. 20 one-of-a-kind bags in all!!! OHHHHHHHH, I cant wait to show everyone!
Anyway, here’s some applique designs…

Other stuff-
~*~*~I bought a pretty burgundy corset on ebay to wear to the faire. I’m going to embellish it a bit with my peacock feather applique designs, and change the satin lacing to leather (this corset laces up in six different places!) Other than that, I still need to make a crown, then I’m set. hmmmm..
Otherwise, back to my fabric stash.

I will be vending my bags at the Wicked Faire!!!!

I have a very, VERY busy month ahead of me!!! Look forward to updates on my progress. Lots of painting and stitching to do!!!

I’ve got something up my sleeve, new bag applique designs to enchant your eyes. These will be sold at a “certain” event….details to follow…promise!!! I’ve been holding back, but here’s a little peak. There’s more coming too! Peacock feathers, celtic knots and elven stars!!!

Also, there will be new bag shapes to go along with all this art nouveau-ish goodness. Leafy shapes in purples and greens. Lots of shimmer!
Oh, and my January inspiration table. Yes, I will post pictures within the next few days.
