Meet George

I recently participated in a tea towel swap on Craftster.  My partner asked for Yeti’s to be the focus of the towels.  Man. You should have been in my brain when I read that.

WTF?! YETI’S ARE WHITE! TEA TOWELS ARE WHITE! WHAT THE HECK AM I SUPPOSE TO DO?

…was just one thing I thought during the beginning of the creative process. I searched high and low for something to spark my creativity and was really having a difficult time of it. I mean, I found a bunch of stuff. There’s no lacking for Yeti/Big Foot/Sasquatch stuff out there. Much of it very cutesy, gorey, ferocious…but that’s just not what I was looking for. I wanted something different.  Something that would just make me go…OH. You know?

I finally found it. A picture of Big Foot in a suit. I swear you never know when or why those creative synapses are going to fire!  My partner received today and so now I can post my pictures. All three are done on 100% cotton tea towels. Two of them were embellished after stitching using watercolor paints. The third one is embellished with acrylic felt.

Christmas Ornament Swap

My wonderful partners in the recent Christmas Ornament Swap over at Craftster have received my packages, and so I’m finally able to post pictures of my recent creations. I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.

I enjoyed the process of creating these.  Most of the work was design/logistics versus actual creation time. Overall I’d say they worked up rather quickly.  I was afraid that I got myself in too deep, but felt is wonderfully forgiving. I’d recommend trying something like this!

If you’re interested in seeing more detailed pictures of these ornaments you’re welcome to visit my Flickr Photostream where I posted several close up pictures of each of the ornaments.
