I went on a nice walk with my friend Rebecca Green yesterday morning. It’s so chilly outside in the morning now, but a brisk walk, with some warm water and fun walking partner was just what I needed. (She also happens to be an amazing artist and illustrator.) She helped give me the idea to start sewing wallets….so I did. 🙂 In fact, I made five of them. It was fun create my own pattern. I’m still thinking about how I can add a zipper pocket to it, or if it needs a closure, but right now I think they are nice, simple little wallets with 3 pockets to hold cards (each pocket would probably hold 2) and a pocket to hold dollar bills. They are nice and sturdy with lots of interfacing. I was so proud of myself I just had to share them with you right away:
They will be for sale tomorrow, along with all kinds of other goodies at the Eastown Street Fair. I’ll be there from 9Am-8Pm. I’ll also be adding wallets to my online shop.
I also stopped into my local Goodwill store today and found a huge reproduction of painting by Jodi Fuchs.
I also came across this image I had tucked away in an desktop folder. I was thinking about how much fun it would be to paint on leaves, or even have some of my students do that too. (I’m an elementary art teacher by day.)
Well, have a great night and hope your weekend is off to a good start. I’m about to start some bean quesadillas featuring some local goat cheese from the Dancing Goat Creamery…yum! Hope to see you at the Street Fair tomorrow!!
