I'm driving to West Reading tomorrow to deliver a carload of products to Hello Bluebird. Lots of pillows, small accessories, and the new pot holders that I've been hinting about for the past few weeks. In spite of sewing machine problems due to the thickness and issues with the materials I used, I finally got them done and am happy with the results. See for yourself...
They're a great way to use up some of the small scraps of fabrics and linens I've been saving (this particular one has a section of linen towel, a piece from a vintage tablecloth, and scraps from a 1940s quilt that I took apart). The back is the same modern strawberry print as the bottom right corner.
Alex will be a vendor at Art Star Craft Bazaar next weekend and will be taking some of my things with her to the show, including (I think) these pot holders.
In case you've never heard of it, the Art Star Craft Bazaar is an outdoor retail art/craft show that is juried by Philadelphia's Art Star Gallery & Boutique. More than a hundred artists have been chosen as vendors and they'll be setting up booths along the Delaware River waterfront at Penn's Landing (Great Plaza on Columbus Blvd. between Walnut and Chestnut Streets).
Expect to find high-quality handmade goods that are unique and a little bit quirky (kind of like Art Star itself) including housewares, paper goods, dolls, paintings and art prints, clothing and accessories, sculpture, and other one-of-a-kind goodies. The show is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 15th-16th from 11-6.
So, stop in to the Hello Bluebird booth and say hi to Alex. And I won't complain if you buy some of my things :)
Of course, this leaves me with no pot holders for my website. But, never fear, I'll be starting on a new batch next week. Look for them on my web site soon!
