Today I want to showcase my friend Marcia who knits, quilts and especially loves to sew for little girls.
Last week she sent me the photo above of a Doll's Bed in a Basket that she made for a toddler. She used my Lab Puppies Pink fabric design, printed by Spoonflower.com. Marcia chose the Labs wearing the purple bandanas which are turned so they print well for baby blankets. She picked the minky option for the top of the doll blanket and used cotton for the pillowcase! I really like the gray and white fabric she picked to go with it. I love this doll bed! It's so sweet. And it's just perfect for a two year old to use and carry around. (Note the handles on the ends of the basket)!
Here's a jumper Marcia just finished. The patterned fabric is batik and the inside is corduroy! Using those two fabrics together is really brilliant! The corduroy gives the light batik fabric more body and makes the jumper warm enough to wear in the fall and winter.
Marcia and others also sew dresses which they sell at the annual St Mary's Art Walk to benefit, I Still Matter, an organization whose mission is "to foster mental and emotional healing through art and creative expression". Click the link to find out more about I Still Matter.
Here's a photo of their dress display at this year's St. Mary's Art Walk in Jacksonville, Florida. Aren't these dresses beautiful! ALL the dresses they made sold! Pretty awesome!
I'm going to give the blog nap next week, letting it dream of sugar plums and other wonderful things! But I'll be back soon!
