Wedding Pillows

I haven't posted in forever.  I have been so busy with Ryan's house remodel that I haven't had much time for projects.  I did make 25 pillows for the daughter of my good buddy Rox.  Her upcoming wedding is a "country outdoorsy theme" and they wanted pillows to put on the benches and chairs.  With "vintage" pieces of lots and lots of fabric Kipp and I mixed and matched and came up with these...

Hope the bride is happy with them...

And the house remodel continues...

and on, and on, and on...

House remodel update

Thought I'd share some photos of the house update...it's the project that has kept me fairly busy the last few weeks (not too much time for fun creative projects in the studio) but I'm really enjoying working side by side with Ryan.  I think the house will be really cool when we get finished!
Here's the house exterior...cute...lots of potential

living room before...yes, those are pebbles on the floor

The Eva Purse

My good buddy Roxanne is wild for dachshunds.  In fact she rescues them...she has 6!  At Christmas we shot portraits of them all and created a coffee table book.  One picture of "Eva" has inspired stationery...and now...a purse. 
I took this shot of Eva and turned it into a silhouette.  I cut a silk screen 
stencil from contact paper and adhered it to the screen.
I printed some notecards and fabric

I quilted all three pieces (body of the purse and ends)

Attached handle straps

Sewed the ends after attaching a zipper

Voila'...the Eva purse
