knitting and woolly tattoos

A couple weeks ago I shared the hat that I was knitting a hat in this blog post. The Tilly hat pattern is by Rachel Price and Kate Burge for Spincycle Yarns. Well, last week Dottie Angel shared with us how to woolly tattoo them. I love embroidery and this was so fun. Check out the hat now.

I’ve even started woolly tattooing my washcloths.

knitting and hats

Created this fun and easy hat this week. It’s called the Tilly hat. The pattern is by Rachel Price and Kate Burge for Spincycle Yarns. The yarn was really nice to knit. Here is a picture of it unblocked. I loved the cloche that you cinch up on one side.

Once I knit and blocked, we got to wooly tattoo it. I picked these left overs to tattoo.

farm flora

The holidays are over and I had a free Friday to myself. It’s been raining here in Santa Cruz and I’m loving the results. It’s GREEN, the streams are flowing, and the grass is growing. It’s our spring. Went for a walk and gathered some sketching fodder.

Here is a peek of some of the sketches. I tried to use some different tools to sketch, but always seem to come back to the Micron 5 and Micron 1. ;)

rainy day font

I learned how to make my own font this week. I highly recommend ‘Create Your Hand Drawn Font‘ with Jenn Coyle on SkillShare. I started out by sketching my font in pencil and then filling it in with pen.

Then I scanned it into PhotoShop and cleaned up the letters.

Lastly, I imported them into Illustrator made them into vector files. I made both a lower and an upper case.

Lastly, I imported them into Glyphs, which I got for free for 30 days. Happy me.

Here is what it looks like in word.

Here is what it looks like in a drawing. Love that it matches my style of hand drawn art.

abundance and gratitude

Last week I had my very first art show at Stripe MEN and it was fabulous. Thank you to everyone that came out to show their support. The place was packed for over three hours and the store had the most sales on a first Friday event! Here are some pictures. Below is the store as seen from the front entrance.
