grandsons and spoonflower

Have you heard of Spoonflower? It’s an online store where you can upload your digital art and print it on fabric, wall paper and gift wrap. Here is a pattern¬†design I created and had printed on fabric for my dad’s curtains in his camper. He wanted polka dots and it had to match his cushion fabric.

Anyway, Spoonflower is where I returned to last week to start a new project for my grandson, who is three. He just started drawing people. Below is a picture he drew of himself and his mom and dad.

I wanted to take his person and create fabric just like I did for my dad’s curtains. So, I took one of his drawings and uploaded it to Spoonflower and had it printed on a fat quarter of cotton. Here is his person printed on the fat quarter.

Then I made it into a stuffed pillow / person for him. It’s super soft. It’s funny, he thought when it was done, it looked like a tooth. What do you think?

curtains and weddings

Hi, it’s been a fun week. I’ve been to a friend’s wedding in Carmel Valley last weekend and this weekend my daughter and grandson visited. Here are some pictures from the wedding venue.

The crafty part of the weekend was sewing a curtain from a bedsheet with my daughter. This is her first time sewing. Crazy that I just learned a couple months ago. The machine my friend Tami let us borrow is getting used a lot! Guess I may need to get myself one soon.
