I’m having a little shop update Monday (12/17 – 2pm ny time), you’ve already seen some of the new things- toadstools and little owls – and there are a couple new ships as well. One is paper mache:
And the other is made from an antique quilt fragment – pretty grays and lilac.
Both have little owl captains.
There is also a new dark toadstool with a little teal owl perched underneath- both made from turn of the century garments.
The new things will be available in the shop on Monday- 12/17 at 2 pm (new york time).
A little fleet of custom color boats that shipped off today. And thanks so much to everyone who waited so patiently for them.
Each boat has flying colors and a merry wobbler pilot.
A couple previews of tomorrows shop update – I’ll post more here if time permits tomorrow morning ( there are 3 new owls too).
The hull is made from an antuique quilt top, the sail is antique ticking and the owl captain is made from a vintage feed sack.
And another made from mostly Japanese textiles (courtesy of Sri Threads) – in moody lavender grey tones.
I found this great old quilt top upstate a while ago.
Unfortunately a lot of it is too damaged to sew but I love the colors and prints and there is enough for a couple boats and ships.
The pattern for this ship evolved out of my fabric sailboat pattern as I was revising it a little before teaching the boat making class at Squam. It’s just about complete now and I’ll photograph it later this week. There is a little gentleman sailor captain.
I ‘m pleased with the shape and I’ve already begun another ship in a kind of grayish hibiscus color that’s been on my mind lately.
I’m busy working on new birds and ships and boats - I’ll add them to the shop this Thursday. Here’s a preview of a couple new things:
Please join the mailing list at my shop if you would like an email when they are available.
There is a spring regatta in the shop!
Boats ready to ship and some available to order.
The ship and 2 sailboats above will be in the shop early next week – I’m photographing them and a lot of other things (owls, spiders, birds, ballerinas and maybe another bat) over the weekend. And I might have one more ship too – I’m working on it now. If you are on the mailing list I’ll let you know when they are available.
The paper mache, birds, sweetheart and small things sections of the shop have been updated. A couple of the new birds will be available to order shortly after what is available today has sold so please check back.
And a couple recent favorite new things from the park slope flea market, some amazing vintage fabric, a little chair and a fantastic little anvil. The floral fabric is already a little bird.
The owls above and some other new things are available here now.
Between filling orders and new things I ‘ve made a crazy amount of stuff over the last few weeks and at the moment I’m kind of spent (I’m starting to think my boss is an a**hole….) so in the interest of not losing my marbles , I decided to do the this shop update in 2 sections – today there are owls, spiders bats and ballerinas. Next week will be boats, ships, small things and birds, a couple ships are previewed below and I’ll post other previews here soon.
