Renegade San Francisco–this weekend!

Renegade Fair SFTomorrow I’m getting up early, grabbing coffee and donuts at Dynamo, and heading over to Fort Mason for the 3rd Annual Renegade Craft Fair SF! So looking forward to it…and I found out the Barney’s New York Warehouse sale is happening right next store, so I might just have to pop in there and shop and some more. Have a fabulous weekend!


Handmade Tags

anita's handmade tagsI made these tags last night for Rance’s mom following this tutorial. All you need is iron-on transfer paper, some ribbon (I used 1/2″ cotton twill), an xacto knife and cutting mat, and an iron! Gonna pop them in the mail this afternoon. I also finished sewing another project which I cannot share til next week because it’s a birthday present for someone really special…

Pillows for Mr. and Mrs.

kara and ryan pillowsMy sister Chan commissioned me to make a wedding gift for her friends Kara and Ryan, who are getting married this weekend in Colorado. I spent Sunday afternoon sewing together a couple of shirt pillows (one using a men’s white tuxedo shirt, and the other a women’s lavender ruffled shirt.) The hang tags and card were made using rubber stamps by Hero Arts. A big congratulations to the couple!

The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

I signed up for this project yesterday after I saw it over on Gennine’s blog. I can’t wait to get my sketchbook in the mail! What’s exciting about this whole thing is that the tour will be stopping in my own city of San Francisco. If you are interested, there is still time to join the fun.

It’s Pouring!

raindrop dollsLast night I finished up the remaining raindrop dolls I started last week. Some turned out better than others (a couple are a bit lopsided). I guess we’re not perfect and neither are raindrops! I was happy to use up most of the scraps leftover from my shirt pillows. Now I just need to give them all names…

A Little Owl Love for Miss June Adele

owl pillowI made a little sleepy owl pillow for my friend Ruby’s newborn daughter June Adele. She’s so adorable (do you see her in the birth announcement in the photos above?) On Saturday, I drove up to Healdsburg and we spent the day catching up (haven’t seen each other in 3 years!). It was a perfect Saturday afternoon.
