Patchwork Santa Ana
Yesterday was the Patchwork craft show in Santa Ana, California. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the crowds were out. We had a great location in a corner spot. Gilded Moon sells beautiful jewelry (I bought a pair of earrings at the show last weekend and have my eye on another pair!) blog by South African artist Heather Moore (etsy shop skinny laminx) and thought that it looked really quick and easy, which it was. At a local quilt shop, I purchased for $10 a pack of 42 pre-cut pieces (Moda, California Girl) with the edges pinked. I simply cut each piece down the middle and had enough pieces for 3 strands of bunting. I pinned and sewed the fabric onto 12 foot lengths of twill ribbon. It was an easy one night project. Here's the result:Bazaar Latino (I purchased one from her etsy shop just last week) Hephzi Creations. I love the way she lined the vintage suitcases with fabric to display her jewelry. www.sewsweetnsimple.wordpress.com and at missvickyb.blogspot.com.
