Fall is here!
This has been an amazing fall. Beautiful colors and the opportunity to join some friends on a weekly hike throughout Portland’s parks and neighborhoods. With the season, my creative projects have been transforming also. I am having so much fun with felted wool. Slippers, purses, hats and fingerless gloves. I just wore a pair of the gloves on this morning’s hike and they were terrific.
These items are “upcycled” from old discarded sweaters. After wet felting, I am refashioning them into new accessories for your enjoyment.
I have more things posted on my Etsy account. I will be taking special orders until December 1 for your holiday gift giving needs.
Personalized Hand Painted Growth Charts
These are samples of some recent growth charts that I have painted. I am personalizing them with names and colors of choice. A permanent marker is included to add your own dates and notes. Special features include 4 vinyl pockets that I am sewing on so favorite pictures of the child can be added. Names can be added in the title, “Watch Nora Grow” or with a hand painted heart “ornament” inscribed with a name. Often, there are multiple children so this is a great way to include everyone.
They are approximately 8″ X 48″ to measure a child up to 5 feet. I am also making some longer to include birth height and up to 6 feet. I am using recycled cotton canvas and drapes when possible so each one is a little different but they have a very heavy muslin feel to them. They are ready to hang suspended by wooden dowels
Some designs are cutesy and feminine, some are more gender neutral. I am eager to make a special one just for you! This is a great gift for expecting parents, a young family and grand parents, too.
$35 – $40 + $5 shipping
