We spent some time this weekend working on owl projects. The actual pillows are made from all new materials. Clara is made from reclaimed vintage fabrics and buttons. Bertie is made from reclaimed vintage and new fabrics, with vintage button eyes. It's hard to see in the pictures, but they are top stitched (by machine) onto the cotton pillow fabric. We will be working on some more of these to add to our shop and to Etsy.
We are excited about 2011. As I've mentioned previously, everything we did in 2010 was spontaneous and with little planning. December found us working on custom orders and struggling to keep up; and, with countless ideas floating around in our heads that never made it out. However, our goal for 2011 is to have a plan and stick to it! That plan will hopefully include another weekend at the Nashville Flea Market in the spring. The fate of the Nashville Flea Market was in the hands of local government throughout last year, but it appears everything has been resolved for now and the flea market will continue at its original location. One of the best parts of our new venture has been meeting all the friendly and fun people. That was the best part of the Nashville Flea Market for us!
Thanks for your interest in our blog and our little business!
