Another New Favorite Artist

Magda Trzaski. I discovered her through Mary Engelbreit’s Home Companion magazine, home of all things sweet and whimsical. Go figure. Magda’s stuff is kind of dark. I would have expected to discover her through Juxtapoz.

I spotted this poster when I was walking home from breakfast this morning.

It’s sew time!

I didn’t finish the Totally Impractical Baby Blanket in time for Sarah and Mas’ baby shower, so I went to the fabric store and bought some cute flannel fabric so I could stitch together a Really Nice Practical Baby Blanket. I also picked up some brown fleece from the remnants pile so I could make a softie of some kind.

Mitch and Kirby were great helpers!

Here is Kirby posing with the finished products. The blanket has a really cute pattern of a puppy and a monkey riding on a giraffe on one side, and solid red for the other. I wasn’t sure what to do about the softie. I was pressed for time and had none to waste trying to develop a pattern. I searched for “softie” on flickr and saw lots of cute things. I decided to use this cute Scotty Dog pattern. It was super easy to sew and I love the results!

Kirby thinks the softie scotty is for him. I think I’m going to have to make another one for him.
