patchwork oakland – may 12!

patchwork show postcardI’ll be there selling embroideries! I’ll be sharing a booth with my friend Angie – she makes bags out of the cutest fabrics – you can see her stuff here! If you’re in the Oakland area you should stop by.

I was a seller last year, and it was so much fun! Patchwork is one of the nicest and busiest craft shows I’ve been able to do. Steady all day, and lots of excited shoppers. It’s a bonus that the other sellers and the folks that put it on are really sweet.

Today I completed something I’ve been meaning to do for a looooooooong time. I made some Legend of Zelda embroideries! It took a couple nights of work for the whole set, which is not bad. 😀 I’m super pleased with them!

Each piece is satin stitched and backstitched, and framed in a itty bitty three inch hoop. Below is a mini walkthrough of how I did it:

I’ve posted a full tutorial and included a pattern on instructables if you’d like to make your own. 😀

And I’m selling them in my etsy store if you’re not much of a crafter!
