I’m so honored. Green Craft is my favorite idea magazine-a thick national publication full of beautiful, inspiring projects made from recycled, and repurposed materials.
The coasters are crafted from recycled coffee sacks (prewashed) and scraps off my sewing room floor–mainly parts of vintage linen calendars.
After cutting off calendar graphics and words for larger projects, found I had a lot of extra months and numbers lying around.
What do you do with December 1977 or March 1982?
Drawing on my background as a video producer and editor, I used these numbers as layers, visual texture to set off a few stray calendar birds.
I love using layers in my work. They draw the eye, calm fabric that’s too bright and blend different elements together as part of a bigger whole.
I also love making useful items–like coasters. Who says the things we use the most can’t be fun to look at.
Green Craft is sold at Barnes and Noble and many craft and fabric stores. Check it out. I can’t wait to make the 6 pack craft cartons. My sewing room is always a mess–
