The "Wooly Critters" were a huge success as were my ornaments. I sold my three backpacks as well. It is very rewarding watching people walk by and break into a huge smile. I knew then that I had done a good job in bringing my whimsy to life.
My Christmas bunnies sold out as did my backpacks. They were so much fun to make and I will make the bunnies again for the next holiday season. Here are just a sampling:
As you can see they are about 7" or so to the tip of their ears.
Once I finished with the wee bunny girls I decided to alter the jacket pattern and create some bunny boys:
In addition to the bunnies I also made some snowmen and angel ornaments as well as some foxes and raccoons but the bunnies were the favourites, I think due to my "over the top" embroidery on the front and back of the coats and jackets. Here are a few of the back of the pieces:
Well now on to the next show which starts on Wednesday, November 23rd at the Coast Collective Art Centre in Colwood BC, the "Gift and Wishes" show. Luckily I saved some special ornaments and critters for this show as well!
That is all for now and I hope that you remember to support your local artists and buy local this holiday season! It is not the quantity but the quality of the gift that matters. Everyone appreciates a special hand made gift from a local artisan, I know I do!
