I picked up the November issue of Better Homes and Gardens and unexpectedly came across this gorgeous spread.
I love the cut felt letters and brackets. I just makes me want to start making something with my felt stash.
This article is all about Etsy. There are some really great ideas and shop finds.
I was happy to see someone I have followed for quite awhile. Heather Shaw, of pi'lo has a thriving business making beautiful items for babies, kids and homes.
My mom and I used to visit her display booth at the Toronto One of a Kind for years and she was always a big hit with her gorgeous take on the letters of the alphabet.
She made our "go-to-gift" - a bear in a pillow pocket - for every baby shower we went to. About 12 years ago, my mom had her make two gorgeous linen duvet covers - they are still in perfect condition.
On this page she contributed the felt cracker in the top left and the sewing kit. Both can be found in her etsy shop (see below) but this issue also gives directions so you can make them yourself. Heather has a beautiful crafted simplicity to her work. I remember once visiting one of her studios and she kept her invoices in silk pouches hanging from the wall! The whole space was a dream.
You can visit Heather's blog here or visit her etsy shop and pick up a sewing kit or wonderful pillow.
