I’m tired, it’s true. I’ve been printing and ironing and selling and it’s not over! But darn it, I’m still excited to get my vend on this Sunday at the South Of Marketplace Gift Fair. Get yourself to 1425 Folsom Street between 11:30 – 6:00 pm to get your local, hand-made gifts. It will be fun and festive!
This will mark my second year with the San Francisco Bazaar (formerly Bazaar Bizarre) and I’m excited to be involved! It’s happening this weekend (December 7th and 8th)and here are the details. If you’re into Facebook events, here’s the page for that: http://www.facebook.com/events/398276656949631/

It has occurred to me that my Cedar dish towel looks an awful lot like a Christmas tree. It seems to me that trimming the tree is the next logical step. Well, I had a friend do just that with some fabric glue and a few baubles from the craft store (along with rhinestones that came from a broken ring). Maybe this is kid-friendly? I wouldn’t know. I could easily see an adult embroidering ornaments on there too. Anyway, it’s just another thing that dish towels can do.
You should come to this, Oakland! Please note that it’s being held in the building next door to where it was previously in Jack London Square. Anyway, get there!

Over the summer, I printed a few napkins and tested them at a few craft fairs and markets. The testing went well enough for me to develop a whole line of flour sack napkins. They measure approximately 18″ x 20″ and are on the same quality flour sack fabric that my dish towels are printed on. They sell in matching pairs and are available on either white or natural flour sack cotton in my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/theheated?section_id=14599429
I wanted to create complimentary pairs in case people wanted larger sets of napkins so I went with two trees (Ponderosa Pine and Cedar), two ferns (Rabbit’s Paw Fern and Umbrella Fern) and two herbs (Parsley and Dill). Click on the image to view the larger version. If you are a buyer for a store and would like to see the most recent line list, click here.
All of these designs were created by using actual plants to burn the screens. The tree clippings were gathered from Grass Valley, which gave me a nice little excuse to get away for a few days. It was really fun to make these designs! Here’s some pictures of the process.
I’ve had this idea kicking around in my brain for a long time that I want to include “thank you” tags with orders that ship from my online store. Then, out of the blue, I made it happen last week. Here’s what happened.
