cloth, canvas, craft…art.

A good friend is having her second child in July. I was unable to go to her baby shower a few weeks ago due to having my swim meet also scheduled that morning. We met with her and her husband this afternoon for lunch at a great restaurant in East Austin called Casa Colombia. The food was great, according to her husband, “it’s soul food for South Americans.” There I was finally able to give her the gift I’d been working on since returning from our Western Roadtrip. I saw similar pieces like this in an adorable baby store in Boulder called Poppy. Upon inspection I figured I’d be able to go home and make my own.

In mine I decided to depict a mermaid holding a ruby instead of a pearl…Ruby is a name they’ve been throwing around for possible baby names, so I thought it was fitting. She loved it and I was so glad she did as artwork is so personal and a risky gift to give.

Since this one was such a success I’ve decided that I’ll start making some more. My mom and her friend are planning a craft/art event in Central Austin around Christmas and I figured these would be great things to sell.
