Appliqued Wall Art, Anyone?

I'm trying out something new! I had an idea to make some wall art for my awesome Grandma for Mother's Day. She already has a few kitchen towels and I wanted something she might see more often (we live across the country from each other and I miss her!). So here is my first try! It's 12" x 12" and actually went pretty smoothly for my first time!I have had a lot of interest in making some to sell - they would be really cute nursery artwork, kids room art, and just generally nifty to hang around your house. My husband just-so-happens to be a carpenter and already told me he can make any size frame pretty quickly and easily.

I'm excited about possibly expanding into more adult areas - I often get asked what I'm going to do with Hip Violet when my girls are grown (they are currently 4 and 2 so I have a while!) and although I always think I'll be making bibs, I would love to be able to offer handmade items to a wider variety of people!

Let me know what you think!

Also, the craft show season has BEGUN!! Up first is one of my favorite shows, the Horseshoe Craft & Flea! It's in NW Denver and features tons of my favorite indie crafters as well as antique and vintage finds too. What more could you ask for? Oh, I know - FOOD TRUCKS! This year they have a ton of really great local food trucks as well as one from The Food Network's Great Food Truck Race! What?!?

See you there!


p.s. Guess what? I'm TWEETING! Follow me @HipViolet!
