Fabric Transfers

I don't think I have mentioned that I have created some fabric transfers of birds that I am now selling on my etsy site.  The transfers were made from tiny sketches of birds I had done in my sketchbook.  I turned the sketches into cardboard birds for my monotypes.  They were so much fun, that I then took it a step further, and used the cardboard birds to stamp ink onto paper.  That is how the transfers were born.  I had a lot of fun making them, and they have been finding good homes through etsy. 


The reason I am mentioning these transfers is because one of the wonderful people who bought some of my transfers is putting them on these gorgeous handbags she makes!!!  Here is the link to her etsy shop.  She was kind enough to send me some photos of one of the handbags she made with a little "karine bird" on it.  Isn't this a beautiful bag??  I am so delighted to see my birdie having so much fun on such a lovely handmade bag.  This bag is made of leather and linen.  You can see the attention to detail is what makes these bags so special. 
Thank you, Firiona, for not only buying my birds, but also for letting them wander around on your beautiful bags!

For the Pono update, I just want to let you know that the vet trip did the trick.  Pono and I both slept through the night last night, and he is much more like his normal self.  He is pawing at me now, apparently needing a little more food than what I have already given him.  That's a great sign.

I leave you with a photo of the Wooly Daisy.  One of the cutest, tiniest desert blooms around.  I put the quarter next to it for scale.

I wish you and I lived in the same city. Then I could have learned all about printmaking from you. The birds look so good, both by itself and on the bag.

Karine, these are SO adorable! They are an absolute perfect marriage of utility and design! How cool is that?!
