It's almost Mother's Day and, silly us, we're a bit behind on our holiday preparations! So, today in the studio we decided to band together and make a few simple, but still very special, projects that you can easily finish between now and Sunday.
Laura Wunderli is our fantastic new intern, hailing from Canada (more from her soon!). She made a fabric covered card with the Tove pattern from Lotta's new Glimma collection. It can be put together in minutes and packs a sweet punch.
1 piece of card stock
Lotta Jansdotter fabric
Multi-purpose adhesive spray or glue
2. Cut a piece of your favorite Lotta Jansdotter fabric slightly larger than your card stock.
3. Spray multi-purpose adhesive on your card stock and lay the fabric on top. Press down firmly and smooth.
4. Using fabric shears trim the edges of the fabric. Inside write a special note and hand off to Mom!
3. Using a light, tapping motion, paint over the stencil onto the fabric. If needed, untape the stencil and move it to the side to create a repeat. Let try for 20 minutes and lightly iron the front and back of the fabric with a dry iron on the cotton setting. Go over it a few times to make sure all the ink has been exposed to the heat.
P.S. Silka took two napkins and sewed them together for a super easy pillow case.
First off, our good friend Michele of Elephant Props is opening her amazing collection of stuff - Eames Shell Chairs, Bitossi Pottery, Shaker Baskets, Vintage Oil Paintings, John Robshaw coverlets, just to name a few! - to the public! We'll be there Tuesday evening, selling our wares and enjoying the opening buzz... and who are we kidding, we'll probably be back the next day as well!
With warmer weather blowing in, how nice does a sunny gallery-hopping Saturday sound? The Passport to the Arts gallery walk will be held May 4th from 11 - 6pm and we're thrilled to be included. Lotta will be screen printing at Eileen Fisher throughout the day (from 12 - 5pm), available for questions and conversation. It's going to be a blast!

Recently the shipping rates with the US Postal Service have gone up a great deal, especially for international shipping. Actually, it is REAL expensive to ship abroad and we are very sorry about that.
If you do order a bag from overseas (even from Canada) it will cost you $26 to ship, and there will be NO tracking available for the package. If a package happens to get lost in transit we cannot be responsible for it and we cannot replace the goods. It may sound harsh, but it is simply too complicated for us to work around the US Postal System. I wish we could find a better, safer and more cost effective way to ship abroad.
