You Never Know Where Your Art Will Take You

Last year I had a few burlap bags to sell at the  February Renningers Extravaganza. I used some of my vintage copper stencils and got to work. I took some to the Fancy Flea and now I'm known for having a wide variety of designs on burlap. I can do other fabrics and pieces instead of bags but my favorite material is burlap bags.

I always loved the look of burlap but never thought I would be working with so much of it. One day before my burlap mania started, I saw a magazine article featuring what what was frankly a terrible stencilling job. I knew I could do better and pulled out my vintage collection  and got to work. I haven't stopped.

I'll have a collection of my bags and pillow forms at the Fancy Flea next Saturday {November 3, 2012}  right next to Robyn Story Designs on Kentucky Avenue in Lakeland, Florida. I invite you to stop by. If you buy some burlap that will be all right too.
