fortune cookie finale! February 8, 2009

My tutorial to make a felt fortune cookie and matching ring (the little secret spin-off I hinted about last week) just went up at CraftStylish! If you have a minute to check it out, I’d love to hear what you think. Here’s a look at my set, I do like that little ring…

heartfelt fortune cookies + rings for Valentine's Day!

Speaking of fortune cookies, you can make your own (a glued version like these instead of sewn like mine, play-food-style) at the DIY table at Crafty Wonderland today! Jen of DIY Lounge is leading this cute little make-and-take project with all kinds of fun colors to pick from. Pearl and I are planning on stopping by the sale shortly (I may be only a spectator at the fortune cookie end of things, having recently cranked out several dozen of them) and I can’t wait to see all the cool handmade stuff.

If you go, be sure and stop by Grass Hut across the street to see their Oregon Sesquicentennial art show. It’s awesome. My favorite has to be this portrait by Portland art hero Ryan Berkley!

And speaking of art shows… Kayte mentioned that she’s in a fantastic embroidery show at Gallery Hanahou in New York called Forget-Me-Not, curated by Kristen of Schmancy, one of my favorite Seattle places. I’m hoping to grab a couple of Kayte’s photos to do more of a write-up, the previews I’ve seen look incredible.

Hope you’re having a good Sunday (and that the Blazers do too)!
