Infinity Scarves for The Crocker Art Museum Holiday Show

Fall-2013 My infinity scarves are handcrafted using up-cycled sweaters in wool, cotton and acrylic with various fabrics from charmeuse to georgette to luscious silk velvet for the lining. These scarves are easy to wear and each is one of a kind. Click on this to link you to the information for The Crocker Art Museum’s Art & Craft Festival. I’m in the Memorial Hall, Space #125. PLEASE NOTE: This event is held at the Scottish Rite center NOT the museum.

Wearable Art for Fall 2013

Fall-2013-Feathers-&-Wool   This hat was especially fun to make. It features felted      wool with a deep purple chenille band. The embellishment is a grouping of colored feathers perfectly set off with an Italian pewter medallion and beads. This has a larger crown than most of my hats to give great effect to the feathers.

 

Fall-2013   These are some of the hats that I have been crafting for the upcoming Crocker Art Museum’s Holiday Show.  I have been doing a lot with flame sculpted fabric this season as is evident by the flowers enhancing both the read and purple hats.  The black hat and the turquoise hat have vintage applicaques as well as ribbons.  The fabrics on my hats range from cotton to wool to chenille and are all adjustable for a perfect fit.
