Gettin' Made: Pictures from Yesterday's Patchwork Show
It was such a great day at Patchwork in Santa Ana on Sunday! It was beautiful out, so hot the backs of my knees were crazy-sweaty (too much information?), and amazing handmade crafts were in abundance! New this time around was the shutting down of Buffalo Street to make room for a more spacious booth layout, which I loved.
After the jump, check out more pictures and get the scoop on the next Patchwork show.
|Literary Necklaces and Scrabble Charms by Found and Made Designs|
Found and Made's booth was great, so much vintage ephemera to get lost in! These Literary Necklaces really drew me in like a good book should!
|KB Van Horn of Kokoleo waves hello from her booth|
It was bittersweet seeing KB at the Kokoleo booth yesterday - we've done many a craft show together, and I recently learned she and her family are moving to Seattle at the end of the month. I'm sad to see her go, but I know big things are on the horizon for her - I'm super excited to talk to her for an OC Weekly post in the future about the crafty scene up north!
|Succulent plant terrarium by Lexi Lee of LIttle Bit|
Succulents are a big trend in craftiness right now, and I completely loved seeing Lexi's take on it yesterday - she had a whole slew of planters that had little creatures worked in (like the dinosaur pictured above), that just kinda transformed the planters into little fantastical worlds. Translation: SUPERCUTE.
|Siamese Fencing League t-shirt by Maiden Voyage Clothing|
I can't lie. I really want one of these shirts. I was digging everything in the Maiden Voyage Clothing booth - really vintage feeling graphics with a humorous vibe, something I can always get behind.
|Tin Can Skulls by Rawbone Studio|
These folk arty Day of the Dead style skulls are so much fun - I love that they're made from recycled tin cans, too! Small pieces of art like this are great because you don't have to commit one entire wall to one piece - you can assemble different colors and pieces together to create a really vibrant fun art wall in your house!
