If you live in Atlanta, be sure to come out this Thursday for Kraftwork at Young Blood Gallery from 7-10pm. This event takes place on the first Thursday of each month and is sponsored by the Indie Craft Experience.
This week, I will be there with my six-year-old who has designed her very own set of animal softies, Eva’s Art Sewing. Around the beginning of the year, she started asking me (repeatedly) if she could have a job. So we came up with this plan. She’s the designer and I’m the laborer. I wanted to encourage her entrepreneurial spirit, so we’re donating half of the proceeds to the World Wildlife Fund and I’m letting her keep half to buy art supplies. We would really love it if you can come out to see us!
Here’s a photo of her horse. She drew the design, then I digitized it for the embroidery machine, we sewed it and stuffed it. Eva created the background scenery for this photo.
