I’ve been featured…
in kleinformat! It’s an Austrian magazine with a great DIY, design, kid’s craft kind of vibe.
Oliver + S did a great review on it here.
I am pleased as pie to be apart of such a beautiful magazine.
Love this center fold of art.
And there’s me!
I can hardly believe it. I had been in contact with them earlier this year, so I knew this was going to happen, but to see it in actual print is totally different. Almost surreal to me.
They featured my Easy Knit Produce Bags.
If I may, I’d like to tell the quick story behind these bags.
It was May 2011 and Kojodesigns and I were doing the first round of Color Your Summer. Which was originally Color My Summer…but that’s another story. :) I had planned to make up a crochet pattern for a reusable produce bag. After a morning of unsuccessful attempts…it was just not happening. My ability was just not matching up with my creativity, which happens more than I would like to admit. I had to get the project done quickly. It was a week before the post was due, but I had some other things going on and had to get it done that weekend. As I often do, I gave myself a day to do a project that should really require a week. I was feeling the pressure. I was almost ready to scratch it, until…the idea to sew a produce bag instead of crochet it popped into my head. It seriously felt like a light bulb had clicked on.
I could suddenly see clearly what I wanted to do and, most importantly, could do.. In a matter of an hour, I figured out how to make the first bag. Then, deciding there must be an even easier way using my rotary cutter, I made a half a dozen more.
As I quickly snapped the pictures to have my post ready in time, I had no idea they would end up in a magazine a year later. I could never have imagined that what was almost a craft fail, would become one of my most favorite, most popular projects.
I really needed this reminder, because I am in the middle of a very frustrating project at the moment! :)
I hope I haven’t come off as obnoxious. Thank you for allowing me to share this small success with you.
I hope you’re having a beautiful day.
It’s double beautiful for Kimberly who has won the eMeals giveaway!
