I just revamped my craft corner and it was missing a little something, so I decided to stitch a piece of inspiration.



The pattern is "Craft Revolution" by Urban Threads.  It had a stiffer propaganda feel to it, but I took it in a wonkier handmade direction.  I didn't stress about my stitches being perfectly formed or staying perfectly with the pattern (very freeing) and I fused some scraps from my reproduction fabric stash onto the background to make it a little more playful.  My desk has lots of orange and green accessories and I had more lavender fabrics than anything else, so I went with it.  The pattern offers a lot of possibilities for colors, stitches, etc.

Thanks for looking!
