PUBLISHED






I have been very excited to receive the latest GreenCraft Magazine, especially because one of my burlap pillows has been featured in it. I absolutely love and adore this publication - it showcases recycled and reusable materials made into inspiring new things. I answered a call for pillows made from burlap and they chose my bird themed cushion for their pages - many thanks GreenCraft!!

It is a real honor to have my work selected and showcased for other "garbage" enthusiasts to enjoy and hopefully glean inspiration. There is a full write up with detailed instrucions on how to create your very own burlap pillow. These coffee sacks and shiny plastic coffee packaging has become a favourite material to create with. The twist ties (used for the birds legs and table legs) were from our local grocery store (again, free supplies). I also like to incorporate bits and pieces that I've collected or found and are just laying about my (messy) studio.

I encourage everyone to purchase this latest edition of GreenCraft magazine - it is full of projects and beautiful photography and will provide hours of inspired reading.
