I almost always make completely one-of-a-kind art/clothing/accessories/etc. I like figuring stuff out and trying something new, which usually means I try something new for every single project.
This one-of-a-kind model of creation is great, but I’ve been doing it for so long, I can feel myself getting antsy. Essentially, it isn’t completely fulfilling my need to continue to try new things.
So, I tried something new: I made more than one of something.
I’m not dabbling in mass production or anything, but I did create five or six of these adorable wall hangings. I love them. They are appliqued and quilted. I liked the original challenge of figuring the layout, the freestyle embroidery for the brains, the fabrics, the applique stitching, etc. Additionally, I enjoyed the challenge of creating the item again and again.
I’ve put these adorable wall-hangings from my ‘making multiples’ challenge up for sale in my shop. They look great on a range of wall colors (I’ve got quite the color palette in house, and I didn’t find a wall it looked bad on), and they make great gifts!
