Make Art That Sells Part B – Week 2 – Children's Apparel

Zipping right along here! Just finished week 2 of Make Art That Sells part B which was all about the children's apparel market. It just so happened to be the week I was most interested in and unfortunately I was out of town. That's my luck for you! I have no experience in this market and would love to learn more about it. This weeks theme was all about camping. I knew I wanted to come up with a twist on the theme, so after days of sketching out tents, logs, vintage thermoses, and cute cuddly bears, I came up with the idea of little wee woodland fairies "camping" in the woods. I love the idea so much! I got back from my trip with 2 hours to draw, scan, and digitize before having to turn it in!

This is my final piece, I am so happy with what I came up with in the short amount of time. Pretty thrilled!


Mary Janes

shoes1 Yep, more patterns! I bought my 14 month old daughter her first pair of "real" shoes yesterday. She has been walking since she was 11 months old (oh dear), but since it was during the winter she really didn't need a pair of shoes. I also have to add that her feet are so fat, that she did not fit into any shoes. Especially the cute red Toms my aunt bought her when she was born. I finally gave in and found the cutest pair of mary jane tennis shoes for her to stomp around in. I put them on her and she already figured out how to unvelcro. I might have to get buckles next time!
