Folksy Friday - Patchwork Showcase

For this week I would like to highlight some of the talented Patchwork crafters on Folksy. A topic was started on the forums by Audreys Cat, so I hope she doesnt mind my using her idea. Dont forget, to admire the work of the crafter further you simply click on the picture to be magically transported to their shop on Folksy.

I will begin with Audreys Cat, and her pretty patchwork cushion - she also has some great patchwork fabric on sale in her shop.

Another lovely cushion here from Craftysewsew

Auntyjoan had this lovely card in her shop, but since making out my list it has sold - but no worries there are other similar cards stil for sale, and also great personalised plaques (I know as I bought one)

ShabbybySharon, has this amazing quilt shown here with the matching tote bag which is also available

luvlii, has this great cushion set in her shop

hjdcrafts has a wonderful cosy throw

An upcycled theme here from JDArt with one of her patchwork bags

Yet more upcycling from Dharmaflyer with her fantastic peace cushion

Lynwood Crafts has this very smart backpack in her shop

From Beehoneydesigns a silk patchwork bag, most unique

Lastly from here at Bags of Swank by SimJaTa, a gorilla and her baby

..and also what is known as a 'cheater' patchwork fabric, looks like patchwork but isnt, just a bright cheery fabric

Quite a large selection I know, and these are just the people who added to the topic on Folksy. For these and many other talents for the unique, handcrafted gift dont forget to visit Folksy for your gifts and personal treats. Make yourself and the ones you love happy.

Have a Great weekend.
