Oh my! I am so excited to introduce Birgitte to you! She is an amazing textile artist and shop owner of SewDanish. I was stopped in my tracks when I saw this beautiful coiled woven bowl made of fabric. Of course I immediately checked out the rest of the shop. Among other cool finds was a vintage cloth journal cover made from a vintage hand embroidered tablecloth and a small flower pouch bag made of corduroy and velvet flowers.
You definitely need to jump on over to http://www.sewdanish.etsy.com/ and see what she has. There are so many gift ideas flowing from this shop! And then when you're done there, I suggest going to http://omshantihandcrafts.wordpress.com/2008/09/04/an-interview-with-birgitte-of-sew-danish/ to read all about Birgitte and her work. Amazing work Birgitte!
