Unique and Affordable Handcrafted Gifts

Gift giving is so much fun, especially when you can find something that is both unique and affordable. Unfortunately, these two aspects do not often coincide. But I found some beautiful and affordable gifts created by a local artist at Baltimore's 2012 ArtScape. 

I wandered into JennyJen's booth to check out her handcrafted items. Her bird themed creations are adorable, whimsical fabric crafts guaranteed to make any gift recipient smile. Of course she offered more expensive and elaborate items as well. 

The quilted designs of her potholders feature her locally famous birdy-birds appliqued on vintage style fabrics. They would made lovely hostess gifts, housewarming gifts, or something special for a bridal shower. 

I bought a little zippered bag, handy for travel or just keeping stuff in. And if I really wanted to be cheep-cheep, she was selling birdy-bird iron on patches to decorate clothing, back-packs or just about anything.
