I just received my goodies from The Sampler for the month of May.

Behold Phil the Octopus. This is an iron-on fabric patch created using an old fashioned typewriter. As you may be able to read in the pic, the artist’s sister Christine Renee uses these designs on her designs, available at Re-Conceived.
