Hand Knit Scarves and Bags by Jill Bent

Over the weekend I went into Boston to attend Design Salon’s annual Holiday Sale. I met some of my favorite designers I have discovered through blogs and etsy. Jill Bent creates beautiful handmade pillows, sachets, scarves, bags, and clothes pin dolls (above). Each piece is skillfully constructed in vintage fabrics and sumptuous natural yarns. Jill is the sweetest and I can’t wait to learn more about her through her blog: 36shea.blogspot.com. Buy her goods online at: jillbent.etsy.com.

I’ve spent some late nights online eyeing Carta’s beautiful ribbons imported from Italy (below). How can one resist scrolling alphabet ribbon? Carta recently introduced a new line of cards depicting the scrolling alphabet ribbon; cards are available as sets online through her etsy shop. Carta is run by talented book designer Angela Liguori, check out her blog for more beautiful inspiration: angelaliguori.blogspot.com.

Both of these lovely ladies will be showing their wares at multiple shows in the Boston area through December. Check out their blogs for more information.
