Plenty

This time of year, when my tummy is full and the pantry is packed for the winter, I think to myself, “I have plenty.” I have so much to be grateful for: a warm home, a healthy family, rewarding work. So during this season of reflection, I remind myself that indeed I have plenty, and hope the same for you. 

Homemade Dilly Beans, ready for the pantry.

But we all know that the holidays can also be a time of excess and craziness. I try to balance this with making gifts for loved ones. I’ve put together a wool felt DIY ornament project to share with you all; more Kata Golda holiday projects can be found on Creativebug.

"Star with Pocket" Ornament

This cute little star makes a great gift and can be personalized with a name or phrase. It might hold a note or gift card, be a holiday keepsake ornament, or hang on a door knob. Not just for the holidays, this star can be made in any color you choose — extending the joy it brings all year round.







STITCHES YOU’LL USE:

  • Double running stitch
  • Whip stitch
  • Blanket stitch
Unfamiliar with these stitches or just need a refresher? Download Kata Golda’s Guide to Basic Stitches [PDF].

MATERIALS YOU’LL NEED:

  • A print-out of Kata Golda’s Star Ornament template [PDF]
  • Two 5" x5" pieces of wool felt, to make the star
  • One 3" x 2 1/4" piece of wool felt, to make the pocket
  • One 10" x 1/2" piece of wool felt (or ribbon/yarn), to make the ornament’s loop
  • Embroidery floss (This thread is 6-ply and is easily separated; most patterns use 1–3 plies.)
  • Stuffing (Recycled polyester fiberfill or wool works best.)

TOOLS YOU’LL NEED:

  • Fabric scissors (to cut the felt)
  • Paper scissors (to cut the paper template)
  • Hand sewing needle (sharp and with a large enough eye to thread embroidery floss)

INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP 1

Print out the template and cut the shapes out of the paper.

STEP 2

Use the template pieces to cut the shapes from the felt. Cut your loop as well (from felt or ribbon/yarn).

STEP 3

Stitch name, initial, word, or design on the pocket using 2-ply embroidery floss.

STEP 4

Sew a double running stitch to the top of the pocket. (This is done to keep the pocket from losing its shape). Center the pocket on the front piece of a star and whip stitch it on.

STEP 5

To assemble the ornament lay the front of star (with pocket), facing up, on top of the star’s back. Make sure they match up. Sandwich the loop material between the two layers at the top of the star, and start blanket stitching at that top point. (You will be attaching the loop with these starting stitches.)

STEP 6

Continue blanket stitching the star edges together until you are about 2" away from finishing.

STEP 7

Stuff the star and finish blanket stitching to the end. Secure with a knot.

NOTES & TIPS:

  • I like to hand sew with a piece of thread that is about 18" long. (Longer lengths are frustrating to work with as they tangle easily.)
  • To separate the 6-ply floss, I start in the middle of the floss strand I’ve cut and gently, slowly pull off 2 strands (together at the same time).
  • To make your stitched letters land where you want them to, draw your words or design on your pocket template piece. Use this drawing as a guide when stitching, making sure the letters are falling in the same place you drew them on the template.
  • Try to keep the stitch depth and length consistent. When whip stitching the pocket on, and assembling the star with the blanket stitch, I make my stitch length and depth between 1/8" – 1/4".
  • When adding stuffing I like to do small bits at a time, making sure to get into the star’s points.
  • Need felt? Bundles of wool felt squares are available from KataGolda.com and include ten sheets of 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" hand-dyed felt (enough to make five “Star with Pocket” ornaments). The felt varies in content from 100% to 70% wool (the other 30% is rayon, also a natural fiber), and has been tested by Consumer Testing Laboratories and found to be child safe.

P.S. Is it any coincidence that my favorite new cookbook of the year is Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi? It will keep me warm and fed this winter.

Kata Golda Tutorials Now Available on Creativebug

Image/video courtesy of Creativebug. © 2012
In October's newsletter we announced Kata Golda's new partnership with Creativebug, a growing resource of online craft workshops by notable designers. Kata Golda founder Alison Kaplan recently spent a week at their studio in San Francisco, filming tutorials for new DIY felt sewing projects.

One of the videos, a tree advent calendar, is now available for viewing on Creativebug. The other — a fox holiday stocking — will become available later today (11/15/12). Each is carefully crafted, walking you through step-by-step instructions as Alison demonstrates how to sew each project using felt and thread.

As companion pieces to these tutorials, we've put together a materials kit for each project that contains the right amount of soft, wool felt and cotton embroidery floss needed to create the handmade item. The "Fox Stocking" Materials Kit is available for $43.00; the "Tree Advent Calendar" Materials Kit ($52.00) also includes a metal ring from which to hang the calendar.

AT HOME: CELEBRATING AUTUMN

FROM ALISON KAPLAN, FOUNDER OF KATA GOLDA

We have always loved the image of the apple tree around here… it appeared in a lot of my daughter's early drawings, and continues to live on my embroidered journals, bags, and mugs. The little burst of red the apple trees have this time of year is still one of my favorite fall color inspirations.



The old apple tree right outside my kitchen window doesn't produce much fruit these days, but it brings so many birds to the yard that I can't stand the idea of removing it. So I planted a new tree a few years ago and attached my hopes to it… and it worked! It has provided a few gems each season — but this year, even after pruning the branches, the tree hangs heavy to the ground, full of apples. So we eat a lot of pie.


Coming to fruition at the same time are my impossibly dense pie pumpkins. At this time of year, as the giant leaves die back, they begin to show themselves. They are my seasonal indicator to jump-start into autumn decorating.


To create a fall center piece I collected maple leaves, gathered branches, and chose a color palette for my felt and thread. I drew the leaf's outline and veins on tracing paper, and stitched the key lines (using a contrasting thread color) through the paper and felt. I then removed the paper and finished stitching the rest of the lines, adding a stem on the felt. Once done I cut out the shape, keeping close to the leaf and stem edges.

Finally, I wrapped the leaf stem and branch together with thread and tied a knot. For some leaves I made an additional stitch near the top, which I then tied off around the branch — keeping them from flopping over. Gathered into a jar and paired with a fresh baked apple pie and some fall-themed plush projects, these branches make the kitchen table a hard place to resist.




If you're looking for felt for your projects, Kata Golda's bag of wool felt scraps offers an assortment of colors and sizes — but if you're looking for a specific color palette, try the wool felt squares.


Enjoy the golden light of the season!

~Kata Golda

New Kata Golda Newsletter & Summer Give-Away

SUMMER 2012 EDITION

Summer has brought much activity and change here at Kata Golda. In mid-May the new 2012–2013 collection made its public debut in NYC at the National Stationery Show, complete with a new print catalog and website. It was great to put faces to names and reunite with friends and clients, many of which I've not seen in awhile. As always, NYC treated Kata Golda very kindly.

Kata Golda's booth (#1666) at the National Stationery Show, May 2012
(See more photos)

And so in an effort to keep in better touch with all of you, my blog (Little Notes from Kata Golda) is evolving into this new format — a newsletter aimed to inform you about new products, seasonal specials, and give-aways. Just like the old blog, the newsletter will also include a glimpse behind the scenes of Kata Golda, as well DIY projects designed to inspire some creative work of your own.

Whether you are a new fan, longtime customer, wholesale client, publicist, or blog writer, I hope you find this newsletter helpful and enjoyable. It will only be sent out occasionally (about once a month or so), supplemented by posts on Facebook and Twitter. Constructive feedback is always welcome, and you can update or change your subscription at anytime using the links at the bottom of the newsletter.

TIME FOR WORK AND PLAY


It takes copious amounts of time and patience to come to a place where you see the fruits of your labor. Farming and gardening are my role models for how I want to live a creative life and nurture the growth of Kata Golda.

Creating this new catalog felt a lot like cultivating a garden: deciding on which favorites to include in a limited space, pruning out things that just aren’t fruitful anymore, trying to guess what the seasons will bring in a new landscape. Just like the farmers I volunteer with every week (in exchange for a big basket of produce — yum!), I rely on long lists to keep me on track, prioritizing tasks based on the weather forecast (literally, as I love nothing more than to sit in the sun and stitch).

So when it came time to create the photo for the new catalog's front cover, it seemed perfectly fitting to show the garden pals and bunny stuffed companion working in the farm's greenhouse, surrounded by crops.


Equally inspiring to my work is the untamed landscape of the Olympic Mountains where I choose to play this time of year. I spent a few days backpacking there last week, feeling very contained (having all I need to keep me warm and fed in my pack) and tremendously small. It is vast and it is humbling, and a great reminder for me to honor, respect and defend the awe-inspiring magic it holds.


I hope a little bit of this magic comes through in the latest Kata Golda collection. In it you’ll find a trove of new items: a new series of DIY kits, pillows, letterpress printed cards and gift tags, interactive wall hangings (shown below), shoulder bags, and more.



You’ll also find old favorites such as personalized felt patch photo albums, stuffed companions and ceramic tea cups. But I’m most excited by the products that were inspired by my love of nature and gardening — and what better time of year to explore the outdoors than summer time?

— Alison Kaplan

Press Release: Kata Golda to Launch New Product Line at National Stationery Show

May 7, 2012

Kata Golda Launches New Product Line;
Returns to National Stationery Show

Following a five-year respite from trade and gift shows, Kata Golda returns to the National Stationery Show in 2012 with a new product line and expanded offerings. Kata Golda founder Alison Kaplan will be on hand at the New York event May 20-23 to display the iconic dolls and photograph albums she has been known for in the last decade, in addition to freshly launched DIY kits, letterpress-printed cards, interactive play mats and a line of accessories geared toward design-minded adults. VIEW POST CARD

Living the DIY Life
Kaplan has spent the past five years branching into new creative endeavors. She wrote “Kata Golda’s Hand-Stitched Wool Felt:25 Whimsical Sewing Projects”, published by STC Craft in 2009, followed by two interactive children's book projects:  “Stories for Bedtime:A Keepsake Pocket and Tales to Cherish” and “Tooth Fairy Keepsake: Under-the-Pillow Pocket and Memory Book” for Chronicle Books in 2011. She has also been drawing inspiration for her new line of products from the quiet, mossy, seaside town where she lives. “Spending time outdoors—gardening, sketching, observing—has informed my new work,” she says. “My love of growing food, and hiking give me the space, both mentally and physically, to create things truly inspired by nature.”

Kata Golda is an independently owned company based in Port Townsend, Washington. Kaplan started Kata Golda in 1999 and has grown her company in response to the explosion of interest in crafting and DIY. Having arrived early on the crafting scene, Kaplan has witnessed major changes in the industry, including the shift from “bricks and mortar” retail to online commerce, the surge in social media, blogging and other networking and marketing tools, and the increased accessibility of low cost materials and labor abroad. Kata Golda adapted to the digital age as an early seller on websites such as Etsy, Gilt and Fab, but Kaplan stayed true to her vision of using high-quality materials and well-paid hand labor to create her products. She currently employs ten artisans on the West Coast for projects such as felt and canvas dying, design work, stitching, throwing pottery, graphics, letterpress printing and photography. Her commitment to “low-impact” production includes re-using scraps and choosing organic, natural and recycled fibers.

Kata Golda has been recognized by the Wall Street Journal Gift Guide, GOOP, Design Sponge, Babble, LMNOP, Travel and Leisure Family,  InStyle Magazine, Mothering Magazine,  Victoria, Country Living,  Where Women Create, Chicago and myriad celebrity customers.

Last Day to Order for Easter

Kata Golda Easter Collection


It's just a little over a week until Easter… which means today (3/30/12) is the last day to order gifts from Kata Golda and receive them in time to add them to your Easter basket.

Looking for a unique gift idea for adults? These hand-made stoneware tea cups with an illustration of a bunny become sophisticated Easter baskets when filled with jelly beans or yummy chocolates. Or fill them with straw and make nest for this baby bird, made from hand-dyed wool felt.


I also have some newer, limited edition items available on Etsy — and letterpress afficionados will be happy to know that there are still many spring-themed letterpress printed photo albums on sale at more than 50% off the original price!

And, as always, you can shop from the full collection of Easter-themed handmade cards, photo albums, and plush toys on katagolda.com. 

Whatever your fancy, I hope you find something you like… or are perhaps inspired to make something yourself.

NOW ON SALE: Letterpress Printed Photo Albums


My oh my, it's been awhile! I bet you're wondering where I've been and what I've been up to.

To say I've been busy doesn't even begin to cover it. But those of you that follow me on Facebook and Twitter know that I've introduced some new items on Etsy recently, and that I've been busy working on new DIY felt sewing kits — as well as my new collection. It seems like work on it will never end, but I can promise that there is light at the end of the tunnel. (I say that as much for you as I do for me!) 

The new Kata Golda 2012-2013 collection will be revealed in its entirety at the 2012 National Stationery Show in New York City this coming May. Kata Golda's booth is #1666 — we'll be right next to our friends at Egg Press! If you have plans to attend, please swing by for a visit.

As I begin to roll out items from this new collection, I'm also discontinuing items that I'll no longer be offering. Translation:

SALE! 

Bunny Couple Letterpress Printed Photo Album

Right now, in the Kata Golda Etsy Boutique, I'm offering over 50% off on letterpress printed photo albums that were originally introduced in my 2007 collection. These hard-cover photo albums measure 8x8 inches and feature:
  • Illustrations on the front cover, printed by hand in dark brown ink using a vintage Chandler & Price letterpress
  • Cotton Japanese book cloth (the letterpress albums I currently offer use hand-dyed canvas)
  • 50 blank, soft white, acid-free pages with interleaving — this is so that your album does not over-expand past the spine once you add photos to it. 
  • A pack of photo corners so that you can add photos or other items (ticket stubs, love notes, birth announcements) of any size to wherever you want on the page. There is also plenty of room to add handwritten captions on the pages.
  • A variety of designs, many of which would make great gifts for parents and grandparents: 
Boy with Birds Letterpress Printed Photo Album
Mouse Family Letterpress Printed Photo Album
Girl with Teddy Bear Letterpress Printed Photo Album
Lamb Pull Toy Letterpress Printed Photo Album

The original price on these albums was $78.00 — now on sale for only $40.00. The amount of albums I have available varies; once they're gone, they're gone!
