Handcrafted Blankets & Pillows by Fish Eye Sisters



Jen Manuell, of Fish Eye Sisters, has a good thing going.
The color combinations in her camp blankets are so striking! 
Based in Canada, Jen hand-dyes the wool fabric she uses.
Can't you just feel the cozy warmth?

I was so bowled over by Jen's crafty lineage, I had to share this portion of her bio:
(emphasis mine)

"Jen comes from a long line of talented craftspeople and artisans – 
on both sides of her family. A fourth generation fine craft fibre artist, 
Jen's paternal great-grandfather was a tailor in England, and 
maternal great-grandmother a rug hooker and handspinner
her Nanna smocked dresses for her as a girl, and 
her Gramma (Muriel R. Smith) was a rug hooker and painter
Jen's mother (Mary Manuell) is best known for her handspinning and weaving."

Now, that's an impressive group of ancestors 
from whom she draws talent & inspiration!

Jen knits, sews, quilts, does rug hooking, embroidery, beading, and applique work.
Hats off to you, Jen! You're a multi-talented artist with tons of creativity!

The blanket above is called Georgian Bay.
I'm excited to show off my favorite Fish Eye Sisters' creations!
