Crafts: Brooktrout Originals

Can't bear parting with your kids' super-soft baby blankets or favorite outfits? Textile artist Kelly Johnston can transform them into patchwork quilts, giving you a tactile reminder of those early, sleep-deprived days that you can barely remember anyway. Johnston is a native Vermonter who returned to raise her kids here after 15 years on the West Coast. Her approach is family friendly; she uses organic batting and natural yarns. Best of all, her blankets are washable. Johnston also recently expanded her line to include "recycled chic" handbags and yoga totes. Check out her handiwork at the Bobbin Sew Bar + Craft Lounge in Burlington as well as at Arabesque in Shelburne.

Brooktrout originals: Available now at the Bobbin Sew Bar + Craft Lounge, 299 North Winooski Ave., Burlington. Info, 862-7417. And Arabesque, 5597 Shelburne Road. Info, 985-8732.
