The Boston Marathon
is in 4 days and I could not be more excited to cheer on all 36,000 people running on Monday! With so many Boston Marathon themed items in shops all over the city and online, I wanted to highlight a few handmade goodies I've come across that were inspired by the infamous upcoming race-
This gorgeous 2014 Boston Marathon Print
is by my friend Jenn of JHill Design
which is part of her Sports Map series. Through April 31, get FREE personalization- just order the personalized print and use code RUN2014 at checkout. Include the year or the runner's time, runner's name and bib number.
Bev Feldman of Linkouture
designed this lovely chaimaille bracelet
complete with handmade runner charm. Bonus- she's donating 20% of sales of the bracelet to the One Fund
I discovered this print in a blog post
by the designer, Lindsay of Warren Tales, that said she was inspired by my Boston Marathon photo project
- I was so flattered! I love the fun font and concept of this marathon route print which she is offering as a 9x16"
and as notecards
Running the marathon? Stop by Old South Church
on Boylston Street and get a handmade scarf! The Old South Knitters group started a Marathon Scarf Project
this year asking knitters to donate handmade scarves in the BAA
yellow and blue for the athletes. As they said on their website, "In this year of Remembrance and Hope, our vision is to wrap each runner in the love poured into stitches of handmade blue and yellow scarves. We promise to wrap runners in your love until all your scarves are distributed."
