You may have spied Lucy Carr’s whimsical fabric goods at art markets such as Handmade Arlington, URBN Market Mosaic District and Art on the Avenue. The street fairs are on hold for now, but her sewing machine is still humming. She’s been making face masks by the dozens, and you can shop her patterned Carrhoots totes ($55-$65), makeup bags ($38) and storage baskets ($40 and up) at facebook.com/carrhootshomemade and instagram.com/carrhoots, and at The Urban Farmhouse in Arlington’s Bluemont neighborhood.
