These miniature tote bags made by Sara Eden are absolutely gorgeous. They're made from Cath Kidston and Laura Ashley fabrics and are beautifully made. Thank you Sara !
Fabric gift tags ... I bought these from ebay and was amazed at how such a simple idea can look so effective. Again, Cath Kidston fabrics were used.
Heart shaped price tags - another ebay purchase
DIY Brooch Kits by my good friend Sarah at paper-and-string. These will form part of my stock at Monday's craft fair and will also be available to purchase through my website for £4.99. I haven't added them to my site yet, but if you're interested in purchasing one, do please email me.
Sarah also very kindly sent me a little helper - George !! He hasn't been very helpful to date - too busy sunbathing over the weekend me thinks - but will be coming along to the craft fair with me as my lucky mascot ! Let's hope he brings me lots of sales :0) Thank you Sarah x
The craft fair has taken over my life these last couple of weeks. I've been creating and framing new pictures, making felt brooches and hair accessories, designing fliers, printing off packaging, devising price lists, doing practice runs of setting the stall up and this evening have been doing my little grab boxes which all contain a patterned piece of fabric, a piece of colour co-ordinated felt, a selection of colour co-ordinated buttons and ribbons, a needle and some thread. Fingers crossed they will sell well. If you would like details of the craft fair, please click here, and if you do decide to come along, please do introduce yourself - it would be lovely to meet any of my blog readers !
On Wednesday I am off down to Dorset for a "Creative Applique" course with the very talented Willimien Stevens. I am hoping that the course will give me lots of much needed inspiration to create new pictures for my range. These are a few of Willimien's wonderful hand-stitched creations.
Maybe one day I will be able to create pieces as beautiful as these.
And now I am absolutely shattered and off to bed - sweet dreams! zzzzzzzzzzz
