Thought it was time for a bit of a round up of what I’ve finished. One of the many fabulous things about blogging is that when I feel like I’m being massively underproductive I can see that I’ve actually achieved quite a lot! Over the weekend I finished this commissioned art wrap:
The fabrics are from the My Happy Nursery collection from Cloud 9. Please excuse the poor condition of the props in the 2nd photo – I had to filch all these from Tom’s pencil case… I can see that I am going to have to buy some nice pristine ones for photographic purposes.
Whilst I’m on the subject, I have this prototype art wrap that I made as part of the design process for the above… actually, to be frank, it’s the 2nd prototype… The first version (which I managed to make upside down!) is going to be chopped up and recycled.. But this one is pretty good, and although I wont put it in my official shop (there’s a couple of tiny bits of wonky stitching..), it seems a shame to attack it with scissors. If you are interested in buying it (less than half price, £8 incl. P&P), the just get in touch – veryberryhandmade (at) gmail (dot) com. There’s room for an A5 pad and around 18-20 pencils/pens.
I also got asked to make some mini coin purses – here they all are.
The fabrics here are Echino (red pig) and some recycled denim.
This time it’s Erin McMorris Flower Pop and Alexander Henry Crosshatch.
This one is some lovely Kokka owls, and a very useful Alexander Henry fabric called Heath.
Would love to know what this fabric is, if anyone knows. Jane very kindly sent it to me as part of the most recent Scrap Swap (and then she sent me some more, which was even kinder!!), and there’s more recycled denim. Here’s the reverse with a little bit of embroidery, just for fun..
It’s gone to a friend’s little boy – he now has a great way to carry his tuck (do kids still have tuck??) money!
Would love to see what you’ve been making recently – feel free to leave links in the comments. I need to see some creative loveliness to distract me from this awful wet autumn!
