Second pencil case experiment all finished! This is made out of some calico I dyed with redcurrants, & as soon as I saw the delicate colour I knew I wanted to do something floral. This design is actually inspired by the first piece of original embroidery I ever did (you can see that here), & it was a lot fun updating that (& adding sequins to it – but when are sequins not fun?!)
I have lots of ideas & plans for more of these, with the ultimate aim of getting the standard of my sewing & finish to a point where I would feel comfortable listing some original pieces in my Etsy shop. So keep an eye out for that!
It’s that time of year when all the veg seeds are being sown & some seedlings are starting to come through. I’m still waiting on some pepper & sunflower plants to make an appearance, so fingers crossed!
Happy Easter lovely people! I love this time of year, I find it really motivating as everything starts to get some colour back into it and we actually get some sun (though today has been a bit miserable and grey, but this is the UK so…). Hope you get to enjoy the long weekend – I have a few plans for it, but we’ll see if they work out!
For the next few days this Easter card will have 20% off until I take the listing down, so if you feel like being super-organised & jumping ahead of next year you can find it here
This year’s Easter design is now available here in my Etsy shop as a greetings card! There is just over a week to go so if you order now from the UK then they’ll be just in time. There are also still some free badges to get your hands on as a little thank you to my first 10 customers, but the number is dropping so do be quick if you’d like one. The shop has been open for just over a week now & it’s been a real learning curve but very exciting too. I really would love to hear what you think of how it’s looking, so don’t be shy!
