What a busy month so far and it's only the 6th!
Falkland Craft Market on Saturday was a great success, really busy with lots of people coming from afar just for the fair.
I was pleased with my stall as although I had just as much stock as usual, it all seemed to fit better and I sold some of everything so nothing was being over looked or not seen.
I spent last week making, making, making with the result that although I sold a lot, I have plenty left over to stock up my Etsy shop.
I have three of these cuffs for sale at £12 each. They are made using my own handmade felt. Lots of rich texture and colour make each one unique. They are also comfortable to wear and light weight too.
I made this Trinket Box from the same panel of felt. It measures 10 x 0 x 6 cm. The big heart charm helps keep the lid closed.
I love these Felt Heart Pendants and wear one myself at every opportunity.
£24 each complete with chain and voile gift bag.
My Treble Clef Tweed Heart Brooches have been very popular and are great fun to make. I love choosing the colours and seeing them all together like this.
I only have one of each colour above available this week. £12 each. I will be making more for my next events though.
I have lots of new printed cards in stock. All are available individually and some in sets of four or six.
Set of six printed cards £12
Set of Four Printed Cards £8
One thing I am really short of just now is original felt pictures. I sold quite a few last month and have only had time to make a couple recently.
This picture below is a composition I have been wanting to try for a long time. I had the frame left over from Open Studios and I'm really pleased with the way it has turned out.
I'm planning to have Bookmarks made from prints of the design.
'Ard Beag' meaning Small Rise
All of the above are available in my Etsy shop here
Below is a new line that I am hoping to make available soon. It's a printed cushion featuring one of my felt landscapes. As with all my printed products, the quality of the print shows up the fibres and stitches used in the original picture, making it hard to tell that it is a print.
If I go ahead with this idea, the cushions will be available to order online only. I won't actually have any cushions in stock. You will be able to choose your design for the back and front, choose the size and fabric and have them sent directly to you from the company that makes them. You can also have them sent as a gift which is a great idea.
