Two local ladies held a handmade crafters fair in the local scout hall recently. When the notice came through the door to publicise it I was pleased that crafters from my village were getting together to organise something like this. At the same time, I was a bit envious not to be part of it.
Holly Pop Cakes who, as the name suggests, specialises in Pop Cakes but also makes characterful dolls under the name Lula Dolls.
Elsie Rag Bag who mainly concentrates on making household furnishings and accessories with jewellery as a side-line.
At home I gathered together all that I've made so far and made a note of other things I could make, if I have time. To start with, I made a few small, quick items (the pin cushions above). They still need to have centre buttons added before they're finished. I hope to get a few zipped pouches made next if I can find enough suitable zips in my stash.
Progress since last time:
Pin cushions above - now finished with buttons added.
Trying my hand at a knitted lampshade after my auntie gave me a few frames.
Have picked out fabrics and zips for pouches.
Bye for now
