February Round Up

March 2, 2014

What an enjoyable and productive February it has been. I continue to feel very excited about being in this March’s Reloved magazine, published in February. It’s been great having positive feedback. I am chuffed the article has prompted conversations between people and the creative folk they have been inspired and nurtured by.

I am also particularly delighted to have made items for the home and designed some new bags and products for my Etsy shop.

Etsy Shop 2.14

A tweed bag, sewing sets, knitting needle cases, and leather clutches added to my shop. Sales have continued to come in for the knitting needle cases, but much to my delight I have sold a man’s messenger bag. I love it when an upcycled bag sells:)

And for the home a knit dress , CD Coasters, and an art smock.

This month I have discovered the delight of a rotary cutter, how did I live without one? If you have never used one I highly recommend it, so much easier to cut fabric rectangles and squares gaining right angles:) Thanks Elizabeth for the loan and then trade of rotary cutter & bag:)

I hope you have had a creative week, as usual I am popping by Handmade Harbour  to see what other people have been creating:)

    Well done. I do like the look of your tweed bag in the photo. I got a rotary cutter and mat for my birthday, and have found them both really useful.

    Congratulations on being featured in Reloved. I bet you could fill a whole magazine yourself with all your wonderful revamped makes. Your tweed bag looks wonderful. I really like the pleated design.
