We've had some gorgeous weather this week and its been a pleasure to work on some summery makes in my lovely sunny new kitchen :)
I look forward, as always, to hearing your thoughts!
Remember To Water The Plants!
Its getting to that time of year when potted plants, especially tender young seedlings need regular watering so i thought it would be the perfect time to make some reminder signs...
I've used a nice linen/cotton blend fabric featuring my Watering Seedlings design (available to buy from my Spoonflower shop) for the background, and i've hand embroidered the message on hessian.
The reverse is un-dyed organic cotton and i've used interfacing in between so that the sign holds its shape.
Its completed with a twine hanging string with wooden button embellishments,
and is available now from my Etsy shop priced £9.50.
* I made a stuffed heart version of this last year which was popular but i thought perhaps a sign that hangs flat against a wall might be more practical... time will tell which my lovely customers prefer!
Butterfly Meadow Storage Basket
I've been meaning to add some storage baskets to my shops for a while now, i'm a big fan of pretty and practical makes!
I've used my favourite linen/cotton blend fabric, printed this time with my Butterfly Meadow design in pink and blue (also available from Spoonflower).
The fabric i've used for the lining and base is a gorgeous organic linen which i've fallen in love with and plan to use in lots more projects.
As i'm sure many of you know, baskets like this are super useful for storing away crafty bits and bobs.
I think this one would look fab in a little girls room too, it could be a handy place to keep anything from dolls cloths to hair bands, brushes etc. Its 20cms high and 18cms across at it widest - to give you an idea of capacity it will comfortable hold 20 average sized apples!
This basket is now available from my Etsy shop priced £18 and i have plans to make more to join it soon.
Right now though i'm off to enjoy what's left of a glorious afternoon in the garden...
i'll be back later on for a pleasant evening stroll around Handmade Harbour though... see you there! x
