Been rather busy sorting out my shop on Folksy so not had chance to post this :D

Not the best layout as of course I forgot to think that far, even though I thought about price cards and whatnot. I was very pleased with the outcome and I have another craft fair in a couple of weeks at the same place.

As you can see I now have a lovely banner at the top of my blog. I'm rather proud of it I must say. The website takes me to my new shop on Folksy I will be adding more bits as time goes on, just wanted to have a few things out their to get started.

Work experience

Just returned from some fabulous work experience. I spent 2 weeks at Sumptuosity they welcomed me into their little hive of business and I tried my best to not slow them down. I think I succeeded in this...hopefully. And after a few days felt like I'd been there for ages. I only wish I could have stayed there longer. They've really helped me see how I need to improve in my machine embroidery skills and plan to spend the rest of the summer trying to do this within my drawing project for uni.

 Here is some of the embroidery I did while at the shop. hopefully they wont mine me putting it on here....I'll add there website link just in case.  you really should check it out, they make some amazing things...and would create anything else you can think of as a special treat.

Few more bits I've made. worked out today that if everything sells that I've made I'll have about £150-£160 which I don'y think is too shabby.

These are headbands, think their quite cute, look good on

Haven't done much with these yet, I could either amke a few more headbands or some badges.

These are sunglasses covers, I love the ones with designs on, I've tried to keep them summery and fun
Recieved my George gift voucher (£30) the other day and guess what....they offered me a work placement too was so happy, so i go there at the end of September, means I practically miss freshers week at University but hey ho it's an opportunity not to be missed

Bits and bobs I've made so far this summer

Here are a few photos of things I've made to sell at an event in Farsley called Swish. It's a clothes swap event thats going to have stalls selling hand crafted items. Hopefully people will like what I've come up with.
Really do love this one, wish I'd of made more like this ^

Not quite sure why these two want to be this way round. but the 'Time for tea' bag is my absolute favourite and its already my best friend :) so I'll be able to see it all the time :)

These are credit card holders, I'm not sure how many will sell, I don't know if people use them but it seemed like a really good idea from my mum so hopefully it will go ok.

Gorgeous photo I took of the flowers at my cousins wedding 
Some of my favourite work from 2nd Year at Uni, photos aren't the best I know but you get the general idea. 
So gutted that I just missed out on a work placement with George @ Asda with this project but it obviously wasn't meant to be. I believe better things are just around the corner!
