I will be "chatting" a bit about my intentions for this year with P&B and also what I have been working on and what's new.
My first market of the year was the Lady Luck Festival which is a celebration of vintage fashion, music, and custom culture. The top of the Main Street is closed off and vintage cars are in display. It rained....then rained some more on the day so I didn't leave the shelter of my stall gazebo much, apart from darting across to purchase some records from Rolling Records, a Katoomba based mobile record shop.
So therefore I didn't wonder around the market to take pictures, so I have borrowed some photos from the awesome local band The Honey Stompers https://www.facebook.com/The-Honey-Stompers-220656504689798/?fref=photo.
My mind is already full of new bag designs and products I want to make. I am really looking forward to making a new range of autumn / winter accessories with wools, corduroys and up cycled tartan skirts.
Just like a lot of sewers and crafters who love fabrics, I won't always be able to resist wonderful new fabrics, but at least I will also be using my existing fabrics and reducing the carbon footprint a little.
The latest edition to my etsy shop is these cute shawl pins. They are designed to hold your shawl or scarf pins in place, but can also been worn on your handknit sweater or cardigan as a brooch. I have made them in a variety of colours, and have knitted a wool cord, wound into a mini ball of wool and attached them to the end of the pin. They can be purchased at market stalls, The Nook at Leura or here in my store https://www.etsy.com/shop/PoppyandBelle?section_id=18458289&ref=shopsection_leftnav_5.
