  1. Printed Crochet

    Posted on

    Before Christmas one of the things I was using to create prints were knitted and crocheted samples.

    First they became sheep ornaments.

    Then my favourites started appearing on coloured felt and being turned into bags.

    The next print that will become a bag is taken from the Trienne shawl by Rachel Atkinson

    I love how much detail the print captures. There’s something rather lovely about how the print changes between sections even though it’s a simple stitch pattern.

    Many thanks to Rachel for letting me use her pattern in this way.

    The bags made with this print will be in the shop update on Friday 15th January.

  2. Screen Printed Felt Bags

    Posted on

    A few days ago I blogged about a very lucky find – some 100% wool felt.

    Gorgeous fabric, gorgeous colours.

    I love this colour. Perfect zing.

    We’ve been busy sewing.

    The felt bags have been sewn using a blend of the box bag and zip pouch pattern – so there’s a flat base and an elegant swoosh out to the zipped top.

    The bags will be in the shop at 1900 on Thursday 19th November.
