Had a productive day, firstly I received a couple of packs of off cut fabrics from Umbrella Prints which is a textile company based in Australia that sell really lovely printed fabrics. For several years now they have been running a trimmings competition (all details on their blog ) the task is to use their offcuts in whatever format you want. I ordered two packs but as you can only use one I will need to choose, I think I will probably use the one with the green print, have no idea as yet what to make but really looking forward to having a go!
Secondly today I packaged up a box of my handmade accessories, they are off to a local gallery shop which is quite exciting as I have only ever sold my work through fairs etc. Will be interesting to see how things go and possibly something i’d like to do more of. Most of the work I sent was my existing stock with a few new pieces, hoping to streamline my ideas and start selling online. Below is the box full of stock and some new additions!
