Yes, I’m still alive. And yes, I’m still busy and need to figure out my new work schedule, sewing and blogging balance. To prove to you that I’m still working hard on my 27 Dresses Challenge, I even took some pics of my Work In Progress *spoiler alert*!
But first of all I wanted to share some of the stuff I admired (and bought) at the Crafty Fox Market in Brixton last Sunday. Daniela from Ela Sews And Doesn’t Sleep invited me to come with her, which was super sweet and if she hadn’t asked me I wouldn’t have known about the Crafty Fox Market in the first place. The location was absolutely wonderful, but I forgot to take pictures.
One of my absolute favourite traders was Kayleigh O’Mara, who sold (next to other things) super cute shrink plastic brooches. After standing in front of the brooches for almost 15 minutes I HAD to buy some. I picked a super cute polar bear and a badger (see pic above).
The polar bear now found its place on my new beanie and I love it!
And yes! You guessed right – my order of shrink plastic arrived this morning! Let’s make some fun jewelry this autumn.
*Blurry Pic Alarm*
One of the other traders, Forgotten Stitches, sold beautiful vintage-looking dolls. Aww! Unfortunately way out of my budget, but you can check them out here.
By the way, the Crafty Fox Autumn market exhibitors have been selected by guest curators, one of them being Tilly Walnes (you know her from Tilly and the Buttons).
Other traders I absolutely loved (actually I loved all of them, but these are the very best):
Jimbo Art had super cute and fun designs – plates, cups and art prints.
Ladybird Likes sold these cute pug and owl collar clips (amongst other things).
For a list of all traders, check out the Crafty Fox website. It’s absolutely worth it! Most of them have web or etsy shops, your chance to get your share of handmade froufrou if you missed the market last weekend!
Now, to prove to you that I’m not just hanging around being lazy and taking a break from blogging, here’s the chance to sneak a peek at my WIPs!
Currently I’m finishing a jacket, working on a dress and refashioning a skirt. Oh, and I started knitting a scarf. You can try and guess what is what in the pictures above. 🙂
