This is what my Saturday looked like! Although the sun did come up and actually get quite hot, and make things a little gross and unbearable at times! I decided to move my stall into a different spot, and I had a terrible day! I'm not sure whether it was just generally a terrible day or if moving my stall to a different part of the markets was the cause of all my woes... but I did talk with lots of other stall holders and some organisers who seemed to be all saying the same thing "stacks of people, no one spending!".
Such is life! I have now caught up on stock and can spend this week making things besides bugs-- bunnies, birds and of course do some screen printing!
So anyway, this is Jilly, my new favourite little bug girl- she is made from fleece, some pretty blue vintage fabric scraps from my nearest op shop, and this fabulous fabric designed by Liz and printed at Spoonflower. I bought it from her Etsy Shop, and she has a blog which I also love, called Paper Pie. She is very clever with textas, her designs are hand-drawn. The pretty blue flower-dots on Sofia are also by Liz, and I only bought a fat quarter, and it's almost gone! This never happens, usually a fq lasts a month or 2 because I use such small quantities, but I got a little carried away!
More on some great fabrics finds a little later, but I'll just quickly share this great link with you, Mel Bomba-- a new etsy shop selling divine hand printed fabrics from Sydney- free shipping until the end of August, I bought some during the week and I'm VERY IMPRESSED! Photos later, but I highly recommend!
