pimpin' my stuff

How rude! Long silence then popping back for a quick buy my stuff post, then off I go to sew some more! 
Terrible I know but I'm doing it anyway ;)


Helicopter Drawing Wrap - your choice, texta's, pencils, double ended pencils or extra thick ones :)


Big boy bag - enough room for a big drinker, zipper purse (although big boys dont call them purses) and other important boy stuff they just HAVE to carry around. Made for 5 plus 

Little kid bag - big enough for a little kid drinker, zipper purse and other important kid stuff. Mine carry rocks. Made for 2-5 yr olds. Soft and washable. Kids are gross after all ;) 

All made and ready to express post out! Let me know if you are interesting and I can set up a madeit listing for you :) Too easy!

I WILL be back next week with all the other things I have been secretly sewing....I have been very busy ;) xox

Market wrap up!

Just like that, it's all over!
What an amazing weekend we had!! Lots of chatting and laughing. Lots of wonderful customers that were really positive and excited about handmade!
It was really exciting to have people buy my stuff. Serious fun! Even though I have been selling for awhile now, online is very different to having someone stand in front of you and love what you do enough to hand over their hard earned money. I like it. I like it a lot.

Little zippers. Priced a little to high for that kind of market. Will be listing some on madeit later today :)

Mel's G O R G E O U S skirts!!
The Six Little Heart dresses were a massive success!! Sold out on the first day!!

Six Little Heart's boy shorts. Made at home by the marvelous Mel.

Lots of stock sold. Lots of business cards giving out. Even did some swaps with the wonderful family behind us selling rainbow play ribbons, capes and giant star crayons. Ost & Found, keep an eye out for them! Made at home in the top end of cause :)

I have learnt lots of things. Leaving things too the last minute may help me sew up a storm but it doesn't work for the family. It has been a really hard slog for them. I have done nothing, and I really do mean nothing the week of the market.

Also. Craft markets in Darwin are just that. Still a little old fashion. Good news is there are now a few of us that at looking to do something more up market. Like what you mob are lucky enough to have down south. Darwin has always had a passion for handmade and I think there are now enough bright sparks to tap into that wonderful pool of makers.....
to be continued...... xox
