Well, it's official - you can now purchase 'Sew Ray Me' handmade goods in a real, actual shop!!!
I dropped off a box of my handmade lovelies to a nearby shop this afternoon, it was so exciting. This is a picture of the shop - 'Kit & Caboodle' (you can search for them on Facebook to see some photos of the things they sell) or you can read a little about it here. The shop has a mixture of vintage and new and has some lovely upcycled furniture including beautiful french dressers (which would go perfectly in my dream farmhouse!), drawers, large framed mirrors and so much more. It really is a little treasure trove of goodies.
The shop owner had asked for Autumn/Winter colours so here's a few of the things I made -
Some cushions using gorgeous reds - ginghams, checks and polka dots, my favs!
A trio of quilted, patchwork notebooks - you can read a little more about their creation in this blog post.
Some lovely 'shabby chic' wool felt hearts. I really *love* these and I especially love the trims and ribbons that are on them. I'll be working with these combinations for a few more of my Christmassy projects.
These are some patchwork placemats, (fully machine washable of course!). They are backed with a lovely stripey cream fabric -
I didn't take in specifically 'Christmas' stock just yet, but I have been asked to supply some of my mini Christmas bunting which you can see here.
I had originally made a set of four placemats like these for taking to the shop -
However, they got snapped up by a customer before they were even on sale! How good will these ones look on the Christmas table?!
Right, with all that excitement, I think I've earned a little break so I'll sit down for 5 mins (before the toddler gets up from his nap) and have a little flick through these mags I got this week -
PS - this is the address of the shop if you're ever in North Fife - Kit and Caboodle, 28 High Street, Newburgh, KY14 6AQ.
