UPDATE ON TEAPOT AND SNAIL!!!
Woohoo! I did it - the new pattern is out and up on Etsy as we speak. My daughter's started at preschool and loving it so I have those days to get stuck into some shop work. I have some ideas for patterns running around in my head and here's the first one:
It's a coffee carrier for four takeaway coffee cup and it's called the Espresso Express. It will also fit those big smoothie/juice cups or water bottles. I just got fed up with those cardboard trays and wanted something I could take coffees down to the playground in, or wherever really, without it being a balancing act. I gave one to my MIL as a gift and she and her husband take coffees down to the beach in winter with a blanket and a book. I wish I'd thought of this idea when I was working in an office and doing the coffee run for colleagues.
The one you see in the pic above is made from chalkboard cloth that I bought from Me Too Please
, which is an Australian company, online. This stuff is brilliant because you can write your coffee orders on in chalk. I have to get to work making these for gifts now. Lots of them!
This week I will be getting onto my next pattern which has been inspired by a request from Christine of Poppie's Pretties
. She's after a little girl's handbag to sell on her Facebook shop so I will be scaling down the Pony
bag. I'm thinking of adding a big bow to the front just coz I know that's what my chickie would love. I wonder what other little girls out there would like?
