Time Travel

I wasn't sure what to call today's post, but given that I've used the old 'grandmother' clock as a backdrop for two of my new 'tweedie' products it seems appropriate enough! The first one, added to my own website yesterday is my new iPad sleeve (well, I had to, didn't I!?) - a natural progression from the other sleeves I've been making recently:

Available to order from here, and hopefully I will add some 'one-off' ones in my Etsy shop soon.

Next up comes a product which I showed you probably a couple of months ago - time flies, eh!! I finally got round to making a second one of these, from my original prototype, so I guess that means it's ready to launch! (Sorry, maybe too many time/space references, hehe) My 'tweed pod' has finally arrived, complete with packaging, and here it is:

He's a mini-version of my 'moon-monsters' which I made a year or so ago. I decided that they would be more fun to make in a smaller version, so this is the result - this version likes to play 'peek-a-boo', as his arms wrap across the body and close with velcro:

When he feels tired or shy, or wants to travel through space and time, he wraps himself into a little rugby-ball shape, and off he goes!:

He'll come neatly wrapped up, with a natural raffia bow, with his very own set of instructions enclosed - ready to give to some poor unsuspecting child who'll wonder why you're giving them a strange egg-shaped tweedie object!! But you'll know :)

I've had a lot of fun with my 'tweed-pods' and plan to make a few of them for my online shops - this particular one is all ready to ship, and available here in my Etsy shop, possibly in my Big Cartel store later too. Hopefully he will be accompanied by some other brightly coloured 'tweed-pods' if I get my skates on today - better fly! :)

From the Outer Hebrides to Outer Space . . . and beyond!!

P.S. I will possibly try and relist some of the items from my Tweed Plush Etsy shop into my Tweed Delights shop - when I get a 'mo'!:)

PS...what is Big Cartel???? Tell me about it!

Hi Janet:) Big Cartel is quite a cool 'little' site - just a basic shopping cart system really though. They charge a monthly fee and you have your own store-front. Here's the link: http://bigcartel.com/
You can choose whatever currency you want to use too. I'm hoping to use mine (in conjunction with Etsy)for all my 'in stock' items. Quite simple to use and set up - if you're thinking of using it, give me a shout and I'll try and remember how I set mine up :) :) x
