Here's how it turned out (please excluse my fat, sunburnt arms - I told you we'd been having some lovely weather here recently!) . . .
I chose this tweed as the one she had given me was quite a dark one which I loved but I think she would have found too dark for her own personal taste. I think the peacock blue PVC lining looked really nice against the pale pink of the tweed. I jammed it up with some nice 'smellies' (that's 'toiletries!) and it seemed to take quite a good amount of products. Here's some pics of it before I packed it up, with just a few random items of my own to show the size. It was a really nice project to do and I'm looking forward to making some for sale hopefully!
As previously mentioned the current plan of action as regards selling my products is to start stocking up my Big Cartel site, but rather than abandon my Etsy shop I think it might be nice to keep it ticking over with a range of simple items eg. fabric covered buttons, or something similar - I enjoy the site too much to walk away from it and use it so much for purchasing supplies, etc.
My 'old' website www.tweeddelights.co.uk will be disappearing this week - out with the old and in with the new, or something like that!!! I'm looking forward to making some 'fresh' creations and having them up for sale on 'Big Cartel' - international shipping on all items of course!
Later 'tweedie' Gaters :)
