#Packaging up #illustrated #tote #bags for my stock lists this afternoon!

It’s pretty cold out there this morning – but lots of people will soon be snuggling up with my #illustrated hottie covers, after a popular week!

I found this scene waiting for me after lunch today – It turns out my #totes also can double as #cat nap sleeping-bags…

Handmade TARDIS and Tarot Bunting

Tarot Bunting Ceridwen HazelchildNow that we’ve finished with the Christmas season, I can finally share some of the handmade gifts I made for friends this year. I can’t describe how difficult it was trying to keep these secret before they were opened! This Christmas had a bunting theme, so I made a few strings of special bunting for some close friends – including TARDIS bunting for an avid Dr Who fan and Tarot bunting for a Tarot Reader who is beginning to read professionally.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found bunting takes me a while to make – especially when you are printing the fabric as well! The images were applied to linen using heat applied transfer, which allowed for bright and durable images, and then sewn into rectangular flags, which were then turned the right side out, ironed, and sewn into the binding at regular intervals.

Happy New Year!

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
-Neil Gaiman
