I'll be glad when the week is over. The first full teaching week back is always hard yakka. Lesson plans, parent evenings, very little sleep and lots of photocopying. But in between all of this, I have managed to steal some time to make some stock for my first market of the year, Northside Makers Market. As a Northside committee member, I haven't been much use at all .. and to my team mates I apologise and promise to make it up with cider and martini's!
So here is a sneak peak of what I have been doing ...Firstly, my Wizard of Oz range .... Some Market Bags ....
Each one of course has a surprise lining ... you'll just have to come to the market to see what I have done!
I was very excited about using the Thea and Sami hand screen printed fabric. They are a Queensland based business and they hand print it all themselves.
The bag has a bit of a Mattt's bag's feel to it, but the pattern is all mine and it is 100% cotton and machine washable (actually, the Thea and Sami fabric is 55% hemp/45% organic cotton).
And of course some new japanese fabrics have been used as well. I love this print and the colour palette.
