Come on girls what do you think?

We had a fabulous response to our request for ideas for crafty items which you might find useful in your work area, for storage or for carrying your equipment.  Wipso and I have been really busy [so what's new?] designing and creating [and having lots of fun].  These are the items we have made so far but there are lots more in the pipeline.

We had such a lot of ideas, either on our blogs or in emails, that we have decided to put a different item up for a gift each week.  This will be posted in the blog shop and to stand a chance of winning the gift you need to leave us a comment telling us why you would like it and how you would use it.  Each week we will do a draw and post the result in the shop with the news of the next week's gift.  


We are hoping to get a bit more feed back from you so we know we are on the right lines then in the next few weeks we will be uploading them in the shop for sale.

These are the items we have made so far.....

Baby wipe cover, pin cushion, needle / pin case.
Green with chicken print.










 Baby wipe cover, pin cushion, needle / pin case.
White with strawberry print








Baby wipe cover, pin cushion, needle / pin case and ribbon holder.
Red / white stripe with poppy embellishment.







Pen / pencil roll.  Holds 17 pens / pencils
Pink / burgundy cotton print.






Crafter's pocketed apron with tie fastenings.
Grey / white print with 6 pockets.
This will be the first item in the shop blog draw so pop over and leave us a comment if you would like to win one.  Only comments left in the shop will be entered in the draw.

Girls I think they are utterly fab ideas in practice: I know it will affect price etc, but have you considered using fabrics like/from Cath Kidston,Amy Butler/ polka dots, balh...top faves out there at mo. I'm holding back for the holders to get into the shop!!

they are all gorgeous - and I LOVE that apron, of to join that prize draw.

That's looking good. My fave is the red stripy - easy to spot when "I know I put it somewhere...", yet not so pale that I would cover it in ink and ruin it.

Also, would you consider making items in the customer's own fabric (with caveats over suitability of course)?

Looking forward to seeing the stock in the shop...

Love these ...if the wipes are for adults ...eg crafters ...and to be a set then I think fabics that are darkish and funky ot vintage might work. I was thinking about inky fingers xx
