Two blogs close and another one opens!

So I have decided that it is way to hard trying to keep up with the two current blogs of 'little possum designs' and 'tillytom designs' so have set up a new blog HERE which will be everything and anything from sewing to knitting, crafting to quilting, family, life and more!
I hope that those of you that do read and/or follow my blogs will continue to do so over at the new one. This will be the final post here : )

New Store at ETSY . . .

Things have been a little quiet at my Madeit store lately so have decided to branch out and see how an ETSY store will go.
<<<-----That little button over there to the left will take you straight to the new shop : )
The market last night was great - lots of gorgeous handmade goodies and a great crowd over the 2 and a half hours that it ran for. I had a great response with lots of new and returning customers and a few custom requests for skirts and dresses which is fantastic! Also a lot of comments from people wanting to wait til summer to buy the skirts and dresses and hoping that I will still be around selling them - the answer - yes I will!
I love to sew and create and can let you in on a little secret - stay tuned for some more gorgeous little dresses and skirts in some new designs and styles in the months to come!
Cheers : )

Next Market - Magenta Makers Market Saturday 6th June

The next market is fast approaching with the Magenta Makers Market this Saturday at the Australian Inland Botanical Gardens. The weather forcast is not looking good with more rain expected over the weekend, but luckily the crafters are inside in the old woolshed out of the rain - although rug up as we don't have heating in there!
So some new goodies for this Saturday's market include;

Winter Cord Skirts -
same style as the 'Tilda' skirts, but made in lovely soft cord with a contrast trim - available in sizes 2-4 and 3-5. Super easy pull on, and a generous length to last for more than one winter.
More funky market bags -
these are selling really well, and I have now added a simple internal pocket.
More Beanies -
to keep those little heads warm in some funky new designs
Coin Purses -
super cute little coin purses for your small change, great to take along to the market!
Hope to see a great crowd at the markets this Saturday, see you then : )

New stuff!

Good morning! I have a big art & craft fair coming up this weekend and have been very busy sewing, knitting and crafting in readiness for that which is being run by the Red Cliffs Nexus Club at the Red Cliffs Civic Centre.

Here is a sneak peak at a few new items I have for this weekends fair;

Hair Clip Gift Sets
- cute vintage book inspired gift tags with a pony, pin and yoyo button clip set
Baby Beanies
- cute little beanies for little heads

Nappy Wallets
- this is a design I have been working on for some weeks and am finally happy with what I have come up with.

These wallets are designed to fit easily into your handbag or bottom of the pram, and can hold nappies, wipes, waste bags and even a spare wondersuit for those quick trips to the shops. Hardwearing denim outer, fully lined with quality quilters cotton and full interfaced to maintain shape.

Folds neatly together and holds closed with a magnetic button. Available in three different coloured denims; blue, chocolate and wheat.

These will be available from my madeit shop Sunday night!

New fabrics
- a recent purchase of some new fabrics destined for more 'tilda' dresses for this weekends market and my madeit shop Sunday night.

'Tilda' Skirt

- another new design that will be available from my Madeit Shop from Sunday night if they don't all sell out at the fair this weekend!

Thanks for reading! : )

I have a big market coming up in 3 weeks time out at Red Cliffs that is being run by the Nexus Club in the towns Civic Centre that is being run over a full weekend so must get very busy in the next few weeks sewing and crafting so that my stall is bursting with colour!
