The Great Christmas Market Nelson

On Sunday, The Great Christmas Market was on. It was sooo cool meeting fellow bloggers and creatives in the Nelson region. I cannot wait until next years where I will hopefully have my own stall! Here are a few pics from the day and a few of my favorite stalls. I have added links so you can all see their work too :)

Katie from Skunk & Robot makes beautiful screen printed lamp shades & prints. I loved her hand made ties which had different patterned fabrics. You can check out her Facebook page here. What a clever chicky!

The Inside designs and makes these stags heads and birds (which I totally want!) She also specialises in wallpaper, decals and fabrics. Love her work. You can check out the website here.

Wonderville has the most funky artworks Ive seen. Fleur uses a bunch of mixed media to create these beauties. Check out her Facebook page here! She is also one of the fab chicks to have started The Great Christmas Market :)

Print Mistress was another of my faves. She designs and screen prints fabrics, tea towels, tees etc So clever and with such beautiful patterns! Check out her Facebook page here. Some of her designs (like in the bottom of this photo) are quite similar to some of my drawings. I love the contrast of colours and designs.

Kim from Cupcake Cutie makes these super cuuuuuuute hand stitched items. I love the cupcake pin cushions and babushka dolls! Kim has a blog full of amazing tutorials which you can check out here. Any of these would be perfect gifts for Christmas.

Waaaaahhhh these are too cute! Little felt acorns and santa men. Stef from Little Pixie Design doesn’t have a site yet but if you’re keen to get in contact with her, email stefdodunski{AT}yahoo.co.nz I now wish Id bought one (or 10) of those acorns! LOVE.

I love these little brooches by Sally of Mahana Redlegs. Very cute. She has an online shop which you can check out here.

What an awesome day. Meeting like minded creatives on a beautiful sunny day. I am looking forward to joining in the fun in next years market! If you visited any of these sites, which was your fave? xo Bec

DIY: Tissue holder for your bag!

Hello! Day 4 of mine and Alanas pattern project!
Its getting into winter weather here in New Zealand which means tissues are a must have! (I hate being caught out in public with a dribbly nose and no tissue and we all know wiping it on your sleeve just aint that pretty) :D So todays DIY is a super cute way to carry tissues in your bag at all times.

Supplies needed: Fabric or felt that you love, needle and thread, scissors.
Firstly lay out your fabric and measure the size of a standard tissue, you need to make sure they fit inside and leave about 5mm on each side for sewing. Cut to correct size.

I then cut out a long scoop so that either side had a wee tab to sew along. Also this makes it super easy to refill with new tissues.
Sew along the edges and fill with tissues. How easy was that?! Now you can look forward to having a cold. Sort of. Maybe not…xo Bec

My latest wee project has been this fairy light frame which I just LOVE! I cut out felt hearts and attached them with a fine cotton. This looks so good at night… sorry I didnt post a pic, I couldnt seem to take one that showed off just how awesome it looked! Hope you like it :) xo Bec
