Folksy Friday 8th June

Helloooo   Cheery  Buntings

I ‘ve been busy browsing Folksy  and have another 9 gorgeous makes for you……..Ok.lets get  shopping  🙂

NO..1   Helen Newton    ~    LillyBlossom.

PDF for a reversible tea towel tote.

This simple tutorial will be sent via email to your inbox , 11 pages full of clear and easy to follow instructions , very little is needed to make your tote bag , just a couple of coordinating same size tea towels , cotton tape and thread.

Why not whip one up for this Summer  🙂

  NO..2    Eduardo  Hirschfield    ~    East London.

Beyond Fabrics is a fabric and craft supplies shop based in London, they have a super selection of colourful fabrics and this unusual ribbon.

2 metres long and   1 1/2 inches wide , each ‘ticket’ is   1″ x 2″ , it comes in 6 other colours too.

NO..3    SciArtImages.

Mouse mats in a huge choice of amazing designs , the clever folks at SciArtImages  have captured microscopic images and transferred them onto bookmarks , cufflinks , key rings , mugs , cards and mousemats , great Father’s Day gifts.

NO..4    Lucy Smith    ~    Love Lucy.

Lucy is an artist who’s published greetings cards are stocked by Marks and Spencer and through Phoenix Trading.

Here on Folksy she produces the most beautiful personalised paintings , this is one for the boys, with a football inspired theme.

Measuring  18x13cm , the mount isn’t included , Lucy paints in watercolour and gouache onto 300gsm Fabriano card.  There are New Baby , Father’s day ,Wedding , Best  Teacher , and  little girls   x

NO..5    Anetta’s Craft.

This shop has a very vintage feel , mainly brought about by the antique style prints Anetta uses to decorate her cushions and wall decor.

This delightful  cushion cover measures  16 ”  x  16″  , made from heavyweight hessian with a cotton centre depicting an illustration of a whale.

Anetta has 19 cushions with a similar look to them , I love the Penny farthing bicycle , the old toys and the vintage roses.

NO..6    The Urban Magpie    ~    Zoe Mitchell , Leeds.

This is a fun necklace made from recycled bits of jewellery , vintage glass beads and a doll house tea set , it measures 43cm.

The Urban Magpie is full of quirky , well  put together jewellery , just the kind of pieces I’d wear myself  x

NO..7    Heloise V    ~    York.

We’ve all got tins of lip balm scattered here and there …but there’s never one when you want one  !!

This is a handy crocheted cover for your tin which clips into your handbag easily and securely ……….you’ll never lose it again  🙂

Available in lots of lovely colours crocheted with soft cotton.

NO..8    Sally Kelly    ~    Preston.

This is a glorious acrylic abstract , Sally has 20 others for sale in her shop.

Painted on a 16mm deep canvas it measures 40  x  30cm.

Sally , a qualified architect got into painting just over a year ago after she bought her children some acrylics and canvases….she’s never looked back since having sold over 150 from various different outlets.

Her talent is most definitely in creating beautiful , colourful landscapes full of interest and life !

NO..9    Chris Logan    ~    Hampshire.

Faux books to glam up your Kindle…..these covers by Klevercase were brought about by The Manor Bindery , a book binding and faux book manufacturer in The New Forest.
