In a Bind!

Oooh i’m using Windows Live Writer! Thanks to the tips from the Australian Contemporary Handmade Alliance I would never had known about it!! Check them out if you are a crafty like minded person for some great tips!!

Ok well it’s been a bit quiet in Selkieland, My little puppy has been sick, but she is on the mend, thank goodness! I have completed some custom orders over the last week and now i’m going to spend some time getting stock together for Billycart Markets on the 26th June. I’m working on an idea I’ve had for a while. I’m designing some binder covers for both “Kids Art Portfolios” and also for a “My Recipe” Binder. The covers will be removable for washing as we know a) kids are messy and b)chefs are messy!! Well i am! I also want to have a detachable pencil pocket for the art binders and the same for the recipe binders for a notepad and pencil.

I also used my embroidery part of the sewing machine last weekend with a bit of trepidation, but it was much easier than I expected. Although from the pic below you can see it doesn’t have much flair, i’ve bought lovely coloured embroidery thread for the real thing, so I can personalise the binders! So if you want it personalised then you can place a custom order with me!

Ok well for the moment I only have a very cryptic photo of my idea but I will post it to give you some idea!005

Of course I have some great fabrics in my stash for both styles of binders and I can’t wait to use some of my Retro 50’s inspired fabric for the recipe binders! I hope to have the Recipe Binders ready for Poppyseed Markets in July!
