Market Weekend 1st/2nd October 2011

Saturday 1st October: Kalamunda Market 

Sunday 2nd October: Freo Growers Market at South Fremantle Senior High School, Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield

How cool is this fabric?
The textile pattern is the result of a collaboration between IKEA and Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm. In a workshop, 22 students sketched energetically and created beautiful artworks that were combined into patterns. The final results are products with unique and playful patterns that represent the best emerging Swedish talent - and show the fun, warmth and openness of creating together.
Designer Beckmans College of Design and of course I made them into beautiful CaRoo bags ;-)
Then I finally made some more pencil cases as they proved very popular. They turned out very cute, not only for little girls if you know what I mean.
And as I am also getting ready for the busy Christmas Season I started on some very large Christmas Stockings. Just in case Santa wants to drop off a large present this year... I have been a good girl after all.
I will be using mine to store my 24 Advent Calendar presents and by Christmas Day it will be empty for Santa for a refill ;-) clever!
Made some retro stockings for the modern home and I also used some very sweet Australian Kangaroo Christmas fabric which is the winner in my opinion... check them out:
And for all the market lovers out there, please mark this one in your calendar. It's the annual Subiaco Craft Fair at the University of WA. I will be busy the next few weeks to create for this event.

Hoping to seeing you on the weekend in Kalamunda or Freo. Have a fantastic time everyone!
