Creative and fun gift wrapping has really taken off lately - not sure where to start? This parcel packing kit supplies you with all manner of inspiring notions to give you a place to start exploring unique ways of presenting your gifts: labels, gift tags, twine and little touches like the engraved scissors that come with the wrapping materials make this kit a truly special gift.
Ask alice says:
We are proud to tell you that all our papers are earth friendly in more ways than just being recycled. In our efforts to create the best products, we are sometimes faced with the odd item that can’t be produced locally. In these instances we take care in choosing the right suppliers who don’t rely on slave labour. All the paper products in our kits are locally produced in Melbourne, Australia. Both the scissors and the twine were made fair trade by our new artisan friends in India.
Gift giving you can feel good about! Swing by the shop soon and grab one of these kits – they won’t last.
Not that it’s the weather for it but i have just finished this Baby Cot Blanket!!! any madder thing to do in this weather? i think not…
The blanket measures 950mm square and is made from all pure new wool.
Would fit nicely in the pram or tucked in around the car seat too.
Certainly a unique one-off!
It’s just aswell the shop is quiet with all this hideous weather as i have a chance to work on all my orders!
Little Johnboy went off in the mail and got lost!!!…….only for a week fortunately and he did finally make an appearance, but in his absence i was frantically making another.
All is well now and this little fellow will go onto the shelves very shortly
Also working my fingers to the bone with an order from my good friends at The Friendship Tree.
They had a sellout of Sweetpeas before Christmas.
So…I’m in the middle of making the dolls for the pea pods and the bush pouches. These little dolls will go off to Kim and Donna for their little felt hats and felt pods and pouches.
I make these dolls exclusively for The Friendship Tree so you’ll need to pop over to buy them from their shop in Northcote.
Then once these little chums are off on their way it’s on to the next order for Penny at rudolfsteiner.com in Castlemaine. There will be some for the steiner school and some for the shop too……its worth a trip to the country to visit Penny. Like me she has some treasures in her shop….very beautiful wares!
Anyway back to work…..the sewing needle calls!
