Dream Big

I got a lovely parcel in the post yesterday from Paper and String. Felt felt and more felt!

I was asked to do a little craft stall at a friends Christmas fayre in November...I said yes despite the fact I have nothing to yet!! So I'm back in the making doing midnight sewing malarky again.

I came up with this idea today and I'm quite pleased how it turned out. I've never printed words onto fabric before, but I like the idea of having little inspring quotes or words sewn onto the decorations. Its good to finally be using the fabric paints I bought years ago!! I knew they'd come in handy one day.

I'm all for pretty packaging, so I was thinking of doing something like this...
I'm aiming for a 50's aesethic, as I love and avidly collect vintage childrens books and I just love some of the illustrations from the 1950's. Rockets, robots, moons and balloons! I need to get some stickers or business cards with my name and contact blurb on.

It still needs some tinkering with, the basket needs to be a little smaller and I might change how I sew the printed fabric on, but apart from that its not bad for a first attempt!

Please let me know what you think or any nice words or quotes you think I could use!

Thanks lovelies :)


  1. Ooh how exciting!! Really like the balloon, looking forward to seeing rockets! Will look out some quotes for you x

  2. I love it, and to have all that felt, brilliant, can't wait to see what else you come up with. xx

  3. So cute and creative!!! And look at all that felt--joy! Have fun creating this weekend!!
