The Red Hill Fair is on Saturday 31st July. It looks to be a fun day out, especially for families. There'll be rides, sideshows, food and over 40 craft stalls... including me!
I'm really looking forward to it, especially after the fun of the BrisStyle Indie Eco Market. I had a ball on Saturday, sold out of a few ranges and had loads of lovely visitors. I probably won't have space for kids clothes at this market, but I will have nested ducks, hanging doves and chicken cushions with me, and whatever else I can squeeze onto my table.
Oh that reminds me, I didn't get time to share the doves and chickens with you before the market, so here they are;
... and their patchwork backs.
All the birds are made out of recycled fabrics. The hanging doves were uber retro, made out of op-shopped fabric I had been hoarding since I was a teenager! The chickens had more of a vintage feel, some featured doilies as wings, others had pocket wings with lace trim and others just had big, funky, oversized pocket wings.
So, a heap of handmade birds and other upcycled crafty goodness, and myself, will be at Red Hill Fair on Saturday 31st July, maybe we'll see you there :)
I sew, knit and crochet and love creating fun, unique clothes for children. Why? Because every child is a little original, their clothing should reflect that!
I am always ferreting around for second-hand vintage and retro fabrics and linen to upcycle, recycle and repurpose and give a new lease on life. Using existing resources is very important to me.
