Shrink plastic anyone?

I have just ordered shrink plastic.

its one of those impulse purchases that I’ve been thinking about for years…. Maby not that impulsive then.

I have loads of little drawings and whatnots thoughts and type faces that I would love to make into tiny pieces and pretty things.

but short of paying a company to print them onto something in a bulk order of a million pieces I had no way of transferring them from sketchbook to fashion piece.

I have long been a fan of tatty divine jewellery and its inspired me to speculate The £7.50 and go for it!!

results to come!!

also if you would like to see what harm idea I’m thinking today then search Elephants Hankie on pinterest and twitter!!

Well, that escalated quickly!

I have stock, as in products! I actually have things I have made which I can put up for sale.

I may sound shocked at this and I probably am as I just looked in my “finished” box and there are loads!

The problem is now that I don’t have a decent camera and even if I did how do I take photographs of products?

To Mollie makes!! for inspiration.

It just seems so complicated making things, taking good photos, getting them online, describing them correctly, packaging, business cards, blogging, updating, sharing, linking and then sitting staring hopefully at the screen waiting for someone to buy one.

The last time I started something like this I rushed and then ended up in this horrible place where I was desperately putting up posts of half finished frankly rubbish pieces to make my site look full.


This time i’m going to hide under a blanket until my work is finished then I might peek out lol



Yes you heard me those pesky pretty undergarment is my starting point for my clothes making adventure!!!!

Makes sense when you think about it really.

I did also buy the new Mollie makes special about sewing and that little pattern in the back had my heart strings going.

So this week in slightly out of action as my new job is taking over.

Satarday I’m buying a gold fish!!! Caked me fish or Freddie not sure which yet.

But if you joins me next week I will be flashing you my brand new undies (don’t worry I wont model no one deserves that!!)


The Lost Journal

I have a problem….. Notebooks.

I love then i cant get enough of them i buy a new one and never finish the old one, or i get anoyed when the ideas in one don’t work and i put it away.

I don’t just mean a few notepads… Oh no i means 40 or 50 dotted around the place.

Plain paper, lined paper, sketch ones and writing ones, watercolour, prints, some are cut out some are just covers with scraps of paper i even went though a phase of using old reading books as sketchbooks (which is a really liberating experience trust me!)

So this week i decoded to look through one or two and found last years ideas book.

Its amazing how only last January i was making and creating i was really flowing with ideas.

Life cab really knock the stuffing out of you and the consequences was this book full of ideas shoved in a cupboard to gather dust.

With mainly doll patterns and little musings in it i decided it was time to let it out into the world again.

So i made one of the dolls, a cute little rabbit and im gonna make more and more and when ive made them all……. Ill open another journal!!
