In between doing the Lazy Oaf internship I was trying to prepare new stock for my first ever craft fair. Put on by "I make fun stuff" at Ipswich Town hall Saturday 27th March.
I was extremely nervous as I didn't know what to expect or how people would react to my creations. As it happened, it sent down really well, and got some great feedback especially on my Toadstool dinner set.
New items will be added to my online shop very shortly...
I have been in London over the past three weeks working at Lazy Oaf's studio. It was an amazing experience working behind the scenes seeing the talented Gemma creating new illustrations for up and coming collaborations and new stationary and collections.
For those who don't know, Lazy Oaf is a small fashion label which is now sold world wide and has expanded from t-shirts to all sorts of exciting goodies, jewellery, hats, stationary, badges, bags....and now even cushions! My crafty skills came in handy during my period there where I made some cushions to brighten up the studio. The guys loved them so asked me to make some for their shop, just off Carnaby Street. They went down so well there they also got me to make some for their online shop...
As well as creating cushions, making up jewellery and photographing stock for the site I also had the job of creating uses for Gemma's postcard book, cutting them up to make bird boxes and towers.
I had a great time, Thank you to all you Lazy Oafs, I shall miss you x
