 When I got home from the Auckland Art and Craft Fair yesterday I felt inspired to make some more brooches, so I rustled up these ones.  They're made with the embroidery from an old linen cloth I bought a while ago from a great op shop in Putaruru.  It had seen better days but had been lovingly mended in places, and was lovely and soft.
 I brought them along to Kraftbomb and here they are with my huia brooches:
And here's the stall:

There were lots of clever display ideas at Kraftbomb, and at the Auckland Art and Craft Fair, and I spent a bit of time today dreaming up ideas for displaying my wares better.  I'm thinking of making some kind of shelving unit for my prints, maybe out of the vintage spice racks that seem to be accumulating in my car.  Now that could be an excuse for an op shopping excursion!


  1. How was your day at Kraftbomb Emily? Was it busy? You are such a hardcore doing the 2 days :) Sweet new brooches there.

    1. Thanks Sarah! Haha, I was pretty exhausted by the end of Sunday, had to come home and flop on the couch! Kraftbomb was quietish, it felt kind of relaxing after Saturday!
