Idees - Competition

Idees (ideas) Magazine is a fantastic South African magazine featuring a variety of local crafts, cookery and livestyle ideas.

Each year they have a "hand created" competition which anyone can enter. They are looking for easy and affordable gift ideas.

I entred one of my felt notebooks and could not believe my luch when they contacted me last week to inform my that my entry was one of the 25 finalists. Yeah!!

This means my book will feature in the September issue of the magazine and hopefully in their gorgeous coffee table book with gift ideas.

Dids - felt handbags

Some more samples of my handbags. As you can see, I am having a lot of fun with these bags. Each one is individually made by hand, fully lined with cotton fabric and they close with a magnetic clip.

I hope they are going to sell like hot cakes!

Felt Handbag

My new felt passion involves handbags, handbags of different sizes and shapes. I love the larger "canvas" the bag provides to play with colour and design.

This weekend I am taking my goodies to a new exhibition venue - blos (= blush) market. It is a fantastic outside venue with a fresh food deli, live music, decor etc.

Come and join us.

Will keep you updated with more handbags as they are completed.
