The Handmade Market, Stockport





 Do you remember the felt I blogged about a couple of weeks ago? Well, here is a small selection of items I have created for our stall at The Handmade Market, Stockport.

My owls are usually popular, so as well as my normally squidgy ones, I have decided to introduce a bit more functionality to them by making some into bag charms/keyrings. To create the bag charms I have used vintage fabric.

There are so many sumptuous colours on the high street and in the fashion world currently which I have tried to use in my new designs. I am loving mustard and teal (these colours can be spotted on the cheeky monkey birthday cards at the top!)

We will be at The Handmade Market in our first official outing as Fi&Me on Sunday. We have been busy re-branding over the summer in preparation for our website launch before the year is out.
Credit must be given to Lucy for all the hard work she has put in with the web design and technical bits!
It's been hard work, especially since we both work, and I have an energetic 2 year old to look after, but we find it so rewarding so it's worth it.

It's been fun, and so exciting to come up with our logo which in turn has enabled us to order business cards, packaging, labels and start the ball rolling.

Come along on Sunday 25th from 10am until 4pm.
