elliot :: 2 months!

babyelliot-1babyelliot-2babyelliot-3babyelliot-4Not to ruin the illusion, but these biscuits taste like cardboard. Yep. No worries here about my props being eaten! Oh, and yes, I did buy them just for this. Look out for more biscuit writing coming to a computer screen near you!

Outtakes that were too cute not to share… chubby sweet cheeks!

The Sewists

Sewists1Sewists2Back in 2012, I was contacted by Josephine Perry, an instructor at the Liberty Sewing School, to contribute a project for her upcoming book. I am super excited to announce that her book, The Sewists – DIY Projects from 20 Top Designers-Makers, will be launching in the UK this September!

From jewellery to bookbinding, felt craft to embroidery, screen-print to dressmaking, The Sewists takes a rare snoop inside the sewing rooms of creative crafters and gives space to the reasons why they love their craft. Projects include hand-bound notebooks, patchwork coasters, applique cushions, and of course, fabric pouches by Roxypop!

Thanks to Miranda from Blue Olive Photography for snapping the shots of my craft room!
