It’s been almost a week and half since the Margot ladies had a day trip to London for the Mollie Makes Handmade Awards. If you missed the exciting news, Margot was a finalist in the collaboration category alongside two other collaborative projects.
We knew a good day would be had by all, whether we were to win or not. Team Mollie Makes had organised a jam-packed day of mentoring and activities for us to do. Plus it would give us an opportunity to chat everything making and creative with some fellow crafty folk.
Last week Geoffrey & Grace and the other makers at Margot got some very exciting news…
Margot has been shortlisted for a Mollie Makes Handmade Award!
When I received the email to tell me, I was cooking Bailey’s dinner and I jumped around the kitchen giggling in disbelief. I had to read the email another three times for the news to properly sink in.
This vintage fabric girl’s dress is one of my latest makes. I have been working on several things for Margot and have been using the Worthing Art Trail as a bit of a deadline to work towards.
Made from a thrifted vintage pillowcase, it is a one off, as I now only have the cutting scraps left. I just love the beautiful open flower print, and the soft pink / brown tones of the fabric.
It’s great to be able to finally finish a few pieces off. I get such enjoyment from having a play like this, and taking some photos of what I have made. For me this is just as much fun as the making itself.
Thought I’d stop by with a little making update. Since my pledge back in March for it to be a month of making, I wanted to let you know how I am getting on. Well it’s May if you can believe it, so I have had two months to make my little socks off… how much do you think I’ve done?
Just a quick one from me today folks. Thought I’d swing by and share a little fabric inspiration. I discovered these vintage florals – which have been hiding in my stash – whilst organising my work room. My inspiration has been some what flattened this week by a couple of 5am starts and a three year old who is… let’s say ‘pushing her boundaries’.
