A few weeks ago I ran my first stall at the Sunday Market and was asked my someone to mke a bespoke cushion especially for them. The client showed me a cushion cover she had just bought and asked me to complement the colours and gave me the size and fabric specifications. I have found a great cushion to print onto in lovely warm honey beige. The client has approved and after subitting her the design I have planned I will print it next week. I'm very excited to see the outcome and its great to have a brief such as this! I will keep you posted with pictures next week...

The last couple of weeks have beeen a bit quiet in the studio. Firstly - I took a break after the market madness to go fabric buying. I bought some beautiful silks in the most amazing blues and also some gorgeous sea green cotton which I am planning on using for a present to a wonderful friend who helped me on my market. I've also been stocking up on baby-grows and working on the commision I was asked to do. I was all ready for a couple of long days printing in the studio this week - but my son is sick... So, instead I am ordering more labels and setting up my web shop. More details to come about my shops soon to be appearing on Dawanda and Etsy!

So yesterday I ran my first market stall. It was a beautiful sunny day and the market was full of happy people walking in the sun. I had a great day, had lots of friends coming to see me and support me which was lovely. I had alot of good feedback as well, sold a few things and had overall a very positive response. It left me with a lot of ideas of what to improve on and what to make more of as well. I even landed a personal commmission! The Sunday Market, Westergasfabriek Amsterdam is every month and the next one will be 28th June - I'm looking forward to it already...

Some of the baby-grows I've been printing for the market on Sunday...

And some of the cards...

Monday, 1 June 2015


I've been printing in my studio on babygrows for my market stall on Sunday. I'm printing 15 of them, most of which are made of organic cotton. My favorite is the tiny bright pink new-born one, which I'm hoping no-one can resist! So far, the pink ones have fluttering moths and the blue ones little beetles and I'm just hoping the insect theme can look cute enough on baby clothing. I'm planning to finish them tomorrow. Then I have to print some logos on to my T-shirts and I'm ready for the Market. Still so much to do though...watch this space for the baby-grow pics!
