Crafty Pickings

Finally I have got around to writing about Saturday's We Make London craft fair, at Chelsea Town Hall.

It was a scorcher of a day, but there were many, many beautiful things to purchase. Here are just a handful of my favourite stalls...

These two lovely ladies sell brilliant and truly unique hats on one side, and twinkly biscuit jewels on the other.

Hatastic and Creme Nouveau.


I fell in love with all of Alice Gabb's beautiful bears...


And as if I haven't been feeling broody enough lately, Milk Two Bunnies made me want to have babies there and then!

Just look at their gorgeous Liberty Print Tutu knickers. Everything was truly divine!


Actually, I'd quite like a pair in my size please...

When I spotted Now, Voyager, I had to stop myself hyperventilating over the A-MAZ-ING cake head pieces. Their stall looked absolutely fantastic, and I couldn't stop myself from purchasing a lovely pink piece of cake for my head.

This is their eye-poppingly good stall... Photos don't do it justice.


Another gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous stall was Heart Zeena's...

At the end of the day, a swap was in order with Zeena, so I got her lovely orange love bird cushion, on the right hand side of this pic, and she got my leopard swallow headband...


My Love Bird has joined the rest of the gang on the bed...


I do so love a swap, and another was made with Hung Drawn Quoted.


I swapped a Union Jack brooch for an ace crocheted Brown Sauce bottle canvas, which now hangs above our cooker, and complements my great grandmother's flying ducks, rather well:


Having abandoned the boy, yet another weekend, I got him a cute present from Crumpet & Skirt.

This rather marvellous pin-up mug...


Another adorable stall with cute stuff for kids was Toby Boo- love love loving their Soldiers, and nursery rhyme cushions:


I could keep writing all day, about every single one of the stalls, as they were all selling at least one thing I wanted! You can check out a list of all the great sellers, and view their websites here.

Anyway, that is all for now... mucho sewing to be done.
