Out and About

Here's a few snippets from my various outings during the summer. All textile related of course!

Camera Case

My mum got herself a new camera and needed a pouch type thing to keep it in. So I attempted to make her one. She requested a pocket for the camera, pocket for the lead and a pocket for spare batteries! So instead of planning it like any normal person I did it as i went along and here's my creation. Kind of like it! navy blue corduroy with ticking lining and red taped edges.

iphone cases galore!

I've also put all my iphone cases onto my Folksy!

Brilliant Bunting

I made some bunting for my Folksy shop inspired by my two little cousins. A boy's bedroom bunting featuring red, blue, white, and airplane flags.

Here is some pretty pink and green, flowery bunting. I sent one of these to my friend and expectant mother!

Alexia Claire is born!

I decided to open my own Folksy shop this summer and sell my fabric makes and hopefully some of my print designs too. It would be nice to earn a little bit from it but to be honest I just really enjoy the whole making process and the feeling you get when someone wants to buy something you've made! I really like the fabric baskets I made so here's two of about 5 that I started out with in my shop. I also started with my iphone covers too. I chose 'AlexiaClaire' as surprisingly that's my name. My mum is called Claire and she has been a huge influence on my crafty side while growing up so it's nice that she gets represented.

Dimebag Darrel

For Jamie's birthday LAST YEAR I started this painting for him. I only got round to finishing it this June. As it was Dimebag's birthday the other day I thought I'd show you all as I'm quite proud of it! Based on the Dimebag tribute with a few of my own little tweaks including Rogue Status Gunshow on the shield.


Back in June it was my little goddaughter / cousin's birthday. They live in France so I don't get to see them much so I wanted to do her and her sister something special for their birthdays this year. In keeping with my uni course I'm on I decided to make them both customised notebooks. I asked my uncle to send me photos of their favourite teddies for me to draw from.

So here is sketchpad number one in making. She loves to draw so I chose a sketchpad.
