Just a quick announcement to say that I now have a new shop – ‘Fern Makes‘ – which I have set up to sell handmade products that don’t fit into my card or jewellery shops.
I’m starting off selling miniature bound books/sketchbooks/journals that have blank pages inside and can actually be written or drawn in despite being only a few cm tall!
You can choose between 3 different colours and whether you would like a hardback or leather cover. Each item has been made from scratch by me, and each book page has been hand sewn to the rest (rather than just glued) for extra durability.
You could give them as a gift for a doodler, writer or book lover….and I particularly like the idea of writing nice messages inside and giving it to a loved one 🙂
Welcome to my new website address and design…it’s probably long overdue!
I’ll be continuing to post craft tutorials, as before, plus I’m hoping to add a bit more content myself; mainly graphic designs and arty projects. I have a few ideas but it’ll take a little while for me to plan this (slightly) new direction for the blog.
Stay tuned, and thanks for visiting 🙂
I have been working on putting together this Skillshare class
for a while now, and it’s finally finished 🙂
In the bite-size lessons, I will teach you exactly how to make a miniature hand-bound book.
Each book is finished with a smart leather cover, and measures only 1″ wide!
The mini books have stitching down the spine (rather than just glue) to make them extra durable, which means that they can be used to actually write little messages in. And, if you add an eyepin, you can turn it into a necklace pendant if you like.
Thanks to anyone who enrols!
Sorry for the sporadic posting of late; My excuse is that I’ve been busy making and listing new jewellery in my shop
over the last few months 🙂
I’ll be putting over 70 new items on sale by New Year (hopefully), so please drop by to have a look!
This post is just a shameless plug for my new Society6 shop :p
I opened the shop a couple of weeks ago and am currently working on filling it with patterns and graphics I’ve created, plus photos I’ve taken over the years… so it should be pretty full by the time I’ve finished!
