Crafty Folk Round Robin

Remember our Craftyfolk lady? She's recently continued her travels around the country and here's an update of how she's looking. You may remember that her hair was given a fabulous golden glow by Lu of Handmade in Keswick?

Her next stop was Hannah of Squintessential who 'glammed' her up even more with watercolour pencils and clear glitter. She's looking very sparkly!

Next stop was Karen of Frou Frou Felt where she was given this beautiful felted flower:

She reminds me of a flamenco dancer now! Keep an eye on the blog for the next stage in her transformation.....

In our last post, we showcased some of the amazing work from the CraftyFolk team on Etsy as part of the inspiration item challenge. The idea was for everyone to come up with their own item based on this beautiful Ipad case from Whimsy Woo Designs:

Inspired by CraftyFolk

Its been a while since our last post but we put that down to being so busy with all the new team activities.....well partly!

One activity has been a wonderful inspiration challenge suggested and organised by Sue of LynwoodCrafts. The idea was that those involved put forward an item to be used as an inspiration and we voted for our favourite. The winner was this beautiful Ipad Case by WhimsyWooDesigns:

Once the inspiration item was chosen, we all went on to produce items of our own based on the Ipad case, taking inspiration from the colours, feel or design. Here's the first few finished items, I'm sure you'll agree how amazing they are and how many different interpretations there were of one item:


Deborah Jones Jewelry 

Lillys Night Garden

Whimsy Woo Designs 

One Little Pug 

Heket Designs

Miss Bohemia

Frou Frou Felt

Amazing! The challenge isn't yet closed so watch this space for more fabulous interpretations.
