will go medieval on yo’ S

And by S, I am talking about SUMMER.

The creative people behind Folk Fiction and Happy Garaje are organizing a Medieval Day and it’s looking like it’s going to be one for the history books.

 

I was just lamenting that there are not that many handmade fairs (or bazaars, for that matter) happening in the city. But a day after the last bazaar we joined, we got a message from the organizers of Medieval Day and the rest, as they say, is history.

Inspired by the Game of Thrones Tribute exhibit that will also be happening at the event, I carved the following stamps. Turned them into fabric using textile ink. Their last stop will be pouches, of course. 

Stay tuned for updates!

weekend at the eskina

*eskina means corner in our dialect, FYI

The weekend bazaar offered me many things, but mainly, it gave me a taste of what it’s like selling during a non-Christmas season. It also gave me a tan. I am not complaining; cloudless skies is a good thing, especially for a bazaar happening outdoors. I am simply stating that my face is now a new shade of brown. It’s a blessing in disguise, really, because now I have even skin tone.

Here was my display during the first day:

I shared the booth with three other crafty ladies.

Mix & Match Handmade Accents by my college buddy Ann:

Papersandtschai journals and stationery by Tschai:

And oh-so-pretty washi tapes by She Crafts:

Meream, beer crates, and a beautiful tree trunk.

While the afternoons were unforgiving, the nights at the bazaar venue were lovely. Despite the loud music, that is.

This is where I say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who dropped by our booth of handmade goodies. Thank you to the organizers for the invitation. Thank you to the nice people who said that my items were cute or that they recognize me from TV or that they follow my blog/Facebook page/Instagram. You are all sorts of wonderful but I bet you already know that.

See you at the next bazaar! You may also check out my online shop, THIMBLECAP or grab some of my items at The Chillage here in Cebu.

this is not your average handmade book purse

And by that,  I mean it’s not made of an actual book. I’m sure you know what I’m referring to.

THIS book purse, however, is made of fabric and has a book design.

Inspiration came when I was trying to decide what to do with the leftover fabric from a recent jewelry organizer commission. I wanted to create another purse design that would somehow fall under “everyday things.” I like to sew purses of non-purse things, you see.
