Oh my goodness, I can't believe I've just written that title - where did the summer go!?
Nevertheless, here I am, up to my ears in jute bags and planning more Christmas gifts. Last year I made some adjustable Christmas bunting as a trial. Each flag, made with organic fabric and decorated with applique shapes, was sold singly and priced at £1.50 a flag which came with tape and buttons. They flew from my stall and I wished I had made more!
So, this year look out for bunting available to order from mid October. You can either purchase from my website or message me on facebook at www.facebook.com/ellyjules or come visit me on my craft stalls.
Already on the website are the return of the Christmas gifts bags made with ethically produced jute. These are perfect for little gifts and can be re-used many times. I use them for little bags of sweets, chocolates or toiletries. They are currently available in two sizes. Look out next month for the same bags in Organic red cambridge cotton. The possibilities are endless!
Finally, following the popularity of Randolph the Stag in my BEASTIES IN BONNETS collection, I will be introducing his cousin Rudolph (complete with red nose) on Organic cotton for those (like me) that love to decorate their home with a few quirky Christmas additions.
FINALLY, FINALLY! If you are an early Christmas shopper I have a little incentive to purchase gifts early!
