South African inspirations available in store…

I would like to start off by thanking everyone who came and supported Handmade By Me at the Constantia Gift Fair this last week. We had a disastrously rainy and windy start on Wednesday morning, but by Friday everything was well under way, and it turned out to be a very enjoyable and successful week.

Now I know I have introduced my new South African inspired range to you before (for those of you missed the previous post click here), but I wanted to share the photos from the product shoot that I did. They all sold so well at the Constantia Gift Fair, and make really great gifts for friends and family overseas as they are super easy to post. The cushion covers are available filled or on their own. Chat to me about sending gifts overseas for you, I have designed some beautiful Christmas gift wrap and will be offering a gift wrap and post service from now until Christmas.

Available now from The Shoestring Collective Pop-Up Shop and The Handmade By Me Online Shop, and various other stockists : )

For all of you who are not Handmade by Me facebook fans I thought I might fill you in on some of the recent press and online activity surrounding some of Handmade by Me’s cushion covers and designs. Most of the coverage has been associated with Meekel the fabulous online shop in South Africa which stocks my lovely cushion covers, but there has also been a lovely mention about my lazy lazer cut design, me and my blog on the Elle Decoration SA blog (how exciting!)! I have listed the various links below and included a pic of the feature in Conde Naste Garden & Home for you to peruse at your leisure.
