Beth Sprouts; if i lived in a shell

So I got wedded and this was an illustration created by the talented Steven Peebles, off of Mollusk Magazine, for the kiddies table mat. I LOVE IT.

Mollusk magazine to quote themselves, 'is a quarterly magazine which is about promoting new and upcoming artists in all fields, from illustration to photography, music to Nicolas Cage; each issue features an eclectic mix of fresh new photos, stylistic art, and interviews from those new artists willing to lend their services.'

And my wedding, well, 'it was fabulous!'


Beth Sprouts Handmade; me and my teddy bear

So here is my 'fairtrade' creation.

A pair of saggy bottomed cerise velvet overalls. I have already washed the car in them, of course. The little ted was a gift from my mum a few years ago, it is amazing the colour is exactly the same! And amazing how I managed to get such a teddy bear shaped rear view on the overalls.

The little clutch bag is of the same fabric, with a contrasting blue zip. You can't see it, but it is lined with a lovely liberty fabric remnant. NOW, I am pretty sure I have somewhere in my sketchbooks from a few years ago a design for the bag - which I never made - and then of course Celine has gone and done it.

I should also mention the T-shirt is also fairtrade - I have made two striped shirts with this pattern. I love it. Very airy, and there's something a bit more interesting about a T-shirt not made from jersey.
