I promised you last week, so here is the End of Other Times collection's official launch! I finally finished the latest pieces, two denim skirts and two vest tops (*cough* today). There are also two new pairs of leg warmers to complete the outfits. All these are not in the Etsy shop yet but will be by the end of tomorrow.
The fifth blog post of this month, I'm really sticking to my schedule again! I took a few days off work to make most of the bank holidays and get back to sewing products for the shop. There is also a market again in May, and I like to start preparing early. So, this is a preview of the designs that will be available soon.
What a month - short but insense! We're still in lockdown here in the UK, but I was busy preparing for my first Alternative Market of the year. It went well, and I also found some treats for myself. I updated the Etsy-shop with all new products created for the market - many different pieces in a range of sizes. I hope you like them as much as I do.
This post is mostly for my readers in Germany because you can now get my patches and some other products without worrying about international shipping and customs fees. I'd like to introduce the Punkrock-Shop, which is both an online shop and a market place for punk music, clothing and much more. As a place from punks for punks, I am happy to be a part of it and hope it keeps growing.
Usually, I introduce new designs on the blog before or when they hit the shop. Last year, I didn't manage to do that because I was so busy sewing and then things sold so fast during the market season. I take photos of everything so that I don't forget what I created. As much as I'd like to show all things, to avoid disappointment, these are only the designs that are still available:
You might know, Zebraspider is going greener and fabrics are a huge part of it. Patches are definitely my bestsellers in numbers, no wonder that I would change this sooner than later. All patches are now organic. There are just a few old ones left for a reduced price. On this occasion, I also discontinued some of the less popular designs, so this is the last chance to get one of these.
This is the last part in the series of shop news for now - after I filled up the handmade tops section as well. Somehow, tops sell much faster than skirts, but I don't seem to make them as often. Maybe it's because I usually wear a lot of band shirts, although there are many cool fabrics in my stash that would make awesome shirts too.
When I signed up for the market at Tomorrow's Ghost Festival in Whitby on a short notice, I had to make some new products quickly. I haven't made arm warmers in a while, so a batch of them was my go-to choice. There are two types this time: the straight cut ones with or without cuffing and the fitted ones with thumb holes, or fingerless gloves. I picked some of my favourite fabrics that I'm sure you like too.
I haven't been in a nice place recently. It probably was a combination of a stressful summer, dealing with colds in autumn and not a lot of energy left for creative projects. My mood was declining with the light and I thought picking up a simple crochet project might help. It did. Well, a bit at least. So today I'd like to tell you the story of the red fishnet top.
You did't hear from me in a while. I had to take a pause from weekly blogging and also from social media. I was so busy preparing for the markets in October that I was a bit exhausted (and also a bit sad that the selling wasn't so successful as I thought it would be). But I created a lot of new things during that time that will make it into the shop bit by bit. Today, I'd like to tell you about the new zipper pouches.
