Smallable is a design and fashion brand suitable for 0-16 years but this doesn't stop me from appreciating these wall stickers by Inke Heiland. What an excellent way to jazz up a kiddies wall...

Rebecca Newport is a freelance stylist for interiors, still life, life style and food props for categories to include magazines, brochures and online promotions. After studying textiles design at Chelsea College of Art she worked as a retail fashion and homeware buyer. Her specialty is colour and pattern and I simply adore the pieces she manages to source. I think Rebecca does a fantastic job of finding innovative ways of putting these items together.

Here are my creative weave samples. I really enjoyed learning to weave but I am glad I specialized in print at university because otherwise I would really miss painting and mixing colours. I put a variety of yarns through to include netting and newspaper. The loom took a while to set up but once the warp was on I could begin the fun part.

This weekend I had a go at Macrame. It's a really busy time of year for the 3rd year fashion students at Bath School of Art and Design and so I've been trying to help out. I was approached by fashion student Emma Tee who needed some help with Macrame. Below are some of her beautiful samples. Macrame is a form of textile making using knotting apparently crafted by sailors as a means of decorating.
Below is my sample. I was really happy to help and I gained a new skill as well as a very sweet Thank You card. I am really excited to see the show in June.
Here is the dress the Macrame is intended for to cover the models chest area.
