Two very appealing stalls at the Nelson Saturday morning market.
First up'Piccalilli'. Deborah makes enchanting clothes for little boys and girls using re-cycled vintage blankets. ( lots available, and kiwis know their wool)
They are very well made and have a lovely, gentle, old fashioned look....... A.A.Milne or 1930s Nursery Rhymes . Heirloom garments for sure, that also sell on Felt, the NZ craft site.
Note the handmade buttons and the blanket labels.
I was also very taken with Atticusfinch. Using up-cycled fabric, specially wool, Shelley's hand made clothing and accessories
have more of a Brothers Grimm, or Hans Christian Anderson folk lore look. I think the above cap is straight out of Hansel and Gretel.
Now, all I need is a toddler to buy for.
