Roses and Hats

At the moment here at Coulter and Coulter, I have been busy playing about with some ideas I had for Napier Rose fabrics. As usual what started out as an attempt to be subtle, turned out to be something quite different, and I love it.
I have also been getting more hats completed and ready to be listed for sale on Felt. The hat below has been made from a beautiful vintage french fabric.
The other half of Coulter and Coulter has been busy in the garage making a display stand for my Christmas items. I will have pictures very soon, I hope.

Talking about Christmas

Since I mentioned Christmas in my last post I thought you might like a sneak peak at what we are planning for the festive season.

Still busy

Its been a while since our last post. We have been kept really busy, preparing for the Craft Market, getting new ideas off the ground and thinking about Christmas. Yes the big X is on its way again.

Vintage fabric Hats

To make our lovely recycled bags, which are given away with purchase instead of brown paper bags, I have been collecting a lot of beautiful vintage fabrics. Trawling the internet and fossicking through op shops - I know, its hard work but somebody has to do it. I have found some really lovely bits and pieces. While sewing up another batch of bags ready for the next craft market I suddenly had an idea. Summer hats, we all need them down here in the Southern hemisphere and what a fantastic use of the oddments of vintage fabrics I have been collecting. Keep an eye on our Felt shop, I will be listing them there in the next couple of days.
