RC: Update

Happy Thursday!

Wednesday watch! 

This month is all about launching new products an we’re happy to announce we are adding a tea towel range to our RC Home collection.  We brought a couple along with us to the Shaw House Summer Fair and we had some great feedback!
We hand print each pattern using our blocks and paints, with some designs more rustic or clean than others. Our personal favourite is the ‘Orange’ design.

We have more designs on the way but you can shop our current range here..
We’re currently giving away one free tea towel with each box of hand printed cotton napkins. Limited numbers are available so get yours while you can!

RC bundles. 
Each week we are adding a new product to the list. This week it’s our very own block printed fabrics! 

Printing our own fabric is something that we’ve always wanted to do here at Roo’s Corner, and what better way to start than small! 

Each bundle contains 6 fat quarters of  hand printed fabric, containing two of each designs. Bespoke orders can be done! For example, if you would like any more than 6 pieces or if you would all the fabric to have the same design, we’ll be printing them for you! All you’ll need to do is email us at: shoprooscorner@gmail.com. 
We’re so happy with how our little bundles have come out and we can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on them! Shop them here. 

Pouch Review 

So as some of you may have ready, we’ve spent the past week or so designing new pouches! We love the designs we’ve decided on as well as the fabrics we’ll be using.  As our Sunday Make this week we made a demo pouch and we thought we’d share our thoughts on it… 

We made this one smaller than what we want just so we get an idea of design. It’s a model of pouch we haven’t made yet and it was interesting to use a different process. 

We’ve decided it’ll be better to use one large piece of fabric rather than sewing two parts together. It’ll give the bottom more structure and a smoother surface. 

I personally like that there are no stitches viable on the top, but must admit it was tricky without our zipper foot for the sewing machine!!

The edges were a little uneven as I was pressed for time (it turns out having an extra 40 minutes does really do much). 

We’re aware of the improvements that need to be mDe and we’re adamant that we’ll have them perfected in no time at all, until then we’ll be thinking of a name!! 

   

Roo’s Random Box

 

Today, we’re showing you what could be up for grabs in a Roo’s Random Box. I personally love the idea of a Roo’s Random Box & wish they were more popular as I love putting them together!


What is Roo’s Random Box?

Roo’s Random Box is a package I put together especially for you with items depending on which price you select. We started off with three price options; £6, £10, and £15. But this week we launched the £20 option, giving you a little piece of everything!

How do we decide what goes into a RRB?

You will always get more for your money with a random box from Roo. We like to give you guys a little extra surprise in there! On many occasions we’ll put products that aren’t up on the site yet or only available to buy at fairs, making it random for you.

Why order a Roo’s Random Box?

It’s always tough when you need to decide on a gift for yourself or others. With a Roo’s Random Box it’s all done for you. No hassle and no disappointments. We like to show off our best stuff at RC and as we said before, it’s most likely you’ll be getting our handmade products that aren’t available on site or even made especially for your box.This makes each box different and gives them an individual  touch.

Our boxes are the perfect gift for others or a great little pick me up for yourself. It’s not often that we treat and surprise ourselves.

What could I get in a random box from Roo?

Here’s what you could expect from each price pack. As mentioned before, each box is different and products will vary.

£6

is a perfect way to test the waters. If you want a little taster of Roo’s Corner and what we’re about, this is the price pack for you. It’s a great little way to bulk our someone’s birthday present too. We’re a strong believer that lots of little items are better than one big one. Here we have our fabric iPhone 5 phone case, hand painted ring dish, handmade initial bracelet and one of our very pretty hand stitched coin pouches. Our coin pouches aren’t available on our new website but will most likely be in our boxes!

£10

is a great way to put a smile on someone’s face. It’s a little more luxurious than the £6 and includes more home-ware items. Here we have our hand painted ring dish again with a colour coordinated coconut bowl, along with our stamped initial bracelet, gift pouch and elephant pouch. Both of which are hand printed. In case you haven’t realised we love our pouches here at RC and we take our elephant pouch with us everywhere we go.

£15

brings a little more accessories.  A Roo’s Corner Notebook is a must have. And this design is yet another product that isn’t up for grabs on the shop. We love anything and everything with kite strings on at the moment. I’m sure you’ll be seeing the design around RC more often but for now, a  Roo’s Random Box is the only place you’ll be able to get it! We’ve got the ring dish, coconut bowl and initial bracelet from the previous plan but we’ve added a hand printed tote bag! These bags are so handy and can fit loads in. I mostly use mine to lug my laptop and both my folders in for college or an over night bag when setting up camp in Gloucestershire.

£20

I know Ii said before that less is more but in this case, bigger is better. It’s a little bit of everything here and we love it! Here we have our handmade, medium sized pouch with the bird print as well as our gift  pouch. Our initial bracelet is still in there( if you have’t guessed it’s a favourite of ours. We love enjoy making our products personal for our customers). There’s potentially two ring dishes up for grabs which both compliment the coconut bowl nicely. You’ll most likely receive a hand printed tote bag and a hand painted hardback notebook, both as handy as another. You’ll also be receiving our handmade jewellery of some kind. Maybe more than one piece too. Here is a pair of our purple flat stone drop gem earrings in their own box. All our jewellery is hand made slightly different making yours truly unique which is exactly what we’re about. This particular bundle comes to a little over £35’s worth of handmade products from RC.
