RC Update


We’re finally back on the blog!

We’ve been very quiet on our social medias lately but very busy behind the scenes! I’ve only got one week until I finish my first year of counselling skills and I’m really excited to (hopefully) have more time for RC. I’ve been so busy with work this month that I’ve hardly made any new products.

In other news, I’ve finally got some market dates in the RC diary (yay!) So I’ll be sharing those with you all on Friday . With that comes lots of preparation and making so it’s set to be a busy month.I’m trying to get everything done as quickly as possible but it’s not exactly going to plan, despite this, I’m looking forward to what summer has to offer us!

I’ve got a few ideas for some new products but I’ll be sure to top up our current stock very soon. I’m in the process of planning our media posts and I’ll be doing my best to stick to them.  I’m hoping that we’ll be back to posting updates more often as well as sharing our new ideas, products and fave fives!

FFF

As all sewing bees know, pin cushions are a must have, and this week, we’re showing off our favourite five designs.


We are so happy we stumbled across this little one! Here we have the handmade, cacti pin cushion from the Warm Grey Company. You can get it from their Etsy Shop for just £10. cacti

There’s nothing better than keeping this personal, and you can do just that with your pin cushion from Rosie Bull Designs. We love that they have used an old sewing machine as their design. Our first pouches were made with an old Singer sewing machine so this pin cushion design is a definite favourite of ours!

Hand embroidery makes us very happy and so does this pin cushion! You canget yours Peggy and Luce  for just £6.

These lovely little letter pin cushions from My Baboo are yet another way to make it personal.

Anything watermelon is great, so we particularly like the idea of making your very own watermelon pin cushion, using a kit from The Make Arcade. We’ve seen some of her kits around before and we’ll be sure to get our hands on one or two!

Five Fave Friday

This week, we’re showing you our top five stationary bits! Makers all love making, but the admin side, not so much. To get us through we can’t stop buying cute stationary bits to make it a little more pleasing on the eye!

 

We found this little buy in John Lewis and they are so handy now we’ve bought a peg board for our workstation! This jar of black pegs are just £3.99 and you get so many! we love the finish of them as well as the packaging they come in. IMG_1675


PAPER CLIPS ARE A MUST. These giant paper clips come in handy not only to keep all our papers together, but fabric too! If we don’t want to ruin the fabric but putting pins in them, we keep them secure using paper clips! IMG_1678


Pen pots, keep them everywhere. If you follow us on instagram, you may remember that time I became a crazy and proud plant lady. After re-potting our cacti’s, we used the terracotta pots to keep our pens in one handy place. IMG_1685


Keep it colourful! Colouring pens and pencils are great during the designing process, we keep them contained in a colourful tin and matching tray.  IMG_1681


Shelves! We are hoarders of notebooks, and we keep them all in one place. Easy to get to them and everything’s all together. Shop our notebook range hereIMG_1687

Wednesday Watch

This weeks Wednesday Watch is for our lovely pineapple pouches!

This is our largest of the current block printed pouch range and our most popular too!

The pineapple pouches is great to store a little bit of everything. Most of them are used to keep all bit of make up in one place or toiletries for when  you’re away from home. It’s large enough so you can bring more than just the essentials but fits nicely in a handbag.

We make all our pouches from scratch and love the block printing process. Our pineapple block was part of our first block printing set that we bought in August 2015 and we haven’t put it down since! This current design is in yellow on natural calico fabric. Each pouches is lined and stamped with our logo.

You can shop our Pineapple Pouch or our other pouch collections on our store.  IMG_6899

FIVE FAVES FRIDAY

WE’RE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE

FFF IS BACK!

 

It’s been a while but we’re back with our Five Faves Friday! It’s only right with all things going on at Roo’s Corner that we begin again with our top five fabrics we’ll  be working with in the upcoming weeks.

We’re going back to basics and creating lots of great pouches ready for the summer. Here’s a look of dome of the patterns you’ll be seeing about the shop.


  1. We can’t get enough of this Grey Chevron Pattern, and as soon as we saw it we had an idea of exactly what we wanted.  You may have seen our previous post about our demo pouch and that’s just what we made with is so far. After a few little tweaks, they’ll be ready to sell! IMG_1673

  2.  We can’t wait to use these dainty little floral patterns for lining some of the new pouches. As much as we love big and bold, you can’t beat simple black and white.

  3. Yes, it’s another dainty little floral design but we love the detail of having stems the little leaves dotted along them. IMG_1666

  4.  Grey faux suede, we love the texture of this and we’ll be making something a little more than a pouch with this one!  IMG_1660

As you’ve seen we like floral, even more so if it’s black and white.  So to finish off we couldn’t miss out on this pattern. We’ll be using it for most likely lining again but it’s one of our favourites. I picked this up in a lovely little shop in Dartmouth a couple of months ago and we can’t wait to get making with it! IMG_1659

RC project 

So this week we’ve been upcycling some old pieces into suitable display pieces!! 

We love doing all this stuff, admittedly, it’s probably not as good as it could be but we’re happy none the less. All we have to do now is stencil & paint our new logo and banner on and it’ll be complete! 

We’re starting to take a look at potential markets to attend this summer time so keep an eye out for our schedual! 

Monday 9th May

Hi all!

We can’t believe how fast this year is going, I’m sure May will be over before we know it, despite this we are trying to enjoy spring as we go! 

As seen in previous post on both here and Instagram, you’ll see that we’re in the process of making new pouches, both collections and individual lines. We are thrilled with how the designs have turned out, it’s now just a case of making them all!

In other news, we spent today organising stock, materials and space all ready for the move downstairs to the new workbench! If you didn’t catch our post, my dad has made me a new workbench himself and we can’t wait to to get using it. (Not only of having better space to make more, but to eventually get my bedroom back!!) 

I am so very nearly finished with college, meaning I’ll have a summer full of RC. I’m already looking at possible markets to attend so keep an eye out as we’ll be posting dates and events on here as well as our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
