This, ladies and gentlemen, is my new creation.
I have been waiting for the summer edition of Extracurricular magazine to come out so i can show you. I designed this little beauty especially for this issue.
I give you: the Picnic placemat roll! Headed out on picnic? Camping perhaps? Or just dining el fresco? Grab your picnic placemat roll to keep your cutlery and napkin in check. Beautiful vintage fabric on one side and nylon inner means you don’t even need a plate! Yup, that’s right folks…just wipe and go. Throw them in the wash if they get really grubby, line dry and they’re ready to go again. Years of picnicking memories are going to add up in these classy additions to your summer kit!
And look what i found in my mailbox today. Happiness. The summer issue of Extracurricular magazine. As local as you get for those NZ’ers thinking of gift ideas for the crafty/DIY/ designer/makers/creatives among us. Hop along to Extracurricular’s blog HERE and find out how to get your hot hands on a copy -it’s hot off the press. This issue comes with an Ellie illustrated bird bookmark. Love.
Also, I was asked to write the tutorial for this issue…so, you get to make your own picnic placemat rolls for your very own!
The photos and styling of the shoot was done by one glorious lady called Vanessa Parker. Check out her work: you can get to BoxBrownie.co.nz HERE. Any special photographic work coming coming up? Get in touch. Really, you need to. Her wedding work is just stunning.
Extracurricular is always such a good read, and with that certified recycled paper with it’s vegetable inks, all those crafty beauties featured and well, the whole magazine just oozing with inspiration…i reckon a subscription just might be the way to go.
So, there’s my local crafty gift ideas for the day: extracurricular magazine (or better yet, a subscription) and oh yes, GrowMama picnic placemat rolls are available in my felt shop. Click HERE for a truly unique and useful (i love that word) gift that’ll keep on giving.
