A Little about Tattered Inspirations

Tattered Inspirations is a little business which aims to provide products with a vintage heart to use in your crafts - be it scrapbooking, card making or other crafty pursuits.

The Tattered Inspirations shop is here
Tattered Inspirations

Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

Seam Binding - is finished and up on etsy

Here you go everyone.... its hand dyed, variegated, vintage and beautiful........It makes awesome bows and no piece is the same as another.... you will see why it is so popular when you have some in your hand! You certainly wont see this is in a shop.

Last time I sold out in 18 hours - that was a test run .... this batch is from the USA and while it takes a while to get here it certainly has the look I love..... a bit more open weave with a slight sheen and thankfully it picks up colour easily in a random pattern which makes it intriguing to use.

I had a wonderful time the other night - getting it all ready and the table looked interesting too with all these little hills of colour. I have to say my kitchen bench is still recovering from staining - but at least it is pretty - note to self - put absorbent paper down under dyes to protect kitchen bench!!

Now available on my Etsy shop at $5.50 including a hat pin.

Matching hat pin sets will be available tomorrow - that coordinated.

Also look out for 5 new kits this weekend

Loving this journey and thanks for all your support
