Sorry peeps - i managed to have a snooze on the couch before i could post DAY 18!! Opps...anyways, 'Levi + Coal' is a randomly retro and absolutely gorgeous!! This lil number is in shades of coal and apricot...with a brown polkadot appliqued cross, handstitching and a snippet of the label that once belonged to Levi's jeans(his long legs really helped in making the strap + body of this Busy!)
what i love about making Busy Jones ...is putting in welt pocket on the strap. I love love love making it a complete feature...a splash of random colour...the totally unexpected pocket!!! This pocket is lined in a kitschy koo koo giggling cabbages upcycled cotton
Appliqued or handstitched X's are definitely the Sparky signature(Ya'll don't be fooled by immitations!!)...they kinda remind me of a handmade stitch + OXO's...so ultimately you know that this lil character has been handmade + with a lotta love!!!
And i had to share a morsel of the coolest apricot curtain i have ever laid my hands on!!!...
Righto hope you all had a fantabulous weekend, mine was filled with lots of napping, so i would have more than enough energy for the next few weeks...its gonna be BUSY!!
So don't forget....the Sparky etsy store will be shut for a month..but the 'pop up' Sparky BigCartel shop is still open...until the 29th feb!!!
bye bye for now :: lil jj
