Baggelboy: Artist and illustrator. At the moment I live in Cambridge a small medieval city on the edge of the world. Originally from London I came here to study illustration and found the medieval life suited me.
The linocut pictures I make come from a mixture of the fun side of our darker life and the fairy tales that Grandma used to tell us. They are firmly rooted in the tradition of Medieval woodcuts and early book printing but with a little twist in the tail. Some of these pictures will become book illustrations and others are workings for larger prints and posters.
If you’re searching for an alternative to traditional “children’s room art” look no further.
Tony, Mitch, Nikki, Dan, Omar, Mo, and Lauren have been “speaking to kids” through our graphic design work (mostly schoolbooks) since 1989. We thought it might be fun to brighten up kid’s walls with cute and fun prints (and we were itching to flex our creative muscles, too!). We hope you find something you and your kid can enjoy together.
We really appreciate your interest, ’cause it allows us to have fun and escape our day jobs (if only for a short time)…
You see, 3CD is a Chicago-based graphic design firm which has created a heck of a lot of educational work (that means schoolbooks). So who knows, you may have seen some of our handiwork in a classroom near you already!
We decided to offer KidStuff ’cause we like designing for kids and for the most part, we just never grew up!
Aren’t they great? $25 each, 3 for $65, or 4 for $85 from 3CD KidStuff.
I’m lucia squillari and I’ve always had a soft spot for sewing and crafting, of any kind… basket making, crochet, knitting, beadworking, sewing, spinning….
the people behind larimeloom are:
me, I am 21 and do most of the weaving, the sewing, the spinning, modeling and computer work (photo editing, listing writing).
Melissa (mamma) is the big thinker, having many little cubbies to look after. she often comes to me in the morning to tell me all about some great brainwave she’s had overnight..
also, she is the photografer , along with Shanty, (8 yrs) my little sister. they take great shots!! :)
all our items are 100% handmade, starting from the designs, all of which are created without patterns, I often do not even draw the idea down, I just lay the cloth out and grab my scissors and cut, fingers crossed for decent results :)
I am terribly impatient and what I love about etsy is that I have total freedom of doing what I want. I usually make only one of each item because I get bored making others exactly the same.
each idea brings on several new ideas, both from me and my mom.
I recently started spinning, on an old vintage spinning wheel, it is SO much fun! you can now find colorful handspun yarns in our shop!
I’m lucky enough to be going on holiday soon, so I’ve actually been the target audience to all the swim wear on offer in the high street. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve wasted looking through rails of clothes and trying on various combinations of bikini tops, tankini tops, bikini bottoms, coordinating skirts and one-piece swimming costumes. It’s actually been doing my head in. You can’t do it quickly either! In order to try on swimwear, you have to take (almost) absolutely everything off! (Then of course, you need a different size and being a British citizen, rather than an American one, (and not shopping in high class, super expensive establishments), this means getting at least partially dressed again, scurrying across the shop and back to the changing rooms hoping for better luck this time.)
Ok, enough of my whinging. Shopping is supposed to be fun isn’t it? Well, it’s always fun on etsy! I can waste hours of my time window shopping on etsy, but it’s so much more enjoyable because the swimwear is different, unique and so much more a joy to look at. Unfortunately this didn’t occur to me until just now, and just now is too late to order something in time for my holiday. For some reason I suppose I assumed swimwear wouldn’t be available handmade.
One of my favourites is the one above by My Sugar Doll. Little poodles printed on the lycra fabric is genious! It’s very cute, but a little bit naughty as well.
I am always a fan of 50s style clothing and I actually discovered this swimwear maker in an article in an antiques magazine! Anna Winston makes them by the sea near Hastings, UK, where I regularly used to drive down to for fish and chips, usually in the rain, where we’d park by the shore next to the fishing boats and watch the waves crash on the pebbles! Ok, enough of my reminiscing – take a look at these gorgeous swimming costumes. I love them. “If a woman feels comfortable and elegant on the beach then she’s more inclined to enjoy herself,” she says. I completely agree.
I also love this electric blue bikini, made to order by LoveLucyBea. In her shop there are all kinds of unusual designs in lots of different colours. Definitely worth checking out. I just love all the ruffles!
If you’re wondering what I bought for my holiday in the end, well I bought a bog standard purple bikini and made myself a pixie style dress to wear over the top (from my roll of black lycra I usually use for waistbands), and cut little holes in it so the purple shows through.
Winter Lights Clothing: I specialize in original one of a kind clothes for chicks who aren’t afraid to show off their curves.
I believe that every garment in existence would look 36,000,000 times prettier with corset lacing and ruffles. ^__^
I’ve been sewing for going on 10 years, and the past few have been devoted to clothing. I am self-taught and don’t care much for patterns, so I only have made a few basics that I use. Sewing should be fun and intuitive in my opinion, therefore I have a fondness for ‘winging it’ and ‘seeing what happens’.
