Flo-Jo Boutique

Today I tried out the Gillian Gladrag felt corsage making kit and I chose the 'Plum Pudding' to try and make. Felt is sometimes really tricky to make but this kit wrote out the instructions in such a way it seems possible. It takes some hard work to make the felt but the end results are great. Even putting the corsage together was simple.

We are getting ready for Christmas at Flo-Jo Boutique, I have been given the job of making little Christmas decorations which will hang in the window. The decorations are made out of Riley Bake material, there are small decorations and large. The small ones each have an individual picture printed on them that resembles Christmas and the large ones spell 'Holiday cheer' when put together. There was a lot of sewing and stuffing involved but it was worth it.

Day One Ruby's Work Experience!

My work experience; when I first thought about work experience Flo-Jo Boutique popped into mind because of the variation of things I could do related to textiles and design. My first day went well, just helped around the shop, sorted out orders, and got asked to make a button necklace and cuff. The instructions were extremely easy to follow and the kit provided you with everything you needed. The kit gave you a good selection of buttons and threads to create your necklace and cuff.     
The Button Bag craft kit is being sold at Flo-Jo Boutique for £14.
