Saselven is having a make-over!

It is time for Saselven to come out of the dark and make an impression on the hand made market. So I have decided on a complete make-over of my name, design and products.

I am so excited to be working with Jen from Smudge Design between us we hope to come up with a new and exciting look for Saselven. A slight name change could also be on the list of things to do, as well as a second store. I am concerned my children's creations are getting lost in with my other lines and they are not getting the attention they deserve. In the doggy dog world of Children's Clothing you really need some kind of edge.

There is a section of the community out there, from Caring Mothers, Excited Aunties and Adoring Grandparents, that like to have the children in their lives to be in matching ensembles. So with that in mind my next step will be, to add to my range, a selection of matching dresses with sun hats, bags, shoes, etc. Vests, shirts, pants, sun hats and backpacks for the boys.

This is what I have put together for a Market night on the 17th August... it will sell for $65... once the market finishes, it will be for sale for $77.

This is the sort of thing I will be doing more of. What do you think? There is an Owl Softie being made now to go with this ensemble as well, it will be sold separately though. 

I have also had a go at designing softies... not as successful as I would like, but I will show you what I came up with never the less.

I think I have a little to learn, but I had fun just the same...her legs are a little too far apart. Next one I will correct that... I need to look at some faces and see if I can improve on hers as well... although I do not want them all the same. She is also probably a little large, she stands 66.5cm or 26 1/4" in the old scale. All in all, I have been getting some nice comments about her, so feel as if she is a total failure.

On that note I am off to set up the machine and get ready for a day of sewing tomorrow... Night all, sweet dreams.
Cheers Sas.

  1. I love the dress, hat and bag idea Sas and these ones look so lovely in this fabric. I wish me little girl was still little enough to wear these sort of things lol.
