Well, tomorrow is the big launch of the ‘Oh Bless’ Etsy shop. Hip hip hooray!
It has been all systems go here at ‘Oh Bless’ H.Q. There are so many things to do when setting up an online shop, but I must say, it has all been very fun! (Even writing policies and other official, non-crafty things).
We have our first competition running currently: Our LAUNCH COMPETITION can be entered on our Facebook page. One of our cute little ‘Pixie’ bonnets is up for grabs. Here it is…
Entries need to be in by 12 noon tomorrow Wed the 11th March.
All instructions are on the original post on Facebook. The winner will be announced at 5.00pm tomorrow.
One of the conditions of entry is to tell us what you like about the ‘Pixie Bonnet’. So far there are a number of people who are being reminded of toadstools, fairytales and the legendary tales of Enid Blyton (one of my personal childhood faves).
I love these associations!
Now our ‘Pixie Bonnets’ are one of our own designs, but when designing this cute little hat I was inspired by vintage knitting patterns such as these.
Most of these patterns come from the 1950’s – early 1960’s. I know my Aunty wore an outfit similar to the gorgeous little ‘Pram Set’. I kinda like the ladies Pixie knit. Cute! I wonder if I can get my nan to make me one for winter?
So you can see the delightful pixie style hat has been around for a while.
What do you think of the pixie style?
