Firstly though... a couple of weeks ago I thought I would name them Body Cloths, but after thinking about it, that narrows the possibilities down to one use.
Then I thought Wash Cloths was the way to go, alas I'm too much of a thinker !
So now I think they shall be known to the world as ECO CLOTHS.
These ECO CLOTHS are all made from VINTAGE CHENILLE, all preloved, pre washed bedspreads.
The variety of fabrics is huge and being the nature of vintage, not easy to take orders, unless luck has it that I have exactly what you are after.
Their uses are many and varied, here's some examples but I'm sure you'll come up with lots of your own,
baby wash cloth, Great baby shower gift,
dish cloth, Great kitchen tea gift or stocking filler for Christmas,
general wiping in kitchen, laundry and bathroom,
great body cloth with exfoliating properties in the bathroom.
If you are using a knitted or crotched cloth at the moment, why not try the ECO CLOTH.
It's one way to help the environment!

I have started off with bibs, burper, teddy,brooches and buttons.
There will be more to come until I clear some stock to make way for new range.
I will be clearing bags, purses, luggage tags, chenille covered notebooks, cushion covers and maybe a bathmat or two and even some sewing / craft related books!
This will be on going until I have reduced my one ofs and discontinued items.
Have I forgotton anything you may like to see on sale ?
Leave a comment and I'll see if I need to clear something you may want !
What a great way to have a sale !

Thanks so much to all who entered my giveaway in the Worldwide Giveaway with Sew Mama Sew.
It was a massive result for me and I have found some gorgeous new blogs along the way!
I did the Random Generator, which included three peeps who commented on a different post, (that was Ok with me ! ) and number 83 was chosen and the winner is.........
Jamie Mueller, I have sent an email to you Jamie so you can scoot me your preferences of colour and your postal address.
It seems Jamie has a couple of gorgeous looking blogs too if you'd like to say hi ! This one and this one.
Thanks again everyone, I'll be back next week after I get over todays very successful Baby Bazaar!
Oh P.S, I do sell the odd vintage chenille fat quarter if you need to purchase in small amounts for your smaller projects instead of buying a big full bedspread and having it take up your stash space. I also buy bedspreads if you have any to sell.

This months Handmade Expo Market is almost upon us again.
The largest handmade market in Ipswich is on this Saturday 8am - 2pm,The Ipswich Turf Club, Brisbane Rd, Bundamba and will come alive again with lots of creative people who have been working hard all month for you, making lots of new and enticing goodies for the discerning shopper.
Adding to our expanding range of goods on offer, we now have 2 local farmers offering mainly local produce at each market. The quality is lovely too.
Most of our regular stallholders will be there, plus some new and different ones also.
Enjoy a coffee, dutch pancakes, cupcakes, BBQ, biscuits and slices, some cheese or olives, and much more, there is plenty of seating for you to enjoy a break in your shopping or catch up with friends for morning tea.
If you have a moment we'd love for you to fill out our customer survey on our blog to let us know how you think we are going and some more of your thoughts towards the market.
Click here to go to The Market blog
And last but not least, The QLD Rail Pioneer Steam Train will be running short rides thoughout the market for a reduced ticket price. Each ride lasts around 30 minutes and if you haven't enjoyed this experience in a while or not at all, It's great to support this local attraction as they are all volunteers and really rely on everyones support to be able to keep the train running. (Poor things are up at 3am lighting the fires).
Hope to see you Saturday.
Feel free to pass this on to everyone you know...we really appreciate you helping us in getting The Handmade Expo out there, we dont want anyone to miss out !

While mum is off browsing amongst the stalls, the kids can head off to get their faces painted, and then pop into the hall and enter our super cool colouring competition ( for the chance to win 3 X $25 vouchers to be spent at ANY Brisstyle members store/market stall.)
Dad can grab a sausage and a drink and have a little sit down in the church grounds, and if it's more food you are after there will be Fairy Floss and Boutique Snow cones too.
We will also have our very own Brisstyle Faerie wandering the grounds to keep the little ones entertained with lots of bubbles, balloons and laughter.
Cant wait to see you there!
Please pass on to all your friends !
