Glasgow Craft Mafia

Posted on October 10, 2008 by

So, me and Panda-san are members of the Glasgow Craft Mafia; a collective of crafty types here in the West of Scotland. I thought I’d have a browse round the other members’ sites and see what cute stuff they be makin’.

First stop, of course, was a visit to the ever-cute Ding Dong Designs, run by the lovely Josie and her mum who is a whiz on the knitting needles. You may not ever have thought you had a need for finger puppets of Batman and Robin, the A-Team, Homer Simpson or the entire cast of Star Wars but you do now, right? Oh, the fun we had at tedious job of boredom thanks to Panda-san’s Mr T.

On the other side of cute is The Curious Swift’s kowaii kawaii jewellery. That’s “spooky cute” y’know. Mr Ghost here is certainly both of those things and is available in both necklace and brooch form. Raar.

Robot alert! This fine fellow is called Arthur – he likes mayonaise and Fondant Fancies (though not together) and he doesn’t like loud noises or lint. A robot after my own heart there! He’s lovingly hand-stitched by Kimberly at Madness of Many and he can be yours, right now!

It’s a sad tale but I’m allergic to all kinds of stupid stuff so a lot of jewellery is off limits. It’s fun to look though and this matryoshka necklace by T-Boo is just adorable. Available in lots of different colours too!

And finally, are your wrists feeling a little cold in this Autumnal weather? I know mine are and this lovely vintage fabric cuff by Merulapie is just the thing. There’s lots of patterns to choose from, and no nasty metal bits to irritate my delicate bunny fur. Result!

If you’re in Glasgow, you can catch the Mafia at one of our regular indie markets. In case you don’t know, I’m Asking For Trouble and Panda-san is Miso Funky. We make cute things too :)
