The first incarnation of Murmuration

The Firespiral Slings group exclusive, Murmuration, in all its guises, has to be one of the most stunning wraps. The teal green Glasto is beautifully shiny and works well with all the wefts, and has been a really popular wrap with Firespiral fans.

But way back, before the design, weft and warp were finalised, a prototype cloth was woven to see how it could potentially look. And I am lucky enough to have it to make a bag from.

So, this Murmuration is woven from cotton and uses cirrus and cobalt. You don’t get the same shimmer, but the image is really clear and bold.

I have combined the beautiful babywearing cloth with a purple lining, blue rings and a blue zip. And this will be up for sale very soon. Check out the Facebook page for more details.

So. How’ve you been?

Now Christmas and the festive period are a distant memory, my floors are again clogging up with thread and my family are accidentally treading on more sewing needles than pine needles.

The machines are back in action with various projects, orders and collections for the website. This week I have been working with a beautiful Oscha Roses ring sling, creating a tote bag, a cushion and little coin purses from the beautiful purple and grey cloth.

One other job I have had is to create a baby wearing bag from Spindrift Twilight Seafoam cloth from Firespiral Slings.

I have lots of other bits and pieces in the pipeline and am still taking orders – up to March 2017 now – so if there is anything you fancy having made, converted or even if you have the cloth to spare on no idea yet, get in touch. I love finalising projects with customers and working out the perfect product.

In the meantime, I’ll post some pics on the Facebook page of completed items, and hopefully get some stock on here soon too!
