Beautiful Brilliant Blues from CRAFTfest

With the spring CRAFTfest event just around the corner, I've been taking a look round some of the other stalls in the same team as me - the Beautiful, Brilliant Blue Team!

There are lots of gorgeous hand crafted makes already filling up the stalls - I've selected a handful of blue themed items from a few of the Blue Team stalls to share today. And if you fancy a look round more of their work, just click on any of the links to take you straight to their craftfest stalls.

Hand crafted trinket box with blue and purple flag inlay
Flag Design Trinket Box by Norfolk Woodcrafts

Oh my goodness, this stunning cherry veneered trinket box by Norfolk Woodcrafts is so beautiful.

The flag design top is veneered with green,blue and purple dyed birdseye maple veneers. The colours are just so vibrant and you can still see the lovely woodgrain.

Cola Creations - Blue Pattern Tile Coasters

These beautiful blue pattern tile coasters from Cola Creations remind me of blue delft pottery - gorgeous colours. I just love blue and white.

Each coaster in this set of four has a different design, and is backed with felt to protect your surfaces.

Bathroom Plaque by Bizzie Me

Next up is this very pretty Butterfly plaque from Bizzie Me.

Hand painted and featuring a little Bathroom sign, this is just perfect for hanging on a bathroom door.

This one is painted in a beautiful blue which caught my eye for the blue themed blog, but BizzieMe can do them in any colour and with any text.

Heartfelt - Beach Huts Blue

Because summer is coming and today is such a gloriously sunny day with bright blue skies, I couldn't resist adding in this beach hut canvas from Heartfelt.

The blue felt background is such a striking shade which really sets off the two cute beach huts. And I just love the cute little buttons.

Teenagers Reversible Bunting - Recycled Denim and Metal Links

And finally today, while we are on the blue theme - I'd like to share one of my new ideas - Teenagers Reversible Bunting from recycled denim jeans. Each flag is made from denim cut from a different pair of jeans and has gorgeous effects from the fading and original seam stitching.

But this is bunting with a difference - the flags are linked together by metal eyelets and jump rings - you can string them up in your own pattern, including reversing some to show the brown striped fabric on the other side.

I'm hoping to do a tutorial on this bunting later this year.

I'll be back soon with some more stalls from The Blue CRAFTfest Team. Until then, I hope you have a beautiful day.
