I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of Confetti Studio this past weekend. Two of my very favorite bloggers, Annabel Wrigley of Little Pin Cushion Studio and Alessandra Gutierrez of Tribal Times and Lala’s Pequenos, have teamed together to take over the fabric, glitter, twine, crafting world. This is the place where fashion and art combine to create imaginative functional objects. Together they are unstoppable and their studio is… well…an amazing combination of light white, filled with layers upon layers of vibrant color, to say the least. Even the air cascading through the windows is filled with transparent glitter. Everywhere you look there is something appealing to touch, make or buy. Well done ladies!!! For more on Alessandra and Annabel, the studio, classes and products for purchase, visit Confetti Studio.net.
Lala’s Pequenos currently specializes in noonies, the infant eco-friendly swaddler. The noonie is a sweet way to wrap your babe up like a bean, whilst holding them in your loving arms. Lala’s Pequenos also has a new line of children’s clothes coming out this fall/winter, on shelves by holidays. For more visit Lala’s Pequenos
In addition to these beautiful handmade characters and accessories, Annabel has her first book coming out with all the magic behind the stitching. Along with her amazing blog, she also teaches sewing to children and workshops for adults. One of my favorite workshops is how to make a pouf. Vimeo tutorial, Annabel, for readers not in town? For classes, tutorials and workshops visit littlepincushionstudio. Stay tuned for the brains behind the the owls eyes.
