Patches Fair 2013

December 03, 2013 / by / 0 Comment

Our second event was the awesome ‘Patches Fair’ last Sunday. ‘Patches’ is a hand-made seasonal market that happens in Malta. Have to say that this is one of the best things to ever happen to local DIY / craft / handmade / general art lovers. There are so many talented creators showcasing and selling everything from tailored clothes, handmade jewelry, hand poured candles, quirky toys, beautiful ceramics and much much more. Our stand was of course, based on illustrated material. For Patches, we created 3 greeting ‘cookie’ cards. Each card comes with a cookie (variations: Lavender, lemon & chocolate) and a pull-out recipe for that particular cookie. Each of us baked a different cookie and we worked together to create these cards. Ruth drew the dot-rendered cookies, I rendered them in Photoshop and helped Sarah with the Layout. Sarah finalised the layout and did her own additions to it, created patterns and motifs in the background, and of course, carefully silk screen printed all three cards and their recipes!

We are very happy that the cards have been a success and we have also been approached to sell them in a gift shop. We also had Ruth’s Mum’s ever popular pumpkin, raisin and cinnamon jam for sale, and a few other prints & illustrations.
