Cushions Galore…

The New Year is looking bright here at Dizzy Tyke Designs. Late last year I  branched out into embroidery work to compliment , embellish and enhance my  knitting designs and products.
 The arrival of Bertha a Brother PR1050X a couple of weeks ago has meant I have been able to review my production costs of  embroidery and appliqué, these price reductions are now starting to filter through to my web site and soon to be on other on line shops including Etsy and Folksy.  The savings have been further enhanced as I have changed my preferred postal service to Hermes, who are delivering trackable parcels in 48hours.

So keep an eye out for new cushion  designs and knitwear embelsihments including this yoga inspired design with a tartan theme.

Many of the  fabrics I use are end of role or repurposed new products ( e.g excess store stock such as  new curtains or  throws), I also source fabric sample books from stores that are replacing them, these make amazing appliqué fabrics. This material sourcing process enables me to minimise production costs and to  put perfectly good materials back into the production cycle in this throw away world.  However, this does mean there is only limited stock and production of each cushion and material combination.

Release of the  Birtsmorton and Dunhampton patterns have been delayed for a few weeks, but I anticipate they will be launched well in time for easter and the arrival of spring. The Birtsmorton is a delightful spring cardigan with a cable detail and the Dunhampton is a cape inspired by the new Frozen film. Join my mailing list , just tick box and add your details to be the first to ge these patterns when released. 

How Cute !
