Today we welcome fairy tale fair newcomer Darcy & Flo, and their wonderful handmade dolls, made from the most gorgeous fabrics! Find out more about them…
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
Darcy & Flo designs and makes quirky, bright, affectionate and collectable textile dolls with a pretty hand embroidered face that makes you smile as you walk by. For Spring 2014 we are launching a range of lovely quilts, cushions and other pretty things to compliment our jolly dolly range.
How long have you been making your craft items?
I have always sewn and crafted since learning as a child with my mother, through to making clothes as a teenager and now in recent years I have been making quilts, cushions and textiles dolls
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
Dollies, dollies and more dollies! There must be lots of little (and not so little) girls beds with a Darcy & Flo doll on them.
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
I enjoy creating something beautiful that will be loved and enjoyed by others. What is so great about having a stall at fairs and markets is that you get to see the response to your work. My dolls always make people smile, whether they stop and chat or just browse on their way by.
Will you have some special Spring time Easter creations for sale?
I have some pretty spring like fabrics that I am going to use to make some new dolls, especially for the Fairy tale fair. And I am launching my new range of quilts, cushions and other pretty things.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
I have been a regular at Makers Boutique in Brighton, Jessie Jumbles Marvellous Fairs and Handmade with Love @ Tunbridge Wells and this springtime at Horsham. It is great how much effort goes into event planning now to make it a really enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
For Darcy & Flo to be a huge success on the scale of Cath Kidston. You’ve got to have a dream…!
