Hello, thanks for stopping by. People often ask me where I draw my inspiration from for my teepee appliques, the truth is it comes from everywhere, from things I see on the street to fashion and interiors I see on-line, here’s a little behind-the-scenes look into what triggered this teepee design I finished yesterday. I saw the above interiors image on Pinterest recently and loved the colour palette so much I wanted to use it in my work, utilising some of my folkart floral applique patterns and matching some of the fabrics from my stash I was able to create a similar palette. I opted for a paler pink in the end which I think works pretty well here and I just love the zesty Kelly green rabbit under the window.

More picture details over on my Etsy store. *This design is now sold but another little floral number in purples and greens has taken it’s place. However, you can still see more photos on the Moozle Flickr pages here.

Don’t Forget to Pack the Teepee

Hi, don’t forget to pack your Moozle teepee when you go on holiday – that’s what we did on a recent trip to Sardinia, I just took the fabric teepee (folded up it takes hardly any space in your suitcase) and then I picked up 8 bamboo fishing nets for €1.50 each at the local super market and a roll of parcel tape. The bamboo was celo-wrapped in brightly coloured plastic so I peeled it off around the top to have the natural bamboo showing. By taping the bamboo rods together as in the photo above they were quite strong.

Not only pretty in the photos but great extra shade on the beach too.

It was the perfect Sunday afternoon family activity for today… berry picking! The kids loved discovering all of the different varieties, picking (and eating… sssssh, don’t tell) the raspberries, blue berries, logan berries and honing bos (not sure what these are in English), very delicious, kind of sticky to the touch. I’ve never had such fresh blueberries. All these berries were picked right here in Amsterdam for just €8.00.

We are having ours served over Greek yogurt and drizzled with organic honey.
