This Christmas, I’m switching a lot of my present shopping from the high street to online marketplaces like Folksy.
Buying from independent designers means you know exactly where your items came from, you get to speak to a real person, and most of the sellers allow you to add your own personal touch to your purchase.
Some of the items are really beautiful, and others are…a little odd. Take the Tech Head Fascinator on the right from Hatastic. Created using USB cables, it’s not exactly the usual head furniture you’d see at a wedding or the races.
Saying that, at least it would be a decent ice-breaker. The designer of the item was so proud of it she’s they’ve shared the step-by-step tutorial, so you can create your own.
Folksy is full of tutorials to give you a little inspiration when you fancy a bit of crafting. Just head to their Making section.
