A Festive Gift from…The Cotton Elephant

Today we introduce to you the first of our Festive Gift posts- these are posts from Stall Holders who took part in our last fair and our back for our winter special! You can also see their original ‘Say Hello To…’ blog posts at the end of each.

We are so pleased to welcome back The Cotton Elephant and her wonderful handmade creations. Find out more…

 ‘I loved the last Fairy Tale Fair! It was great to meet so many crafty people…’- Siobhan, The Cotton Elephant

Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….

I am Siobhan, also know as The Cotton Elephant. I make cotton goodies: homeware, gifts and baby blankets. My handmade products include my sea side range (beach hut door stops, canvases and cushions), personalised playmats and blankets, and home decor items.

 What festive gifts and creations will you be selling at The Fairy Tale Fair?

I’m going to be selling Christmas decorations and Christmas bunting, alongside gifts such as make up bags. Of course, I’ll also be selling my sea side range, baby blankets and decorative items. I’ll also be taking commissions for blankets and playmats for anyone who is looking for a really special gift.

 You took part in our last Fairy Tale Fair, did you enjoy it and did you find your creations were popular with visitors?

I loved the last Fairy Tale Fair! It was great to meet so many crafty people. My lavender hearts and elephants were my most popular creation.

 Will you be taking part in other events over the festive period (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?

I will! I am taking part in one other fair in the run up to Christmas and I’ll be working away like an elf making all my Christmas orders. Each blanket takes me around 12 hours to make, so around a full time job, I’ll be pretty busy!

 Any other comments you wish to make:

I still have a few spaces left in my Christmas order book. If you’d like to order a commission please get in touch!
