Betty and Bill’s
My shop is named after my late grandparents.
They were from the make do and mend era, there wasn’t much that they couldn’t make or mend. It is those values that are the foundations for my shop, I make and mend as much as I can, repurposing and recycling old materials, as well as new, to make unique and eye catching designs.
I sell –
100% recycled handmade paper.
10 sheets tied up with string £4.50
5 leaf sheets tied up with string £3.50
Prints onto handmade paper £11.50
I collect up my families paper recycling and use age old paper making techniques to recreate it into something beautiful. Each piece is unique and varies in texture and colour. I absolutely love the raw paper edges and the flecks of the old newsprint that come through.
These note cards are perfect for using as stationary, in art projects or for scrapbooking. And with the added benefit of being completely eco friendly.
I use my handmade paper to create original art works of the Cornish landscape that surrounds me.
I also make children’s trousers £12.50+
The trousers are made from a cotton jersey fabric, they have plenty of stretch, perfect for little ones on the move. The waistband and cuffs are made from a soft ribbed jersey fabric to provide extra comfort. The seams are all overlocked for a professional and durable finish.
