    I m working on lots of things behind the scenes and I m sorry I ve been so quiet on my blog for so long I m hoping to get back into blogging on more of a weekly basis quite soon but I have a few more hurdles to jump before I can commit to that so please bear with me while I put the finishing touches to a few things here and there After a few mentoring sessions last year I ve made lots of plans for this year and beyond and I m steadily working my way through these Progress is slow but steady I ve been busy this year working on my new website which I m hoping to launch quite soon It s been a really lengthy process not only because I m going to be changing the focus of the site from a website to an online shop but also because in the process of doing this I ve really had to focus on my product ranges and how I present them As I m gradually making the move away from Milomade being a suplimentary income I ve had to rethink the way I want to work and what is the best way to work I decided last year that I don t want to do craft fairs anymore and want to focus instead on direct sales from my studio online sales and wholesale This means that I m rethinking my pricing as well as the products I will be offering for sale and adapting these for different markets This next step has taken me on so many tangents that sometimes it s been hard to concentrate It s not just about getting a new website it s about totally rethinking Milomade I ve made some really bold decisions along the way so far and I m hoping to continue to do so until I feel comfortable with what I m creating I m having to rethink a lot of things There are so many products that were great for craft fairs that I feel no longer fit in So I ve had to make the decision as to whether to ditch them or rework them A lot of products have been ditched as I make this cull but a lot have also been rethought and repackaged to appeal better to an online market as well as a wholesale market I ve also realised that I need to think along the lines of collections and develop new products based on what I already have so that I can offer more of a package rather than single one off items I m attending the BCTF this weekend as a visitor and it s going to be a great eye opener I ve never been to a trade show before and it s going to be fascinating to see how people present themselves and their work I m not only going to be looking at stand design

  • Making Fused Plastic | Milomade
    was experimenting and learning at the same time the images in the tutorial below show different bags all at different stages I hope it s not too confusing What you will need Sharp Scissors Plastic Bags Iron Ironing Board Greaseproof Paper Large Wooden Chopping Board Metal Ruler Craft Knife Cutting Mat Step One The first thing you need to do is lay your plastic bag out flat and cut off the bottom and the top so that you re left with a large tube of plastic Stretch and flatten this out and put aside Do the same with all your plastic bags so that you have them ready You will need 3 to 4 bags for one fused sheet Step Two Put the wooden chopping board onto of your ironing board and cut two pieces of Greaseproof paper that are slightly bigger than the board and sandwich your first plastic bag between them Switch your iron on you ll have to play around with the temperature until you find the right setting for your iron I started on the lowest setting which did nothing to my plastic and gradually made it hotter and hotter until the plastic began to fuse You won t be able to iron the entire bag all at once and will have to just do it in stages and iron section after section Keep checking and see how it s doing If you rub it between your fingers and it moves and rustles it s not fused Make sure to keep your iron moving at all times and try not to overwork any particular area Vary your speed according to the heat of the iron if it s warm you can move slowly if it s hot you have to move quickly The plastic will shrink and if you keep your movement of the iron at a regular speed and cover the whole area you re working on the plastic should fuse and shrink evenly Peel it away from the Greaseproof paper and then move it so that you can work on the next un fused section Carry on doing this until the entire sheet is fused Step Three Build up the layers Take your next plastic bag and place this on top of your first fused one and then repeat step three until the second bag is fused to the first It helps to turn the fused plastic over and iron on both sides I did this with every bag addition Step Five Once you fused all of your bags together you can then embellish the sheet with cut out shapes from coloured plastic bags just use the same technique and be extra vigilant so that you don t accidentally melt or burn the sheet by overworking an area I found some bags in Tesco the other day that have a lovely design on them and so after making my plastic orange using a Sainsbury s bag I then cut out the Tesco design and
