Pink Flamingo's New Sheffield Range

I love finding new things to make and sell. I also love vintage maps; any excuse to combine the two has me very excited! And that's exactly what I've done with my new I Love This Place - Sheffield range.

I've been making greeting cards with old maps for a few months and I'm amazed how popular they've been. They were just a little idea one day so I made a few and took them into Bird's Yard in Sheffield - and they sold out! So I've kept taking them and now these cards have inspired this new range.

Anyone who knows Sheffield (or Sheffielders) will know what a proud city it is so I knew my cards would get some interest - it just surprised me how much! Customers have bought them from Bird's Yard, Frankly My Deer and at markets and they've been sent all around the world.

So, to match the cards I decided to make some matching items. I've been gathering supplies:

And then I've turned them into my new range!
