Cute shoulder bags, perfect for Spring and Summer

I have a couple of gorgeous and very individual shoulder bags for you, made from absolutely beautiful fabrics.

These are perfect for popping a brush, purse and lippy in, for a summer evening, and I doubt you'll see another in the same fabrics!

There are two in this listing, but I'm happy to make in any fabric you see on my site, if I have enough. This one is made from a lush Andrew Martin fabric, with images on both sides, including an elephant!

The other is made from a Japanese fabric I've used for my glasses cases, which you can see in this listing here, while the latest listing for glasses cases is here . (I can make a matching case if you wish). The Japanese fabric has proved very popular.

Again, more of the same design on the reverse.

Both have a simple button finish, from my vintage collection, with a fabric loop to hook over. The opening is approx 24 cm from strap to strap, and the depth laid flat is approx 18 cm.

I've popped them under my mannequin to give you an idea of the look.

Each is lined. And wonderfully cute! Handmade and totally individual - at a bargain price.

Gorgeous selection of fabric glasses cases: Treat your specs!

I made my first glasses case a long time ago, after having been guilty of popping my glasses into my bag, because I didn't like the bulky case that came with them. So I made myself a fabric case out of some of my favourite fabrics. It worked well and last year I decided to make some to pop on here. My previous listing (here) of glasses cases proved very popular and I've now made another selection for you. 


Each case is slightly different, using fabrics from Laura Ashley, Cath Kidston, and Liberty, but also a rather lovely fabric I sourced in France (the geese!), a fab world traveller fabric, and a very funky and totally adorable cow/farm print I sourced in America. Some are patched from two different fabrics (the rosali check and rosali floral, and the one made from Cath Kidston red rose).
As ever, click on the pictures to see the cases close up.

These are not designed for chunky summer sunglasses, but they will fit average-sized glasses and sunnies, as I've tried to show.

The sides are hand stitched, and they are interlined with a soft wadding. A pretty, contrasting lining complements the outer fabric.

 They all have different buttons - most from my vintage collection. Fronts, picture 1:

  The backs are in the same fabrics. Backs picture 1:

  Just let me know which design you prefer when you order. Mention picture 1 or 2 and the particular design you like.

Give your glasses a treat!

Heart garlarnds in lush Cath Kidston fabrics

I've been busy making hearts and I have a selection of beautiful heart garlands for you.

Each garland has three hearts, one large and two smaller ones and they are perfect for fresh spring/summer decoration. 

This one uses Cath Kidston's beautiful floral and gingham stripe, with green gingham hearts and cute button decoration, together with twine:

I'm really pleased with them. Each garland has variations in buttons, or the use of twine or ribbon, and each is neatly backed with felt. 

This one uses Cath Kidston's green paisley and red gingham hearts topped with mother of pearl buttons...

I've tied ribbon around some, while I've used a cute mother of pearl decoration on another, and a fourth uses two lengths of lace. Click on the pictures to enlarge and see the detail.

Let me know if you have a preference on ordering. There is (from the top to bottom in the above picture):
1*Cath Kidston green paisley flanked by red gingham hearts
2**Cath Kidston pink paisley flanked by rosali check print (CK for Ikea) on double lace
3***Cath Kidston green floral and gingham, flanked by green gingham hearts on twine
4****Cath Kidston floral spray on peppermint flanked by rosali check print (CK for Ikea) and with mother of pearl decoration on deep pink ribbon.

Fabulous bunting, reversible and unusual. Perfect for a Knight's Castle!

Here is the perfect bunting for your special little knight or princess... shaped to match the heralidic shields on the fabric. The fabric is top quality from a leading British design company - very thick and very lush. You won't be disappointed. The fabric itself retails at £50 per metre.

There are six pennants on this bunting. A longer strip can be made to order, priced at £2 per pennant. This one is just over 7 foot, or 2 metres 20 cm. I've made it reversible, so if you want a change, or want to hang it in the middle of the room instead of against a wall... this is what you see on the other side:

Again, lush fabric from the same top quality fabric house. This really is very special and not a bunting you'll see anywhere else - at least, I haven't seen it...

Thank you again for all your orders and commissions. They are all appreciated, and I enjoy doing them. Apologies I haven't the time to update the shop with new goodies as often as I'd like. But I am still here!
