Hand crochet/stitched hairbands - a pretty selection

Having daughters in the house is an excuse to have lots of pretty things - and hairbands are a must. I've made them lots over the years, but have never put them up on my blogshop. But these look so full of colour and the joys of spring, I couldn't resist.

They are on beautiful complementary cotton lace, stitched with elastic at the back. I've crocheted some, and stitched others.

The yoyo is Cath Kidston's gorgeous bubble rose fabric, which I've teamed with a Rowan cotton rose pink crochet flower - I do all the crochet - and a vintage button, so rather unique this one:

I've crocheted a rose, which I've popped on a brooch pin, so this doubles up - you can remove it to use just the lace as a hairband, and use the rose as a brooch, for a change.

These are £7.50 each, plus £1 post/packing - will come prettily wrapped in tissue. All unique, and all eyecatching. Email me at thesewhappyshop@yahoo.co.uk with any questions. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Tapestry cushions with bobble trim

I've collected tapestries for a long time, and have decided to make some of them into cushions, and I'm thrilled with the results (I'm a tapestry lover anyway, so I guess I would be). These really add a splash of colour to a chair.

There are a variety of sizes - email me if you are interested (thesewhappyshop@yahoo.co.uk). I've also listed them in my Folksy shop. And please pop by if you like my makes to like me on Facebook, where I'm  TheSewHappyShop. I'm trying to update quite frequently on Facebook, and would love to see you over there.

The two small ones are cute together, while flowers are always a popular choice:

Do contact me if you are interested in any of these.

Price: GB £10 each of the smaller cushions - an absolute bargain as these are hand stitched tapestries - plus £2.00 post and packing within the U.K. The larger floral spray cushion shown in the picture above is £15 plus £2.00 post and packing.
