Sew Happy Lavender bag / Lavender sachet Collection

I've been making lavender sachets and lavender bags. Each lavender bag is stamped with a beautiful shabby chic design, and embellished with lace trim.

These are very romantic, and very pretty. You can hang in a wardrobe, to provide a lovely scent, or keep on display on a hook. They each have a jute loop.

Much of the lace I sourced in France. Each sachet contains a generous amount of lavender bought from my local organic lavender farm. The backs are a fine muslin showing off the lavender, but also ensuring the scent is released easily.

A gentle squeeze releases a wonderful lavender scent.

£5.50 within the UK - includes packing and postage. £7 to anywhere within the EU.

Personalised bunting - LOVE handmade letter bunting

I've created about 200 letters for personalised bunting orders, and love doing each one. So making a LOVE name bunting is something I really enjoy. I've used a selection of pretty Cath Kidston floral fabrics for this, and given it a blue theme.

Each letter is padded, set onto a template, and backed with felt - in this case a happy red felt.

The four fabrics complement each other beautifully, and this would look very pretty in any home. It would be a lovely Valentine's Day gift - and a gift that lasts.

I make each of my buntings to order and all vary in their use of fabrics - you can choose this one, which is ready now, or select your own fabrics.

My personalised bunting is £4 per letter, and I'm happy to make any word or phrase, in any combination of fabrics, or in one fabric - see my personalised buntings link on the right side bar to see other examples of my buntings.
LOVE is £16 plus £3 post and packing within the UK. Contact me at, or find me on Folksy:
I'm happy to post overseas - contact me for prices.

Ships fabric linen mix iPad cover

I'm making these to order, after requests for iPad cases suitable for men. This is a gorgeous linen/cotton mix fabric printed with a ship and boat design. I've padded and interfaced, so it's soft but holds its shape well.

It's really lovely. After polling the men around me, I decided on a simple button closure - using a waxed cotton cord to wrap around the button. As there are two, it is very secure. I've chosen a boat themed button for the lower button.

This is made to order so you can specify the choice of gingham lining - blue or brown or green or red. Up to you! Please allow 7 days after ordering. The pattern placement will vary, but all will look stunning. The back is another part of the design.

GB £16 plus £2.50 post and packing. Will come, like all my iPad covers, beautifully wrapped in tissue, and with a label stating it is a iPad cover from the Sew Happy shop. There is also a Sew Happy label in the cover itself. Contact me at

Handmade iPad cover, Cath Kidston print fabric

I have two more iPad covers available - I've sold quite a few iPad covers now, and I love making these, as each is different. These will suit an iPad 1 or 2, and are patched from two fabrics. The back and front are the same fabrics.

Cath Kidston antique rose on white is patched with a soft green gingham. The case closes with a metal popper.

I also have this one, which also closes with a metal popper:

It is patched from the same green gingham, but this time complemented with Cath Kidston's gorgeous pink paisley.

Both are beautiful cases. They are supplied with labels, making them perfect for a gift.

You can contact me on or buy them through my Folksy shop: link for the paisley one, and link for the white rose. They are £20 each, plus £2.50 pp. They are interlined for durability and softly padded as well, to help protect your iPad.

Many thanks for visiting my Sew Happy Shop.
