Zippered pouches

What have I been up to lately? Studying, and sewing! More study than sewing, as I’m at the complicated end of my design course now, and it’s eating up all my time. Never one to shy away from distraction and procrastination though, I’ve whipped up some new zippered pouches. I decided to make some for sale after making one for myself and realising how handy it is to contain all those small bits and pieces that usually go astray.

They’re made from 100% cotton & canvas, with a nice shiny metal zipper and a leather zip-pull. The fabric choice is inspired by the colours I soaked up on a couple of little holidays to alpine regions recently (before snow arrived to cover it all up) – greens, blues, browns and greys, I’m loving these muted tones at the moment. I plan to dig into my fabric stash and bring back some more lively prints soon…more to come!



soapy parcels

Sweet scented soapy parcels (aka “the craft I’m doing when I’m not doing any craft”) have now been added to my little store. They’ve filled the house with such a beautiful fragrance, I’m not sure I want them to sell!

Christmas Handmade

Recently I was pleasantly surprised to be featured on the ‘Handpicked by Made It’ home pages for both ‘Pastel Pretties’ and ‘Citrus Crush’. It seems my little pincushions have proved popular of late!

If you haven’t yet visited Made It, I encourage you to have a browse through the wonderful variety of handmade goodies on offer. With Christmas just a blink away, there are gift ideas aplenty. Here are a few great gift ideas I’ve come across in my travels, and there is so much more to choose from!
