Well I'm behind with my Monthly Make again! Reason being too much work so can't complain really. I have been selling Union Jack buntings, mainly for the upcoming Royal Wedding but I think the theme will continue next year with the Olympics aswell. Everyone seems very excited about the Wedding though, what is everyone planning? Any street parties?!

New Year new range

Happy New Year everyone! Sorry it's a little late and I haven't posted since November, but I have been soooooo busy with some new items. New Year's resolution? Definitely to post more often!

Weather has been freezing and just right for being cosy indoors and doing some crafts. We had a lot of snow (well a lot for us!) and ice as I expect you all did, here is one picture of our front garden from the first lot of snow! Little one had so much fun making snowmen, as did most kids in the area so it was hilarious to see all the different shape snowmen everywhere!

So, to make you feel that Spring is on the way, here is my new range which is called English Roses and Tea Partys. There's a selection of buntings, crochet garland and cushions.

The crochet garland and cushions above were made for friends of Little one for Christmas presents. The caravan pillow was an idea I had after seeing a lot of freehand machine embroidery. It was featured on Kirstie's Homemade Home but is not as easy as it looks and you need to watch your fingers with the needle! But it's definitely worth a try. This is my kind of interpretation of it.

This is my favourite, the Roses Union Jack cushion. There is bunting to match which I can personalise.

Here is the Crochet Garland, which I wrapped around a card so it was easier to wrap up. It was loved very much by the recipient.

Hope you like all my new Goodies! I am having a sale in my Etsy shop next week, it's the Uk Silly Sale on Etsy. I have tagged all my sale items with the name Silly Sale. My items are either half price or 20% off. There are quite a lot of Uk Etsy sellers involved so you may find a great bargain!

My First Etsy Treasury!

Hi everyone, after three attempts (daughter and OH had both managed to delete it before I saved it) I have managed to create my first Etsy Treasury! I don't know why I didn't discover this tool before, I've had so much fun choosing different items to go with my theme. It is Red and White Christmas and I picked out things for gifts and decorations. I just love those colours together for Christmas they just seem so cheerful. My Christmas buntings are made in these colours in my Etsy Shop.
Might try another Treasury, it's quite addictive to do!

Autumn Brooches

Hi just a quick post as I thought you might like to see my little felt brooches that were inspired by the falling Autumn leaves.

I love working with felt, it's so easy to use, you don't have to worry about fraying edges and the colour choice is amazing! I bought mine from Pixie Rose on Etsy
After the Leaves I made these cute Butterfly Brooches

Has anyone else been inspired by the Autumn colours?

Well hello there, sorry for not posting for a while, I have been trying to come up with new things to make and it's been difficult to say the least! Why is it when you have time to create you just cannot think of all the ideas that you had when you were too busy to make them? What I have been working on is some designs for little pillows. I have so many pieces of Cath Kidston and Laura Ashley fabric left over from making bunting, I put them together to make these cushions. They are all appliqued and hand embroidered.
This one has 'Once Upon A Time There Was A Beautiful Princess' hand embroidered around it, I'm so pleased with how it has turned out, the muted colours and look of it.

Laura Ashley Esme fabric with Butterflies and Flowers.......

.......and just to remind of summer, a Cath Kidston Beach Hut cushion.

Hi I have been busy making Cupcake themed items, thought you might like to see them.
Here are some buntings

A small tote bag for Little one to carry her sketch book in

This is a doorhanger, hand embroidered with a name to personalise it. I've sold a few of these already so I'm quite pleased.

They all have 'Shh...!' on the back so it can be turned around for bedtime!

I also made a doorhanger for a boy in a beach hut shape.

On the girls' version I've also done ones with 'a Princess sleeps here' so they can just be sold without being made to order, but I cannot think what to put on the boy's version! Any ideas?!!!
