Happiness for your Hair…..

I made a few of these cute little hair combs as custom orders & thought I’d share the happiness  – the flowers were crochet then felted & hand dyed – a bit of fun….

Something a bit different from me…

Like most crafters, I love craft magazines. My bookshelf is overflowing with an array of different issues, everything from: crochet, knitting, beading, paper, you name it… I’ll have a mag about it somewhere. They are such a wealth of information for what’s happening in the craft world, new ideas & where suppliers hideout & can be found. However, & only due to lack of time, I don’t usually contribute to them.

So, when I was asked if I could come up with some ideas to revamp clothes for little girls for the new Embellish Magazine, I was at quite a loss as to what to do – after all, it’s rather ‘left field’ for me…. nevertheless, always up for a challenge, I came up with these simple patterns that I feel sure will prolong the life of that favourite skirt/dress for the little miss in your life.

Embellish is published by ArtWear Publications & also the home of Yarn & Felt & Magazines. If you haven’t done so already, check out these great magazines, you’ll be pleasantly surprised… enjoy

One for the cowboy/girls & one for the Pink Princess

2 new additions to the shop – the colours in the glasses case simply remind me of cowboys – hence Rodeo & the cushion cover is just over-the-top for those Pink Princesses out there…..
