Handmade Made Monday No. 94

Due to a family bereavement in the early hours of Saturday morning unable to attend The Royal School fair, hope it went well for all the stallholders

The final 2 teddy pocket bags this time in yellow and lilac, sorry I know getting a bit déjà vu now but these are the last two, honest.

Hair clips covers, these were so quick to do.

The nightlight bird cage was a boot sale find two for £1.00, came across them in my workroom and thought had to use and filled with hair slides what better use.

I mentioned an advertorial the other week, well the magazine is now out, they selected the red waistcoat to feature and have noticed hits on my site have gone up sky high. Click on the magazine front and scroll through to page 18/19 if you want a peek.

They approached me out of the blue after finding my site on Best of British, just goes to show these free directories are worth putting the effort into.
