These are a new venture, wrap bracelets, all stitched on my machine then adding Swarovski crystals to the centres of the flowers. Delicate and oh so pretty. The idea is they are wrapped around the wrist and fastened with a sterling silver clasp and ring. Perfect for a wedding, summer day or an evening out.
Continuing on with the wedding theme these Flower Girl Petal bags are an alternative to the flower basket and become a keepsake of a special day.
Finishing off Christmas gifts atm and have even started thinking of Christmas 2015, I must be mad I hear you say! well maybe but I get an idea and have to run with it.
Have a good week and hope we get an Indian summer as this is just too cold for mid August.

Okay have gone bunting mad, getting ready for a wedding fair in November, I know still plenty of time but is there? I find the days just whizz past and then a mad rush to get everything done.
I love spots, not sure why maybe because a vintage feel. This fabric I have used before, in fact quite addicted to it, but find it neutral in a funny way, not over patterned and also looks elegant.
Mr & Mrs bunting in a variety of colourways, with delicate pink hearts and the letters done in white with a hint of glitter.
However, realised that the Maid of Honour was spelt Honor, so no good for this side of the pond. Will redo today hopefully, that is if I don't get distracted by other ideas. This is one reason why I make OOAK (One of a Kind) that way my butterfly brain can be satisfied, production line working is not for me.
Should have been working on a 'Happy Christmas' bunting banner but the fabric did not arrive when it should (sorry Kim). However, did not want to waste time and had to get these banners done anyway. Hold that thought fabric now arrived all done and ready to post off:
