More Fascinators!

My new mini fascinators have been in Miss Katie Cupcake for a week and have been selling so well I`ve had to make more! Hooray!!

I`m loving the mix of gorgeous silks with vintage tartans.

Katie has definately helped with sales as she looks so great while modelling one!

I`m growing my hair a little longer again so I can wear it up and pop a little fascinator in at will!

A visit to Miss Katie Cupcake is definately advised just now as she has recently got lots more lovely stock in and her beautiful shop is absolutely crammed with gorgeous goodies. The fascinators are £24.

Loopy Brooches.

Hooray for vintage ties! This lovely lot is a selection from my new tie collection and I`m loving dipping into this goldmine of mini textiles. This week I decided to make some more loopy brooches.

I`ve been making versions of these brooches for a couple of years and they are always a favourite to make. I used to make them from vintage furnishing fabrics but now I enjoy using my new love- vintage ties!

Two beaded loops are finished off with vintage buttons. A few strategically placed sequins add a touch of sparkle. They are easy to wear and look great on the lapel of a jacket .

I`ll be topping up my stockists with more loopy brooches, remembering to put some away for my online shop, which I promise is coming soon…..!
