Lavender for Dad

My Dad was very interested in my Lavender bags I made the other day and wanted some for his new home, however I think the ones I made are a bit too girly for my Dad, So I made these ones especially for him and they even have his initials (WJM) embroidered on the front of Each one. He loves the smell of Lavender so I have packed as much in these as possible, I hope they make his house smell really lovely. x

Home Sweet Home

I recently made this hand embroidered cushion as a house warming present for my Dad, who has just moved into a lovely little place in South Shields. Complete with Home Sweet Home slogan, White Picket Fence and Strawberry button fastening it is the perfect gift for a house warming. I hope that this cushion will now take pride of place in his new home and go with him where ever he moves. Good Luck in your New House Dad xxx

Dusky Treasures Leather Clutch

I have had a busy weekend this weekend helping my friend Ami make sparkly dresses for her A-Stars dance show in a couple of weeks & training for my 10k Run that I will doing for Afghan Heroes next Sunday. So I'm quite pleased that in between running and sewing dresses, I managed to finish this gold, silver & blues leather clutch bag, complete with blues and pinks floral silk lining and fastened with silver magnetic poppers. I have named it "Dusky Treasures" and hopefully whoever buys it will treasure it forever. xx

Gift for Helen

It was my friend Helen's Birthday at the weekend and to keep up with tradition of course I made her one of my handmade and one of a kind bracelets. I hope she will treasure it forever. xxx

I recently purchased this Softies Book, which tells you how to make all sorts of cool Softie Characters out of felt. Here are my first two, Dorian the Dog and Vintage Dress on hanger. I think they look really cute, I can't wait to make some more. x

Girly Embroidered Lavender Bags

I made these pretty embroidered lavender bags recently with lots of Girly motifs embroidered on the front and a coloured ribbon perfect for hanging on a door handle on in your Wardrobe, you could even put one in your underwear drawer. These are all going to be for sale on my Christmas fair stall, an Ideal stocking filler. x

Christmas is coming!

I'm getting prepared for Christmas early this year... As I have a couple of Christmas Fairs coming up where I will have my very first Emma Elizabeth Stalls :) I thought I would try making my own Christmas decorations. I have made these salt dough decorations and these embroidered Reindeer decorations so far and I am also thinking about making some felt decorations. However at one of the Christmas fairs I may not be able to sell Christmas items and will have to keep to my jewellery and homewares, But that just means I get to keep these lovely decorations for my own tree...Looks like we will be having a handmade Christmas!

My first confirmed Christmas Fair stall will be at Chapel Street Nursery, Luton. On 11th December 10am - 12pm.... Please come and have a browse. xxx
