Long time no post!

It’s been a while since I last had a chance to update my blog, I hope to do so more often! I am still stitching away, making personalised items for my Etsy customers. I have recently added Birthday crowns to my shop, which can be made in your choice of colours and shapes. There is also the option of a crown with changeable Velcro numbers for each birthday!

Spring is in the air here in the UK and my personalised play tents are proving popular! Now available with windows! Great for indoor and outdoor play.

This set of items were part of a custom order for a customer who looked through my past makes and chose some items she would like made in her favourite colours. It was great fun working with this lovely Japanese fabric and vintage flower charms.

I have a bunch of new designs on the sewing table for my shop which I should be able to share soon. ^_^

I’ve had lots of inquiries about my quilts and play mats and these are now available to order in my shop too. We can work together to create a one of a kind quilt, a perfect gift or keepsake.

Baby Reuben and little Zachary seem to love their play mats!

Lots of exciting projects are planned for Autumn so keep an eye on my facebook page for updates. Roll on Halloween!

Autumn projects

It’s November already… this year is flying past. Poppy is 10 months old now and she’s just so sweet & funny. We went to look at the Autumn colour garden at the Botanic Garden this week.

I’ve been stitching away and updating my Etsy shop as often as possible. Here are a few of the things I’ve been making this Autumn…

In September I made two applique cushions featuring Totoro. ♥ One for Poppy’s room and one for my shop… safe to say it’s new owner baby Dex was pleased with it! ^_^

pincushions

I made some more of my wristband pincushions, this time in Liberty of London fabric with vintage buttons. There’s one left in my shop, and I will be making more (Japanese silk ones too) for the winter craft fairs I’m trading at and hopefully for my Etsy shop too.

Now I’m busy preparing for the Christmas craft fairs I’m trading at this year, but I’ll make sure I update my shop in good time for the Christmas post deadlines too! I’m making all sorts of things (with some *gorgeous* fabrics!) so I’ll be sure to share some photos here and on my facebook page of my work in progress. Baby Poppy keeps me busy so I’ll be sewing every chance I get! Gambate to all those preparing for craft shows this season!

The Made-It Market Christmas Special November 2011

This weekend I took my big bag of Jezebelles Boutique goodies to The Made-it Market Christmas Special, and I exhibited alongside more than 60 fantastic artists, designers and makers. It was the biggest and best Made-It Market to date, filling two huge halls at the Cambridge Guildhall! There were also groups offering workshops for the first time. A great day was had by all!

Wrist band pin cushions made from Japanese fabrics ❤

Rockabilly head bands ^_^

Hair clips ❤

Purses

Hair flowers & brooches ❤

I shared a table with the fabulous Laura/PinkAppleJam and Selina/Bento Smile. I loved both their stalls!

There was so much temptation at the market with so many wonderful stalls, but I managed to resist most things… couldn’t resist purchasing from these two though. ^_^ I got a Bento Smile bunny plushie & PinkAppleJam felt carrot brooch! ❤

Bento Smile table!

Selina’s plushies & amigurumis are sooooo kawaiiiiii! ❤ ❤ They almost all sold, but I think she will be adding the ones she has left to the Bento Smile Etsy shop sometime soon!

Laura with her awesome PinkAppleJam stall! I made her dress from cute Pretty Cure fabric she bought back from Japan. ^_^

Laura was selling her fantastic comics & illustrations as well as kawaii handmade goodies!

I love her felt accessories! Laura will also be adding these to her PinkAppleJam Etsy shop soon!

The Cambridge Guildhall is a fantastic venue.

My loot from the day! Sad Bunneh & Angry Carrot! ^_^

Thanks so much to everyone who came to say hello, it was a great day! It’s always good to spend time with awesome creative friends. ^_^ I hope everyone likes the Christmas presents they get from people who shopped at my stall! For those of you who couldn’t make it, I’ll be adding some vintage style aprons, pin cushion wristbands & other accessories to my Jezebelles Boutique Etsy shop very very soon. ^_^ I think the three of us will be sharing a table again at the next Made-It Market in March too. ❤
