Keep calm and buy pretty things

A few of the tote bags in my new Etsy shop, do you like them? I heat fixed my fave 60s vintage sewing patterns on them with special transfer sheets, which is actually very tricky. Many swear words were uttered, a few trials binned. Getting there now. will soon be customising them with faux naif badges made by a lovely artist in India, see below. Can you think of witty quotes related to sewing, charity shops and recycling? Do tell. The best one could get a surprise bag... x

Shop update!

Darlings, I have gone Mod crochet mad again and I have been collecting original vintage patterns from this era. Such cool dresses and tops to be made in thin wool for the winter coming, I have started on this easy one:
Lovely or what?!
And this tunic below in black

 Now the red dress below will have to be made soon too, isnt it gorgeous?
ahhh the tights and the shoes with square heels......

Reproductions for all you hooked crocheters are ready to download in my Etsy shop! Just click on my shop icon on the top left of this page

I have also gone amigurumi mad, although the 2 creatures I seem to make the most are the owl and the fox. I have been making crocheted animal brooches and pendants and I am slowly putting them on sale in my shop too.

I have been collecting leaves , acorns and conkers lately like a 3 year old.  The weather has been unusually warm recently and it looks like autumn is inspiring me to make my own little creatures.
