Wrist cuff

I am busy making wrist cuffs because having experimented last winter I know that these little things can really keep you warm and stop draughts going up your sleeves.....

This one is make of quilted beige fabric that has a two tone flowerer pattern and a row of pretty lilac decorative fabric covered buttons. The cuff is further embellished with tiny sequin stars in silver and pink and a frivolous line of purple pompoms.

Patchwork boots

I have covered my army boots in patchwork style fabrics.........I am sooooooooo pleased they turned out this good :) All I need to do now is coat them with a waterproof varnish or laquer and I'm good to go.

Belt pouches

I made these two belt pouches from upcycled vintage indian fabric and added a few pretty decorations.

Each pouch is lined with navy blue patterned fabric.



The backs of the pouches

The pouches can hang from the belt or from the belt loops as two snap hooks are provided with each pouch

Funky brooches

Finally I got around to making something with the blank brooches I found.

Using felt spikes from a hair band and some sparkly Angelina fibers and some seed beads these are the results so far.......


Some of the brooches are 1 inch wide and some are 1.5 inches (2.5 cm /3.75cm)

Each spike differs in length but all are approx 4inches long (10cm)
