Spring Day

I finally have my new camera so it's time to test it out!

 It's a good thing today was such a wonderful spring day - a perfect opportunity for going down to the sea for some glorious sun, fresh sea air and camera testing....

Electric Blue Tie

I made a tie the other day.
My very first tie.
It was an order for a friend who specified the very electric blue of the fabric.

I thought that making a tie would be a walk in the park but it took me almost a whole day to finish with a lot of aligning, unpicking and re-stitching.
It was no small feat, I can tell you, so I'm quite proud of how well it turned out. (I even made a matching pocket square.)

This is the pattern I used, Simplicity 9962.
It's got all sorts of other men's accessories I'd like to try, especially the slippers which can be made for the whole family.

Fairytale Flower March Special Offer

These multi-coloured poppy boutonnieres are my very first monthly special offer for my Fairytale Flower etsy shop.

The thought behind this monthly offer is that each month I'll make a certain number of flowers that will be offered at a special price or be part of a certain promotional offer.

So, beginning with March, you can buy one of these poppy boutonnieres/brooches and get one free.

You can choose whichever flower you like as long as the one you want is still available but the second flower will be more randomly selected.

 There are 16 of these boutonnieres available -as seen in the group picture above-  so when they're gone, they're gone!

You can also choose what you want your poppy flower attached to. I've included stick pins, brooch backs and tie pins in the picture above but I see no reason why they couldn't be attached to bobby pins or hair clips as well.....
