All you need to do is ask

One of the lovely things about crafting is being able to create something for somebody that is specifically for them.  Whether it be recreating a previous creation in different colours, such as these hair clips I have made on request following the hairclips I had made for the Guild stall back in November.

I will add a listing to my shop in the new year for custom hair clips to your own colour specifications.

I have also been making ruffle scarves, following a night out and a few admirers of the scarf I had made myself.

So two ruffle scarves requested and made, and now the option is listed here, so people can order the style and colour of scarf for me to knit for them.

As with anything I make, if there is something you like the idea of, but would prefer different colours, a different theme, or even if I haven’t made it but you have an idea you would like me to create, all you have to do is ask.


Festive bunting

The last couple  of weeks has been busy with making festive bunting.  Some traditional designs with green and red, and some more contemporary with an lovely ice blue colour.

A post of Facebook generated a few more orders for bunting, to the point that I have now run out of the green poinsettia material.

These are the perfect size to hang at a mantle piece.

With various appliqued designs on the flags.


The “Snow” bunting has to be my favourite!  Something a little diifferent from the traditional, and could even be used all winter long, as it is not specific to Christmas.

How can you resist such a cheery little snowman?

I had so many plans for Christmas bunting, but will have to make sure I write them down to make for next year.  And start making bunting a bit earlier too.
