This is my secondary blog and is designed as an archive of my handmade creations, past and present. I also add dates of fairs I'm attending, where I offer for sale my handmade pieces and also carefully sourced vintage goods. I hope you will enjoy taking a look, Niki x

Stocking Fillers

Handmade greetings card - Vintage fabric mitten to wish you a Merry Christmas!

I've also made lots of lavender sachets. I used antique silk damasks, combined with some  special little lace samples that I bought a while ago at a flea market.

Some for my shop and some for the V&H Fair.

Bolster Cushion and Hearts.

A bolster cushion made from a rare French fabric. I trimmed the ends with a gathered antique braid.
Antique French ticking with a ribbon drawstring finishes it off. 

I've also been using up my scraps of lace to make lavender filled hearts. These will be coming with me to the Vintage & Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury on Dec. 1st. 
They'd look cute hanging on the Christmas tree! 

More makes will be coming fast and furious before the fair...

Vintage Baby

I made this collection of greetings cards today. Simply made by tying a pair of vintage baby booties to the front of the card using strong thread. They can easily be removed by the recipient. A card and gift in one! 

There was a little pair of mittens too!
Have a lovely weekend - Keep warm!

A Comfy Seat

Made this lovely and squishy boxed cushion today.
I used three different vintage fabrics.
It has a feather-filled pad. 
Tomorrow I shall be attending the V&H Vintage Jumble Sale. 
Hope to see you there. (My shop will be open as usual, as hubby will be  doing the honours for me :)
Have a lovely weekend,
