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

Velvet & Lace

I made this little bag this week, using an antique French  silk damask in a softly faded pink.
I added a crochet lace piece from a vintage doily at the top of the bag.
And it is lined inside with a fabulous velvet from the 20's/30's.

This Week's Cushion!

I used a cheerful vintage hand embroidered antimacassar for this cushion (see the shaped bottom of it?!)
Combined it with some vintage floral fabrics...
And a zingy red linen for the reverse.
(Filled with a new feather pad.)
