New Brooches

I've spent time today creating some new brooches. Some have embroidered words and buttons. There are also pins so that you can attach your own small things and memories. All have a vintage buckle.

January Ideas

As I was walking along the lane today, I began thinking about what I could do with the Ladybird Book covers that are left after I've used the pages to make cards. By the time I'd got home, I'd seen snowdrops out, the first two daffodils of the year and I had a plan! I neatened the internal spine by trimming and covering it and then added a notebook. So a new product was created today. Walking along the lane, even when it's cold and blustery, is good for thinking things through! I was also thinking about the fact that, when people buy things from Betty's Bubble, the purchase usually helps a charity as I buy so many things from charity shops or sales in aid of a local cause. I source all the vintage books I use that way and a great deal of fabric and vintage blankets and lace. I'm really pleased that the enjoyment of my creations also helps others.

New Year - New Creations!

I've designed some new wrist warmers. They're made in beautifully soft fleece fabric with vintage sari ribbons or vintage lace. There are also matching neck ties (until I think of a better name! - any suggestions?!) for a limited number of pairs, made with sari ribbon and vintage silk scarves. These can be tied, draped, wrapped, pinned or worn however you choose around your neck or wrist, on a hat or wherever you like. Hope you enjoy them. I'm looking forward to being at the Crocadon Brocantes and Producer fairs ithis year.
