Useful gifts

I made a couple of things for Chic Girl...
A stuffed button heart covered with vintage mother-of-pearl buttons from both of her Grandmothers  button boxes:

An oversized pencil case made with some of the Liberty fabric I was given on Mothers day
here is the bee fabric lining:
A large make -up bag, with a fish themed lining:

and finally, a passport cover:


  1. Oh that heart is gorgeous - the vintage buttons mean that it's even more special. Love the little square one.

  2. Thank you so much - yes the square ones are very precious as I only had three, so one has gone onto this heart, another on to my own 'button heart' and one I'm saving just in case Lanky Boy ('s wife*) ever wants a button heart!

    * No wife in sight as as yet - but maybe one day.....

  3. I bet she was pleased with her presents, they are wonderful. I love the fabric you used for the pencil case, etc...It looks much better than in the shop.

  4. I love this blog!! The flash up the top is awesome!! Cricket
