I’ve just made another Pleated Zippered Pouch as a Mother’s Day gift. I wanted to sew something special to show off this beautiful antique flower brooch purchased from Susibelle. This lovely antique shop is based in the Vintage Look, in the beautiful town of Henley on Thames.
I sewed these cushions for end of term teacher gifts. They can be personalised with children’s special artwork – or anything else you would like added! The other cushion shown here was a gift and I added the photograph of the sheep to the heart.
Here are the latest creations at Dotty Owl! These Messenger Bags feature a fantastic drawing by 6 year old Ross. They are slightly larger than the Mini Messenger Bags I have made in the past – so are a perfect adult size.
I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted to Dotty Owl!
I have been so busy with orders that I haven’t had any spare time to share my latest creations! I have 24 items to add (yes, I counted them!)… so hopefully I’ll post some more before too long…
In the meantime, here is one of my favourites! It’s a twist on the Gilets that I have already been making. It’s reversible with easy velcro fastening as before – I can add any design on the back panel. Either in a heart shape as shown or a star, rectangle etc – there are lots of possibilities! This one shows a Unicorn embroidered design – as always, I can add a name too… I have some lovely royal blue with stars fabric too – so maybe I’ll try that next…
This week I’ve been working on something a little different, this special Vintage Rosette Keepsake for a friend. With Mother’s Day fast approaching I have decided to make another one for a FACEBOOK GIVEAWAY at Dotty Owl. These make lovely gifts for a mum, friend or maybe for a special Grandma from the grandchildren. Even for birthdays, weddings etc – there are so many possibilities!
They have a lockable safety pin on the reverse as well as hanging hooks (hanging ribbon provided). They look lovely wall mounted, pinned on a cushion, displayed on a noticeboard etc. You can even wear them – although they are larger than a usual badge size at 20cm across!
One lucky winner will receive a Vintage Rosette Keepsake similar to this (they all come up slightly different) with their own photograph and message (up to 3 words) added. TO BE IN WITH A CHANCE TO WIN, JUST LIKE THE LISTING & COMMENT BELOW. It would be great if you also wanted to tag it or share it.
CLOSING DATE IS SUNDAY 14TH FEBRUARY 2016 – AT MIDNIGHT when a winner will be picked at random. THE WINNER WILL NEED TO PROVIDE A UK ADDRESS FOR DELIVERY PLUS A PHOTOGRAPH (if wanted) AND UP TO 3 WORDS TO BE ADDED. I will need this information soon after the winner is announced to allow time to make up the order.
Happy to post anywhere in the UK, one entry per person. The winning Vintage Rosette Keepsake will be posted in good time for Mother’s Day and pictures of it will be added to Dotty Owl.
