♦ ♣ ♥ ♠ CRIKEY I have been a little lazy blogging ♦ ♣ ♥ ♠

Shoe clips - the best seller, I have sold out. They will be back in September.

Actually I haven't been lazy... I have had the busiest 2 months ever. After completing a handful of orders for weddings and parties all over the world I signed up to have a stall at http://handmadewinchester.blogspot.com/ in Winchester Guildhall. Inbetween working, exams and general stressing about this month long trip to Borneo that has been looming for the past 18 months, I had to make some new and exciting pieces to take along to the fair. I have added a few pics below, however you will find more on my website. http://www.soobird.com/

I found a teacup on the carboot and decided to have a go at making a head piece with the cup and saucer as the centre piece. I was quite impressed with how well it went. Now I have tons of cups ready and waiting to be transformed into wearable works of art. Shame I smashed this one as I was packing away at the fair, it took me ages to cut the leaves!

The second teacup, not to be smashed. Made as one of the options for a customer who is having an 'Alice in Wonderland' wedding in August. I was asked to create 8 buttonholes, a pageboy brooch, a fascinator for the mother of the bride and two hair pieces for the bridesmaids. This was one of the teacup options for the youngest of the two bridesmaids. The one below was chosen, I was quite pleased because this one is my favourite yet and I have a few weddings to attend at the end of summer!
The revamped and improved Teacup, the orginal design has been tweaked giving more options. The cup and saucer are still hand moulded from felt and stitched into place however, the customer now has the optio of selecting a fabric to cover the teacup in. Spots, stripes, velvet or furry, the options and colour combinations are endless.
A bridal wedding comb that made it's way to the USA in early June ready for a Las Vegas wedding.
