Cufflinks, finally ready!

The manufacture process has fully evolved now for my fabric button earrings and cufflinks! It took awhile but they are now finished to a high enough standard for me to start selling them. The method I have used ensures they are very strong and long lasting! I may start selling these soon on Folksy or I might have to wait till the Norwich Lanes fayre so I have enough stock for my stall! If you would like a pair though just leave a comment or email me and they will be reserved!

Boys like blue right?
Top cufflinks are 100% cotton, bottom left is a Liberty of London print cotton lawn and bottom right is a poly-cotton.

Yellow for the summer? The ones on the right are a personal favorite, definitely have a retro charm about them! Both 100% cotton

Retro red and green dots, both 100% cotton.

Cufflinks are silver plated and £8 a pair they will come in a personalised gift box or a handmade pouch to keep them cosy in the sock draw!
Earrings coming soon!

Polka dotted jewels

Agghhh! Ain't they purdy! I am so in love with these polka dot buttons! I already had some in lilac, red and black, but now I have a complete set! 14 colours all as beautiful as the next!

You have to click on the photo to see them in there true beauty, I've bundled them into complementery colours. My favorites are the aqua and wedgewood centre top, and the teal below. Mmmm I have such a craving for smarties now....yum! These lovelies will be made up into earrings in the next week or so to be sold at the fayre if not before on Folksy! But if you can't wait till then let me know what colour you would like and I will make them to order! I will try to photograph the earrings I have made in the last week tomorrow and get them on here!

Very exciting news!!

Sorry for the lack of posts recently I have been very busy indeed! A couple of months ago I tried to sign up to do a stall at the Norwich Lanes Fayre in July but they filled up really quickly and I was on the reserve list, however I received an email last week to say they have some stalls available now and would I still be interested!? erm...YES! So its been full steam ahead around here to try and get ready in time!

It promises to be a brilliant day! It will be on Sunday 11th July in the glorious Norwich Lanes (erm..Obviously) from 11am to 5pm!

Here is abit more information from the Norwich Lanes website to whet your appetite.....

'The fun family event celebrates the unique area that is Norwich Lanes and includes a chance to sample the area’s unique shopping diversity and arts culture. The event will take place throughout Norwich Lanes and include stalls selling vintage clothes, handmade crafts and foods along the length of St. Benedict’s Street.
St. Gregory's Green will play host to acoustic music, comedy, circus acts and poetry recitals throughout the day with ice-cream, food stalls and refreshments and cushions aplenty to enjoy the entertainment.
Venues in the immediate area including the Arts Centre, the Birdcage, St. Gregory’s Church, the Rumsey Wells, the Ten Bells and the Bicycle shop will have a co-ordinated schedule of entertainment such as dance, live music, barbeques, story-tellers and exhibitions.'

I will be sharing my stall with the two lovely ladies from 'Amity Vintage' so there is sure to be a great mix of handmade and vintage swag to be had! More info will be given as I get it, but put a note in your diary for Polka.Buttons first fayre!

I will get some photo's up soon of my new earrings and buttons that I have spent all week slaving over a hot soldering iron for! As well as a bit of sewing that I have managed to squeeze in!
