I really like this one totally my colours.
Snood in Shades of Pink & White. £20.00 + P&P
This beautifully crocheted snood is made in a lacy pattern, of my own devising, so it isn`t too weighty. Half is crocheted slightly looser so that it pulls up easily over the head, while the other half sits nicely around the neck and shoulders. This can also be used as a scarf in a variety of ways. The yarn is acrylic and ranges from a dark pink through to white with paler pinks in between. OOAK.
Is stretchable due to the pattern. Measurements are,as stretched.

This shoulder bag can also be used as a handbag - just adjust the strap to the length you want.
I picked this fabric because it looked so unusual. I was unsure what it would look like made up but I am pleased with the overall effect - hope you like it too.

The outside fabric is a heavy duty upholstery fabric, whilst inside I have used a very strong curtain lining is a deep shade of yellow/gold. The double internal pocket has been made using an orange cotton

Vintage Beadery CRAFTfest stall

Bringing you Vintage Beadery #CRAFTfest stall.
My personal favourite is the beautiful Flower Bracelet.
Daisy bracelet
Pretty delicate bracelet, with a beaded daisy flower created around a little rainbow moonstone cabochon. The petals are created with brick stitch needle weaving with tiny seed beads.
The bracelet itself is a narrow rope of circular beading with four green beads, one bead is a lighter more sparkly one which gives a subtle spiral effect around the rope.
The fastening is a wide loop of beads on the reverse of the dais,y with a little T bar on the end of the rope which slides through the loop to lock on the other side, a bit fiddly but manageable. The rope is flattened to a 2 bead strip at the end so it lays better under the daisy.
Costs £20.00
