But First a little bit about Mad Bags:
Handmade bags for all occasions. Shopper totes, beach bags ,clutch bags, shoulder bags and hand bags. Commissions for bespoke bags happily undertaken I endeavour to design and make bags of the highest quality and hope you enjoy looking at them or even buying one! Happy Browsing
I love this one:
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
Three vintage buttons give the finishing touches to the bag.

An array of inspirational wire & chain mail jewellery.
I love most of these items here are a couple of fav's.
Chakras are the energy ecosystem of our bodies, a belief derived from ancient Hindu texts. There are seven chakra's defined by rainbow colours from the purple at the crown to red at the base. Good health & well being are associated with the balance of these chakras.
In her own words "Welcome to All Things Blankets & More, the home of handmade personalised cat beds, blankets, cushions & throws (I cater for humans also). All my items have been designed by me and are individually handmade (knitted items) or are a combination of hand and sewing machine made; many of which are able to be personalised at no extra cost."

Love this cat bed:
My personal favourite is the beautiful Flower Bracelet.
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.
