I have been updating my MADEBYHANDONLINE store today.   I have these very lacey, textured heart shaped brooches and a couple of clutches in my shop ... the link should take you there, if you fancy a look.
Here's a little tin, just finished, which is currently over in ETSYLAND
 I hope you have had or having a perfect day.
Hens Teeth will be here.
Looking forward to this fabulous event ... not long to go.

a quick post to show you the latest makes.
After a few weeks of pretty much making nothing, I am back into the swing of making again.
I have a couple of 'Hip Pocket Bags' to show you. I just wanted to explain that the Bows, that embellish the bags, are featured in the current issue of Stampington & Company 'Sew Somerset'. I received the Bow brooches back from USA the other day and decided to rework them a little, changing them from brooches to hip bag embellishments.
The bags are made of hand loomed French linen (this one has an embroidered monogram) with a lining of original Feedsack cotton. The straps are very old curtain header tape (just the loveliest texture). So the fabrics are very special and when they are gone they are gone. If you would like more details, please pop over to my Etsyland.

I made a hip bag this week, from old table cloth linen.
Embellished with 'Pamela Prim' and her adored Black Cat.
Free machine embroidered.
Pamela may not be to everyone's taste, but she has a good heart and always wears a smile.
