Colourful Corsages

I've never been very good with Etsy. Don't get me wrong... I love Etsy, as my frequent purchases will testify but I've never done very well with my own shop. Which is entirely my own fault as I seldom put anything in it and when I do I rarely update it.

So I thought it was time for a change...

And today there are six new fabric corsages.

Made with a beautiful mixture of vintage cotton feedsack, Liberty cottons, old lace and recycled buttons all lovingly made with machine and hand embroidery by my own fair hands.

Perfect for adding a splash of colour to your favourite jacket or sweater. Which is quite convenient...

As today is the first day of Emma's Splash of Colour week for February.

So why not treat yourself to a touch of Springtime for your lapel... available from my Etsy Shop.

  1. Hello again. I thought I'd bob by and say hellow. I can't believe it's a year since our blog swap.

    The corsages are lovely. The green one is my favourite.

    Sadly we were burgled last month and most my jewellery was taken. But at least I still have the pretty Pink Cat brooch you made me as it wasn't in my jewellery box. Thank heaven for small mercies! x

  4. Very lovely! Great minds think alike - oddly enough I'd set aside this week to get some of my own stuff into Etsy - I have a shop but there's never ever anything in it ...
