    Here's a grey tshirt I've added pink flower shaped buttons to.

    I love the gradient shades of pink.

    This is such a quick and cheap way to cheer up last years tshirts and tops!

    I'm off to find some more clothes to upcycle....

    We are very excited to introduce our new collection of shawl pins to our shop.

    They can be used as shawl/scarf pins, kilt pins or brooches.

    We've started off with a small mix of designs to see which our customers

    prefer and will be adding more in the coming months.

    We're very excited to have been contacted by Knit Today magazine

    and have some of our handmade fabric buttons featured in issue 110 April 2015.

    All our fabric buttons are handmade to order

    and we are excited to see them being ordered to be added to wedding bouquets.

     

    Knit Today magazine has lots of patterns and tutorials

    and we particularly love the kit to make a little knitted bunny that came as a free gift!

    I'm very excited to have won this beauty on ebay this week!

    I've checked the serial number on the Singer website and it was made in 1917 and is still in working order.

    I'm lucky to have got it as I guess there was a flurry on buying them after they were featured on Great British Sewing Bee.

    I don't even want to keep it covered up with the wooden case, it's so lovely.
