50% off everything today!

Yesterday was the FIFTEEN YEAR anniversary of my very first sale on Etsy. I had no idea what an amazing creative adventure I was setting out on when I took that first tiny step - but I do remember how exciting it was.

To celebrate, I'm having a very special sale in my Etsy shop: 50% off absolutely everything, for 48 hours only (ends midnight tonight, 17th Jan 2022). It was meant to just be for 24 hours but it turns out that I still don't have a full grasp on how all of Etsy's features work, haha.

Shipping for physical items is UK only at the moment (sorry!), but no matter where you are in the world you'll be able to snap up some of my digital patterns at half price. Hurrah!

Felt Flower Brooch Craft Kits for Hawthorn Handmade

In case you missed my exciting news last week: I've designed some felt sewing kits for Hawthorn Handmade, who sell the loveliest beginner-friendly craft kits.

I'm so delighted to have been asked to work on these, and super happy with how they've turned out. 

Last week I shared lots of photos of the collection of wildlife brooches (a hare, a deer, a wren, a hedgehog, a fox, and a tawny owl), and today I'm going to show you some snaps of the second collection: flower brooches! 

Each of the embroidered floral brooches is named after a famous woman gardener or botanist, isn't that great? You can find the whole range of brooch kits here (with worldwide shipping, hurrah!) and find out about the women each flower brooch is named after, too.

I love the choice of names, and I loooove the photos Hawthorn Handmade have taken of the finished brooches. 

There's Marianne...

 

... Gertrude...


... Beatrix...

 

... Penelope...

 

... Margery...


... and Vita!


Which one's your fave? I absolutely cannot decide on mine.
