Not a clue how to resize pictures on here, so i apologise if they seem a bit large.

I've spent 3 years making jewellery but have only recently realised that the competition is Etsy is fierce and many can make jewellery much better than i can, so i am now delving into the world of accessories. Hope you like.

A crocheted wallet. I would not recommend anyone sew large pieces of felt onto crocheted material, as it's quite flexible the material stretched as the felt stayed still and i ended up with very warped, wonky edges. If it had worked fully it would've been great, but i'm not a lucky kind of person. Still, i love the front design so couldn't throw it away, it's not that bad but i'm a bit of a perfectionist.

Yarn Stuffie Brooch. Sold within hours of listing, good times. Nothings sold since, bad times. This took an age to hand embroider.

A paper collage of a sewing machine sealed with mod podge (glue of the gods) and an acrylic varnish, finished with a swarovski crystal. DOES NOT PHOTOGRAPH WELL but looks very pretty in real life, i promise.

Feather stuffie brooch. I cut this feather out FREEHAND, bow down. Think it would look super cool pinned to a hat, but i don't wear hats, so that's down to someone else.

Hope you like Smiley I feel really proud of my new stuff, it's not just putting components together, i feel like i'm actually going back to my art roots (5 years at college should finally count for something).

Love the little crochet wallet!!  The painwas worth it--the spool with the pink thread is wonderful!

also love the sewing machine craftster pendant--what a cute idea to use a crystal for the "eye"
