Christmas Fayre time again!

Hello Blogiverse!

Can you believe we are nearly in December already, and it’s Christmas Fayre season?

I’m going to be at Portesbery School’s Christmas Fayre next Sunday 2nd December from 12pm – 3pm. Do come along if you are local, it’s a lovely event and there are loads of fun activities for children, plus a superb raffle and tombola for big kids 😉

Here are some of my Christmassy creations! I really enjoyed making these hoops using upcycled pieces, including denim, ribbons, jute twine and buttons. The little Stop signs are recycled from my children’s long-abandoned train set!

And it wouldn’t be a ShabbyShe stall without my classic favourites – all made from repurposed juice pouches!

Find your sparkle!

I’ve been making a few blingy pieces recently which have proved very popular in my Etsy shop!

My Capri Sun lunchbags got a girly update with some hot pink handles, mauve zips and gorgeous sparkly glitter tape. You can’t beat a bit of spangly bling to cheer your day 🙂

Once I got hold of the glitter tape there was no stopping me, and I’ve made cosmetics pouches, pencil cases and phone sleeves with sparkly bits!

Or how about this latest phone case, made for a lucky young lady getting her first iPhone this birthday! Her mum asked if I could add some glittery touches and I was only too happy to oblige ❤

 

 

I find ribbon a very versatile medium too and love using it to add a decorative trim to lunch bags, pencil pouches and phone sleeves. This beautiful magenta ribbon has a lovely sheen with reflects light so nicely and pretties up this make up bag.

I hope you’re all having a sparkle-tastic week too! x

 

Upcycled Phone Cases from Capri Suns

Some of my flip phone cases, made from foil juice pouches!

These are great fun to make if rather fiddly – the tricky part is shaping the hole for the camera on the back of the case. I took my inspiration from a phone case I bought online which started to fall to pieces after less than a year. I loved the design but surely they could be made to last longer, with more robust materials?

I had already made my phone pouches using Capri Sun packs and foil pouches from other juice drinks, but this required precision, the right type of gel phone cases to hold the device in place, and card to give it structure – in this case, a recycled cereal box (you know me, I love to reuse!)

Still one of my all time favourites!

I love the end result – I have one for my iPhone 5 and have made them for iPhone 7, 6, 4G, Nexus and even a Huawei phone.
