Felted Wraps

These gorgeous hand felted wraps are the work of a talented lady named Sara who lives in Yorkshire and came to show me her collection a few weeks ago.
I am now stocking them in the shop and they are really causing a stir.
Made form wool and muslin cloth they have been likened to a piece of sculpture, which I feel is very true, they are a triangular shape and come with a detachable corsage which you pin to secure in a shape you desire.
They can be worn in a variety of ways and come in a kaleidoscope of colours.
I have sold a few already and look forward to seeing lots more of Sara's work. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

1940's Beret Glamour

I have entered a competition with this little hat and although there was no time for research and ordering of perfect materials I managed to select enough from the workroom to produce this hat. Heres Lucy of Lucy and the Caterpillar fame modeling my vintage inspired 1940's beret.
A hand rolled organza bow has been stitched in silver thread which is secured with a vintage diamante buckle,then the fine silver feather sweeps from behind. The corded lace motif I hand cut from a piece of bridal fabric and stiffened, then I have sewn a wire spine to be able to lift and twist it into position. Lastly some lighter navy organza ribbon was added to the spine.
Lined in navy silk and worn with a hat elastic it should be the type of hat a lady wears every day.! A big thank you to Shelly of Toast who yet again took these terrific photos.

Jewel coloured Pill Box Hat

A mixture of pinks,mustards and greens where put together to create a little jewel of a pill box.
Raw silk gave everything a beautiful glow, veiling added texture and bead work plus a quill added drama.
The clutch bag was made in matching silk and when put together with an Amanda Wakeley 1940's inspired dress it was a killer combination. It will be off to Ascot ladies day next week so lets hope the sun shines so we all get to see more gorgeous hats and accessories.
