April Competition Time!

Hi everyone!

Time to start a little giveaway.

To celebrate the start of spring, I'll be giving away one set of PeggyCrafts prizes to someone who leaves me a nice comment on here. All you have to do to enter is...

1. Tell me which is your favourite peggycrafts product (you can find them all here)

2. Give me an idea for a new creature to be made into a lovable peggycrafts item. I have been working on new keyrings and brooches recently, and would love to have some more characters to add to the range. So, if you fancy a felt kitten, felty rainbow, or anything that could be cute, let me know about it!

The winner will receive a big parcel of goodies, possibly including:

Buttons, Plant Decoration and Mrs. Flower! - amongst other things, plus a prototype of your suggestion (if do-able!)

I'll close it on 4th May. You can enter several times if you have lots of ideas! Please join in wherever you are, worldwide postage is no problem :)

Good luck!

London, Tulips, Buttons, and Beefeaters

I had a lovely day in London at the weekend - just look at this pic of the spectacular tulips outside Buckingham Palace!

The weather was lovely, and I even caught a bit of a tan :)

I've made a few new buttons this evening...

I'm particularly fond of the lilac swirls :) - will put them on my website soon.

I've noticed an increase in sales of my Mrs. Flower kits - it must be this lovely spring weather we're having, inspiring everyone to make their own friendly Mrs. Flower!

Get your own kit here for just £3.50.

New fabric

Hi everyone

I have been busy working on a big bag order this last few days, so I haven't been creating much new stuff to speak of. So instead, I thought I'd share a picture of some new fabric I bought recently...So pretty!
It's from a shop in Chorlton in Manchester called Leon's, well worth a visit if you're local.
And a Mrs. Flower who I caught sitting on the fridge.

Easter Fun

Hi everyone

I've had a nice relaxing day today, after a very busy few weeks.

I met my mum for lunch in the pub which was lovely, and the very best thing about it was the chocolate fondue pudding :)))) Well - my mum's company was lovely too, but man that was good pudding ...

Meanwhile I've been working on a few orders for my new range of jewellery bags which you can find on my website and on etsy. I'm welcoming descriptions from jewellery sellers who are after a range of bags tailor-designed to their business or logo.

Tomorrow I am going to try and get a last minute hair appointment as my doo is growing out of control, and *hopefully* do some sewing on my patio!

Small Bags

Here's my new range of little bags.

They're perfect for holding items of jewellery, or other small precious things!
They are all available to buy individually or in sets of ten at my website.

Each bag measures roughly 3" square and is secured with pretty silver ribbon!

More Buttons

A few more buttons using new fabrics I've bought recently :)

And, some felt & flower button decorations! The possibilities are endless with these little cuties - card toppers, brooches, notebooks, gift tags...
