Kate Spade Inspired Cacti Sliders

Recently I saw the most gorgeous gold cacti sliders from Kate Spade. However I am not currently able to spend £100 on sandals!...I say currently, maybe one day....although you get so much more of a buzz out of creating your own version. So thats what I did. I wanted them, I couldn't afford to spend 100 golden nuggets so I made my own. Here's how...
I bought some gold sliders from New Look for £15 and I then got into my shed and drew, stitched and made three lovely cacti.

I then decided how I wanted them on the sliders and used a hot glue gun to attach them.

I LOVE them! Wish I could do a lovely foot shot, but at 39 weeks pregnant my swollen trotters would not look pretty squeezed into these. BUT these will be such a lovely treat post baby when my feet are normal size again! I've been told they do go back to normal size quite quickly! Can't wait to paint my toe nails and wear these pretty DIY sandals.

DIY Nursery footstool

The baby room is almost complete and the only thing I needed was a footstool. It's no secret a love a carboot and most of the time I go I have a little list in my head of things to look out for. Even though I rarely complete this little list and just end up buying random bits and bobs. However last Sunday I spotted a cute little footstool which was only £1.

I gave it a good clean and used the previous cover as pattern and whipped up a new cover with leftover curtain fabric from the nursery. It was super easy to do and only took tops an hour.

The nursery is now completely complete.....I think. I love it xxx

Fabric fruity earrings and sparkly moons and stars x

Been enjoying getting creative lately and updating my Etsy shop. I have also acquired a little addiction to sparkly fabric. These are some of my latest makes from my little shed.

Fruity earrings are always fashionable...aren't they?
Who can resist a cactus badge?

Finally I loved making these super cute sleeping moon and star earrings.

Back soon
Love Becky x

Wedding planning


Haven't posted for so long as I always felt like I was writing to no one and it felt a little silly. Well I actually was writing to no-one! Ha! But I've just been looking back through my blog posts and it's lovely for me to I'm going to give it another go.

I'm so excited to be getting married in August this year and I've absolutely loved creating, making and dreaming up all different ideas. I just want to make it all. So I thought I'd share a few pictures of what I've been making.

This is my third attempt at making a wedding hair band but I was worth it. I love it! I may do a tutorial for this one...

Next I've been busy making pressies. I love this rustic simple packaging and it was super easy to do.

I also bought some pretty flowers to make my bouquet. 

Finally flower girl accessories. Simple to make but oh so pretty.

Today it's favours!

Anthropologie inspired mouse in a match box house

I spent an afternoon creating this super cute mouse in a teeny match box house - time well spent. I was inspired by this gorgeous mouse from anthropologie.

So cute, so I thought I'd create my own version with bits and bobs I found in my shed.
Supplies needed - card to create a stencil, white fabric, white and pink felt, pink ribbon, white and black cotton, pink and white embroidery thread and sewing needles.
I created a stencil from card. Cut out the main body of the mouse from the white fabric, then embroidered on a nose, eyes and mouth - too cute! I then created arms, legs and ears from the felt. I used white embroidery thread to embellish these. I also cut some pink ribbon for a tail.
I put the main body parts right sides together leaving space at the bottom to turn out. Then stuffed and stitched closed. I then stitched on my ears, arms, legs and tail. She looked a little indecent - so I made a pretty skirt and of course a humble abode.
I used fabric scraps to create a mattress, pillow and blanket. The house is a slightly larger match box covered in pretty paper and silver glitter down the sides.

This is going to be a pressie for my niece, I hope she loves her as much as I do.

Floral necklaces

I have had the idea for these for a while and finally got around to making one an hour before I was going to the cinema. I already had the flowers cut and ready to stitch. I'm seriously addicted to breaking bad at the moment, so I am cutting flowers as I'm watching! 
Then I add pretty detailed stitching in my little sewing shed. I sometimes love the back of my work as much as the front.
I absolutely love these necklaces! I'm so excited how well they have turned out and plan to make lots more for this lovely fair in March.
I'll also be making more this afternoon to put into my etsy shop.
Have a lovely day.
