The past few weeks have been some of the busiest times of my life, in craft terms. I've been spreading myself thin trying to create a range of items of different items of different sizes and I've also been photographing them and building the new website to house the listings. Website design is not something I've ever done before but thanks to some very useful software courtesy of my Dad and some fantastic friends who have experience in the area it's been a lot more painless than I would have imagined.
So what do I have to show for my many hours of devotion? Well firstly there's the Swiss Roll Collection. From the mini to the maximum cute, bag charms, mini roll purses, coin purses and handbags.
Next there's the Battenberg Collection. Battenberg shoulder bags, coin purses and bag charms.
Battenberg handbag. Actual slice of cake not for sale, I had to eat it all!
And for anyone looking for a savoury option there's also plenty of sushi to chose from in the Sushi Collection.
All these bags and accessories are now available to buy through the new Lucky Ladybird Shop which went live yesterday. The site's still new so if you experience any problems with it or notice any mistakes please get in touch and I'll get on it. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Being the Lucky Ladybird full time is my new job and, although it's been busy it's also been a lot of fun dreaming up new designs and honing my skills. Listening to the radio and putting the last few stitches into a handbag yesterday I took a moment to relish how much I enjoy sewing, and I hope some of that joy will show in the final products.
There will be more from me soon including a step-by-step 'how a bag is made' post, but in the mean time take a look around www.luckyladybirdcraft.co.uk and let me know what you think. Good luck, and enjoy your crafts,
