It's been a busy couple of weeks at HbyH HQ and I missed last weeks Handmade Monday.
As if the day job isn't keeping me busy enough, I now have a Saturday job....working for Mr HbyH. My other half sells woodburning stoves for a living so, as you can imagine, now that Autumn is well and truly here things are a bit manic until Christmas. I'm still learning the ropes, but I quite enjoy my role as the Saturday girl!
The upside - we have a lovely, lovely wood burning stove and lots of wood easily available!
But, I have managed to finish a few things and have 4 custom orders waiting.
First I was asked to make a black velvet purse with a satin lining. Grrrrrr, I have discovered i hate working with velvet AND satin! But hopefully she'll be pleased with the result.
The same customer wanted a make-up bag which was slightly smaller than my usual ones. The thing I like about custom orders is that they encourage you to tweak your designs and inspire you with new ideas. So, rather than just making a slightly smaller one I also added a peekaboo pleat and a trigger snap strap so you can clip it to the inside of your handbag and always find it easily.
S'pose I'd better get on with the next order then......
Have a good week and please support other HM folk by dropping by their pages.
