Latest Makery

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, May 29, 2013, In : Crafting 
I've been experimented with the sewing machine recently and made myself a case for my headphones and my ipod.  I wanted something that attaches to the inside of my bag so that I worry less about losing it so here's what I came up with.

The first bit is a simple ipod case with a button at the top to keep it secure.  The second bit is a zip up headphone case.  My headphones are ones that go round your ears so it meant it had to be quite big.  I've attached the two parts together and fitted a key...

Second Hand Sunday

Posted by Kat C on Sunday, May 26, 2013, In : Charity Shops 
I haven't done a second hand Sunday post for ages so I thought I'd try and restart doing some of these.  I'm a bit of a charity shop addict and love bargains, so here's my latest acquisitions :)

This first ones a bit daring of me as I don't normally wear white, especially on the bottom half, but I thought it was so pretty that it won me over.  It was just £4 and has beautiful inserts of broad anglais and a really full skirt. 


The second item I picked up with this stripy top.  I love stripes...

Rickmansworth Festival

Posted by Kat C on Sunday, May 19, 2013, In : Out & About 

We had a great day out yesterday at the Rickmansworth Festival.  There were tons of stalls selling everything from strange mechanical whisks (I kid you not), clothes, jewellery, yummy food, ceramics, leatherwork and loads more.  I picked up some cool bargains.  I got myself a cool, summer, maxi dress for £5 and some very pretty wide legged trousers also for £5.  I also got loads of jewellery \o/ as I was clearly running short ;)

It was a lovely day and the sun was out.  I had some very tasty...

Its been a busy few days due to my day job being a bit hectic.  I therefore meant to post these pics earlier but nevermind.

Here's what I made for Lisa for the Geeky Swap.

What I sent for the Geek Swap

It was a relatively small swap with us just needing to make our partners 3 items.  I chose to make a Professor Layton lavender pillow, a yoda keyring and a Sherlock Holmes gadget case.  I also sent some Thorntons toffees as I wasn't sure if they had them in the US.  I'm especially pleased with how the Sherlock Holmes pic ca...

Geek Swap - What I got

Posted by Kat C on Sunday, May 5, 2013, In : Crafting 
I forgot to do this sooner but heres the pics of what I got and sent for the Geek Swap.  There were bat hair clips, a Sherlock Holmes Necklace, a comet mug cosy, some Sherlock Holmes cards and bracelet made from resistors.  She also included some sweets, a notepad and a postcard from Michigan. 

I love the resistor bracelet so much.  Its probably my favourite item as its so unusual and delicate.  I'd never have thought of using electronic components in jewellery but it makes perfect sense.

The c...
