finally put my latest diana mini case on my etsy shop. hammering studs on to the cases is not one of my favourite things to do so i did put it off for a little while. but it's done now.
recycled blue checked cotton with hand embroidered squares with coloured embroidery silks. i wanted to do some hand stitch on the case but not over-whelm it. the case is lined with hot pink felt and the stud fasteners are bright orange. the seams are sewn with a pale pink blanket stitch. there are more photos on my etsy shop
i have also listed a small brooch. it's a printed illustration i have done of a churpy owl. he is bright, bold and quirky. perfect to be worn in all seasons.
i should really get ready for work. but at least i've got some new photos to work from that i can take with me. i'm really feeling the urge to do an embroidery. not done a proper illustrative embroidery for ages. hopefully my doodles will come out okays.
