Stocking Up The Shop For Christmas


In between crafting gifts for family and friends, I have been up in my studio beavering away making items to stock up my Folksy shop for Christmas.

I love having an excuse to create pretty little accessories and stocking fillers and, because they are small items, I never get bored making them in a variety of different fabrics.

Do you want to see what I’ve made?

The wallet that I made as a birthday gift was so well received that I decided to add them to my range.


One of my favourite Liberty prints with plenty of room inside for notes, coins and cards.


The “Sew Retro” print by Makower was designed with a keen sewer in mind.

It has a coordinating dressmaking pattern print on the inside.

A selection of coin purses with contrasting zips and ribbon pulls make great stocking fillers.


Brightly coloured linings mean the interiors are pretty too:)

These travel card holders were based on the Oyster card wallets so are landscape in format. They will also fit any standard size credit card or ID card.

  7. They are all so beautiful!! I am getting a serious case of the wanties!!!! Oh my.. off to the shop I go. πŸ™‚ You are so talented… you amaze me. I have a kit here that came from the hook and needle kit club at Annies. There are two skeins of red and white yarn (wool) and a pattern booklet for two types of scarves that you can knit or crochet. I still have your address. Would you like it? It came free so no price to you. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Robin, I would love it, but you must let me send you a little surprise something in return. Can you send me your address again please?
