Photo Shoot. 

Quite a while ago now I had a little photo shoot with the lovely Diana of Fashion Loves Photos. Modeling for me I had Betty of Betty Blues Loungerie and Lady May Den-Voyage. It was a really fun day with lots of cake and tea and we ennded up shooting lots of hats, I was even persuaded to do a little modeling myself. 

 

 

 These first few shots are a few fun ones we shot.

B Millinery and Fashion loves photos the models!

A trip to Rockalilly Cuts 

I took a trip to Rockalilly cuts today as I was up in London for another reason and knew it would not take all day. I always love going to see the ladies, check out the amazing mug I got my tea in, and I had no idea they still did Gold bars!

 

 

Lucie Luella did my cut and as ever made it look amazing, I was really worried at one point that it was too short to set but she was right it was fine, it was just that having about 4 inches cutt of is a bit dramatic! I just hope I can get it set right myself.

Felt pillbox hat workshop 

I'm Working with Cascade putting on some workshops at the moment and we had our first felt pilllbox hat one last week, the aim is to teach people to make a hat like this.

We are using 2 different venues one in Brighton and one in Lewes, Sunday was at the Needlemakeers in Lewes. It's such a lovely venue and has so many interesting shops though it was probably good for me that the haberdashery is closed on a Sunday as it looks really good and I would have come home with all sorts!

The ladies that came along chose a colour and a shape and got to work blocking their hat, it was a really fun day and I loved seeing the hats come together.

The Ladies found the blocking quite a challenge but persevered and came out with come perfect shapes, it was then time to think about the trimmings while the hats dried.

Here is one of the hats almost finished, such a lovely shape and colour.

Christmas is coming! 

So Christmas is coming and Ill be at a couple of Brighton fairs over the next couple of weeks selling lovely handmade goods to bring a little sparkle and glamour into your lives.

Here are the event I'll be at, if your around please do pop by and see me and the other talented designer makers.

 

 

 

I'll be at this one on the Saturday but if you can only come on the Sunday you should still go as it promises to bee a good one!

 

I'll be doing some shopping at these events too as I've decided at least 50% of my Christmas gifts this year need to be hand made either by me or others.

Happy shopping.
