Hatpins and other things.....

I know I've said it before and I'll say it again Hatpins are HUGE!!...and boy oh boy are they sooooo easy to make!!

I made a handful for todays Bubbly Scrumptious post and also a twee holder for them so they are handy next time I want one!! Many thanks to The Vintage Vignette for her inspiration for a quickie hatpin holder...check out her tea cups whilst you are there!! Read my hatpin tutorial HERE


If my sister Linda sees this spelling mistake I'm dead...not because she is a teacher (which she's not)but because I ought to know my Channel from my Chanel...ones for boats and swimming in and the other is for wearing and admiring...oops do I feel dumb!

I had alot of fun making these little ATC's and the Maya Road tin with Julys Bubbly Funk Verbena kit...you could too it's still available and begging to be bought...you just can't leave these ladies sitting on the shelf!!

Love and stylish ladies

Thank you so much for the tutorial on how to make hat pins. They are so expensive in the store, but boy are you right, they are simple to make, you just need to find what you like to adorn it.
