Just a quick post about some more owls I've recently been working on. Over the last couple of years they have become my best selling item, so I always like to have a couple available in both my Folksy and Etsy shops! I often have requests for other colour ways, so if you can't find what you are looking for, please contact me as I am always happy to accept custom orders :)

New birdies!

I've introduced a new item into my Folksy shop this week :) Staying with the bird theme I've listed a couple of cute birds which would make great little hanging decorations for any room! They feature softly padded birds with appliqued wing and belly and similar beading and ribbon tails as featured on my brooch designs. As a little extra detail I've attached a heart and flower underneath each. For more info please click on the photos below:

Fabulous brights!

Back to the brooch making this week! I'm loving all the bright colours around at the moment. The brighter and more clashing the better! I could sit for ages with my stash of felt playing around with colour combinations , it's sometimes surprising that I actually get anything made! But, I did eventually put needle to cloth and here are they resulting brooches, super bright and great accessories for the Summer.

These are now available in my Folksy shop, check them out here along with a selection of other not so bright brooches!

A pretty new product...

Just a quick update! Now available in my Folksy shop are these pretty pin cushions.

This is a new product so I just have a couple listed at the moment! They feature a large appliqued flower design in pretty cotton print fabrics complete with button centres. The flowers are mounted onto a circular felt base in coordinating colours and are filled with polyester stuffing. Please click on the photos below for more info :)

Custom order...

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to have one of my little bird brooches listed as a featured item on the Folksy homepage:)

The brooch did eventually sell but I also received a custom request from a lovely lady in New York who had spotted the brooch. She asked me to make up a little Babushka doll to her own design in the same colour and with the same little bird design as on the brooch. Here is the resulting doll, it's a little bit different to my usual requests for brooches and keyrings but I have to say I was rather pleased with it!

Shop update...

February already and my first blog of the year! The New Year has got off to a great start here at Buttercup Boutique, my Folksy shop has been ticking over nicely and I've had a couple of shop enquiries :) It was actually something I was wanting to look into this year so to have been approached has been great and has definitely come at the right time... more on this soon!
I've recently added a couple of new designs, including a new little owl brooch which seems to have got a good response.... see the oval brooch below :)

...some paisley and little flower brooches

...and for Valentines day some new little heart brooches similar to my larger hearts but a bit dinkier!
Well, that's me for now, I hope to be back tomorrow with a Folksy Friday.... just need to think of a theme now!
