Craft, stitchin' and sustainable living

Thursday, April 29, 2010


I've been fortunate enough lately to have some wonderful handmade things blow in my direction.

Clare bought these wonderful crocheted glass cozies for me as a housewarming present. They were made by one of her friend's mother who is of Mennonite faith and makes a lot of things by hand.

The hat shop in Newtown (I don't know if it actually has a name - it has no signage*) was having a 'Hat Tat' sale last weekend, and because this felted hat wasn't finished with edging it was only $15! I bought some vintage ribbon in two different colours to go around it. Might make a felt rose too.

And... I have placed an order for these totally awesome vegan eco-chic ballet flats from TheGeneration. I can't wait for them to arrive. I am desperately in need of some flat shoes that go with just about anything, after my $13 job interview shoes from years ago finally fell apart. RIP.

*but if you're looking for it, it's beside Oscillate Wildly on Australia Street.

  2. Wow those ballet flats look extra comfy!

  3. I've just put an order in for some of these shoes too, but the ones with the straps. Have yours arrived? I'm hoping they're super comfy and last a while.

  4. Hi there

    Mine haven't arrived yet, I was told it would take 3-4 weeks to arrive from Canada - but that seems like a long time to me. Nevertheless, I'm sure it will be worth the wait! Will let you know when I get them.
