Retro Apron

8 Jul

I love retro style aprons, especially cute skirt aprons!

This skirt apron is made with two different floral fabrics, a pleated bottom, a zigzag stitch detail and a cute little pocket.

This, like all my sewing items is available to buy! It is €30 plus package and posting.

You may choose the colour of the fabric but any extra modifications are an extra €5 per modification.

Vintage with a Twist

3 Jul

I love vintage handbags! This is one I made but I used modern style fabrics using a black and white polka dot and a deep red. I then finished it off with cute stripped and polka dot buttons. This little handbag is perfect as an evening bag, it is the perfect size for your phone, purse and still has enough space for some essential make up. The handle sits comfortably on your wrist so you hands are free.


The handle is 17cm
The bag is 18cm in height
and at its widest part 22cm

The inside of the back is fully lined with a black and white polka dot fabric.

Change of colour is free but any extra modifications are 5 euro per modification. Just email me on chatcountrychick@gmail.com to arrange details.

Autumn Doll

1 Jul

Autumn is my favourite time of year; I just love it, the smell, falling leaves and the mild but slightly chilly weather. I know it is still summer but I am excited for when autumn makes its appearance in August.  While roaming around my craft room I came across this doll. I have made a lot of dolls over the years but this one is by far my favourite.

My doll inspire by a John Keats poem

I never really named her but she is inspired by John Keat’s poem Autumn. Her fabric skin is lightly dyed using tea bags and decorated with beads and simple twig like embroidery. Her hair is made from wool which I think looks like beautiful blonde locks. I kept her face simple and used stitching of different reds and golds to give her a masquerade mask. I gave her some simple wire jewellery around her neck and her dress is made from fabric which remind me of rich red autumn leaves.

This doll can be purchased!

The exact same doll can be purchased or I can change  the colour of her hair, dress and skin. Any extra details will be at an extra charge of €5.00 per modification.

My dolls are made from the finest quality materials. The doll is 42 cms in length and the stuffing is anti-allergic filling. My sewing room is also in a non-smoking and pet free home.

It will take about 2 weeks to create your doll from the moment you purchase.

Once you buy an autumn doll, remember to send me an e-mail along with any details:

  • Hair colour
  • The colour of the dress fabric and mask
  • Skin colour
  • And also if you have any particular requests

Once we arrange all the details, I will start creating your doll. I will send you photos of the doll prior to shipping.
