Folksy friday.... ♥ Not so lonely hearts ♥

♥ ♥ ♥
inspired by my shop name "lonely hearts" This week i have decided to do my folksy friday on hearts, these are some of my favourite non-lonely hearts ive found on folksy.
Ive been spoilt for choice looking for hearts, 564 pages of "heart" on folksy so no shortage or gorgeous hearts to choose from
so i have narrowed it down to 8 instead of 6 this week

Folksy friday - Hair Flair

Ive decided to do my folksy friday on hair accesories. I have been looking for the perfect hair clip for ages and ive narrowed it down to these six.
i will buy one of these after reading comments so let me know which one you like or you think would suit me as i really cannot decide.
i have dark red dyed hair, which ive started wearing to the side in a plait, and usually wear dark boring clothes so i could do with something to brighten me up a little!

I have just brought some new bits to experiment with and hopefully i will make some lovely new jewellery.
i want to make some hair slides and some super cute necklaces. These were from etsy, was hoping to find someone selling these in larger quantities in the uk but i havent been able to find any.
i also brought these little glass bottles and im not sure what i am going to do with them but they looked cute. Just hope i get a few sales on folksy soon to justify some of my spending!

commission Owl bag

This is my latest work, a custom owl bag. It is for one of my friends who wanted a bag making in purple. This has taken me alot longer than i'd hoped so i was so pleased to finish it today.
Mainly because my sewing machine has decided it no longer wants to work and has been breaking thread and missing stitches. On friday it nearly ended up in the rubbish but i stayed calm and took it all apart, cleaned it all then re greased and oiled it which has seemed to help a little. But it is still being very tempermental. I did manage to find a manual for it online today so im pleased about that as i've desperately been wanting to try free hand machine sewing, but i wasnt sure which setting to use. so hopefully after i get it working properly again i can give it a go. I also made a coffee pot warmer which was bit of an experiment, it isnt exactly how i imagined but will hopefully keep my coffee pot lovely and warm! looks lovely snug i think!
