sneak peeks (winter wear):

 Hey there friends, I've got more recent projects to show & tell here!
I'm still crafting like a Christmas elf on crack... and I'm real happy with the progress being made for the upcoming Focus Fair Indie Craft Show.

Today's 'sneak peeks' are of the winter wear I'll be selling there.
These are my new (limited) collection of cosy neck cuff cowls.

Featuring: Chocolate brown 'aztec' patterned cotton (lined with winter-sky grey fleece, or a pumpkin spice fleece).  Homemade branch buttons.  Leather strapping.  Faux fur trim.

 My Ben said it looks like something out of the 'Final Fantasy' game... I'm ok with that.
It's super ridiculously cosy, and it would fit snugly inside ones winter coat collar.

 This snowflake patterned fleece cuff also features the branch buttons and leather strapping.

 These cowls are extra high to burrow your face down into.

 As mentioned a while ago, I've made more of the popular wrist warmers too.
These three designs each come with branch button 'cuff-links' attached.
(I love wearing my leopard prints ones... super cosy!)

I even made a few 'wee' ones too, pretty popular with this gal who still wants her fingers free to grab things.. and her thumb to suck!

So there's another view of what will be stocking up my craft table.
I've only got a couple projects left here to finish and I'm good to go!
<insert happy dance>

Eager to see you lovely locals there

Creatively yours,
Mel ;o)

P.S - only a couple days left to enter that GIVEAWAY friends! ;o)
