Rainy Day…

It’s a dreary rainy day and I have a poorly bub so managed to make a few bits at lunch time…

Mr Penguin punky brooch

Pretty pussy necklace

Penguin keyring I made for Stupot to say thanks for all his help with setting up my blog

These are hand drawn ‘shrinkies’ (talked about shrinkles in an earlier post) and i’m quite fascinated by how cool they are!! When the plastic shrinks it makes your drawing look ace and the colours really intense.

My Etsy shop will be ready by the end of the month and these will be available then…unless you need something before…message me/ Facebook me!! More than happy to take commissions!


Shrinky Dinky!

Remember when you were a kid and you used to be able to shrink old packets of crisps in the oven (in the 80’s/90’s when everything was plastic not foil!) and make little mini things, well this stuff is like that. You simply draw on the rough side with permanent pen and pencils and then […]

Fabric Rehab

As you probably know by now I have a slight addiction in the form of fabric, so a visit to the Stitch and Creative crafts show a couple of weeks ago with Mum was like torture…but I did treat myself to a few little fat quarters and a stack of fabric to make a quilt […]

Wedding Belles…

I’m very excited about tomorrow, two very dear friends are getting married, my husband is best man and my daughter is going to be a flower girl! The time has just flown by since they announced their engagement and I cannot believe the big day is tomorrow! …Thought I’d better get myself a new frock […]

Look Look Look!!!

Look what arrived in the post today! Got this made by the English Stamp Company and it will be so useful for packaging up my goods to post to lovely customers. I also ordered fabric ink so I can use this beauty to stamp on garments! What do you think?!

Frock me

The house of Real Green Dress had its debut appearance at ‘Frock me’ last Sunday held at Kensington Town Hall. Bit of a baptism of fire as first time attendees at one of these events but overall a good experience. We met some fantastic fellow vintage hoarders and had a good nosey around at other […]

What I’m lusting after this month, so far!!

M&S Italian wool Bracelet sleeve tweedy type coat – it’s from the Autograph collection and it’s just so grown up and sophisticated! …but £129 🙁 Peter pan embellished collar dress…soooooo pretty! Topshop midnight velvet playsuit (also comes in burgundy) it would look really cool with a pair of flocked tights. ASOS skater skirt in Folk […]

‘What I wore’ Blogs…

Feeling in a bit of a style rut recently, I have managed to find a new fashion lease of life through looking at other peoples ‘what I wore today’ blogs. Its so refreshing to look at what real girls are wearing and even more inspirational than the pages of my favourite glossy mags! I have […]

Hi, my name’s Debbie and I’m addicted to fabric…

I have drawers/ boxes full of the stuff and it needs to start earning its keep so I’m opening a new etsy shop soon and I’ll be blogging about my current projects here! I have a massive list of stuff I want to make including; Clothes/ Homewear/ accessories and I’m also learning some new crafts […]

My first blog post…

Hello fellow crafters and fashionistas! I decided to start this blog as a means of diarising my craft activities and things that I find inspiring. I’ve been looking at a tonne of blogs over the last couple of months and they have really motivated me and got the creative juices going! There are so many […]
