Handmade Handbag/Purse Faux Leather Tassel and dangle Charm

 Handmade Handbag/Purse Faux Leather Tassel and Dangle Charm Whatabout ye Folks, it's Lee here.  This is just a real quick wee post with probably more photos than is absolutely necessary, lol.  When I made our wee Mamma, the Passion Flower Tote  from Blue Calla Patterns on YouTube , I wanted to make a faux leather tassel and bag charm to spruce it up a wee bit.  Not that it needed it, but I think the bag looks cute with them on either side.   To make the tassel, I just used some of the left over faux leather fabric that I had from making the bag.   The dangle charm was simply made using a piece of chunky chain I had in my stash. And I made these wee charmy, dangle bits and added them to the chain using split rings.  These are beads that I have had in my stash for years and years, so unfortunately I don't have a shopping link for you.  But even if you have old, broken costume jewellery hanging about, it's perfect to take apart and make a dangle charm with.   They can both b

How to make Beaded Christmas Icicles

How to make Beaded Christmas Icicles What about ye folks, its Lee here.  I was recently contacted by  to see if I wanted to try some of their products and do an honest review.  Now, I have not been paid for this at all, they simply sent me some products of my choosing.  I agreed on the premise that any review I give would be completely honest.  Oh boy am I glad they got in touch.  Their site is a bead lovers paradise with so many beautiful items to craft with.  My order arrived within 7 days which is incredibly quick and the products I got are awesome. I'm sharing a couple of videos with you today.  The first is the haul of goodies that I got and the next is a tutorial sharing these beautiful Christmas icicles.  These can be put onto your key ring, used as an accessory on a handbag or backpack or, as I will be using them, a Christmas decoration on my Christmas tree. The quality of the beautiful glass pearls and tiny crystal bicone beads is exceptional.  And the tool

Alice in Wonderland Mini Album

Alice in Wonderland Mini Album A very Happy UnBirthday to youuuuuuu Helloooooo my lovelies.  Please be gentle on me with this one as this is my very first proper mini album.  And I LOVE it but thats just me, lol.  I was surfing the web and having a nosey around Youtube trying to find some ideas for a pressie I could make for my bestie, Maddy ( ) as I wanted to make something really special for her birthday.  I am a subbie of Marion Smith on Youtube and remembered she made her own printables.  Click HERE for her Youtube channel.  As it was my first one, I felt a little intimidated by it so I kept pretty much similar to her design but with a few Loops's twists added in for good measure.  If you have never visited Marion's website or had a play with any of her designs, (link no longer availble) to go straight to her website.  The printables are delicious and I have bought another few to have a go at those too. As soon as I saw the Wonderland pri

Spooky Ghoul Halloween Earrings

Spooky Ghoul Halloween Earrings Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!  These earrings are perfect for Halloween.  Look at them....they are the Spice Girls of the Underworld all ready for their big debut on Halloween night.  OMG did I just say Spice Girls?  I'm showing my age, lol. Ok I know they won't be to everyone's taste, but I love these earrings. And how amazing would these look on you at a Halloween Party when you are all dressed up to the ghoulish nines?  I love them, I think they are brilliant.  But of course I am biased, because I made the little blighters, lol. The skulls are actually dyed polished Turquoise stones.    I added glass seed beads to look like the spine and leg bones and added little crowns made with a sparkly crystal rondelle and a bead cap.  I made their little skirts from 2 different kinds of bead caps. These purple ones are the same as the above earrings only with purple dyed polished turquoise. Look at those wee faces.  How could you not love the
