I came across ‘I Love Mr Mittens‘ on Instagram and instantly fell in love♥… What girl doesn’t need a chunky over-sized knit in Peruvian wool in their winter wardrobe(?!), and when it’s hand-made, even better.
I’ve been meaning to take up knitting for a while now, and having seen these pieces, I think I may have to try my hand at it… Plus, it’s getting soooo cold in Sydney at the moment, maybe I’m being a little melodramatic, maybe I’ve acclimatised, but I definitely didn’t think to pack any of my warm clothing when I left the UK.
Here are a few images from their Instagram account… and be sure to check out the talented lady behind the knitting needles here.
Their ‘made-to-order’ service will be available soon, and I guess would be the perfect unique gift idea for someone special. However, I’m currently lusting over this cardigan ($425), and beanie ($175), totalling $600, it’s not cheap by any means, but just imagine the super-soft cosiness and hours of happiness that these would give you!
Stocked only in stores in Belgium and Australia, they also sell online and ship worldwide.
Hello lovely blog followers, I hope your weekends were lots of fun. Mine certainly was – close friends’ Birthdays, partying, the hooded DJ Holy Other (amazing), & the Little Dragon gig (equally as amazing), lots and lots of dancing (now my legs hurt) – but it was worth the pain and I didn’t want it to end. But it’s now Tuesday and yesterday I decided to be productive and list all the lovely things I have made/have available to purchase. My bracelets went down a treat, so I have made some more, as well as a few extra jewellery bits.
I love black and I love silver, so I decided to combine the two and make these feather earrings… I used black goose feathers, sterling silver 925 earring hooks, and copper jewellery wire.
I wear my feather earring with a little black dress of an evening and also with my DM’s and little leather jacket for a casual daytime look.
I also have 8 earring cross cuffs available – perfect for the current Grunge/Goth trend (elements of which, I like to covet all year round). Agreed, there were many a fashion error made in the 90’s, but this is one trend of the 90’s I love.
You can buy these, as well as my handmade cross bracelets on my eBay page – you don’t need to wait until the auction ends, as most of them are ‘Buy it Now’ – perfect for impatient eBay buyers like myself.
I’ll leave you with the super talented Little Dragon – the atmosphere at Birmingham’s O2 Academy on Saturday was unreal.

In my previous crafty post I’d mentioned that I would be selling some handmade bracelets… I’m just waiting on some more material but once it arrives I shall start getting creative again.
It’d be great to know if there was much interest in these (I can then order the required amount of materials), so please do leave a comment if you like them… These grunge, gothic style leather cord bracelets are really durable – I’ve kept mine on constantly since Christmas. Simply tie them as tight as you’d like at the wrists.
I do both single ones and double wrap ones… £3.75 and £4.75 respectively. They’re also great to layer up.
I shall be selling them via eBay (I shall notify you all when they are ready) and will post out every Saturday. I will ship internationally but P&P will be a little extra.
