Hello again ladies. I have no real excuses for being away this long - it's mostly laziness. But I'm back now, and I have nine new auctions (including three bags) which went up last night and I'll have two more go up tonight (not telling you what those are - you'll have to wait - bet they're not what you'll be expecting).

I'm going to Reading festival next week, so if there's anything you see and you want me to take it down early, I will be very much open to offers as I will be needing the money. Also, if you have a request for a custom item, I'm very open to that too. I'm just finishing off one dress (should be all done tonight) so after that I'm pretty free. So, on to The Stuff...

Alice in Wonderland Skirt and BagCollapse )
I Love these to bits. The fabric is so beautiful and easy to work with and it always ends up with something stunning.

Rainbow Brite BagCollapse )
This is absolutely huge and very very cool. I have a bag the same size and style and I use it all the time - I've given up on little bags!

Kids Favourites SkirtCollapse )
I couldn't not have this fabric, it's too amazing. When have you ever seen ANYTHING with Pete's Dragon on?!

Tattoo Print BagCollapse )
This fabric's such beautiful quality, and the print is just stunning. And I think it works quite well as a handbag.

Care Bears SkirtCollapse )
Anyone who knows me knows that finding Care Bears fabric is the bane of my life - it's just not out there as vintage stuff to recycle - all the quilt covers just have one big print on them. But I found some! And itsn't it beautiful?

Pooh Bear SkirtCollapse )
This fabric and this ribbon are both absolutely beautiful and wonderful quality. I have tried my best to do them justice.

Harry Potter SkirtCollapse )
I'm in love with this skirt, The style of it is just too cute for words. It's very much like a school skirt I had when I was little.

Strawberry Shortcake SkirtCollapse )
And finally, the Strawberry Shortcake. So very sweet. I bought the fabric from America and when it arrived it actually smelled of strawberries!

7:39 pm - Yet more listings!

I spent the weekend getting back to what I love - recycling unloved things into beautiful new clothes!

There's a wuzzles top & skirt which look so cute together...Collapse )

a shoe people skirt with a little frill around the bottom...Collapse )

a postman pat envelope skirt (who doesn't want their legs in an envelope?)...Collapse )

and a fraggle rock skirt! tasty.Collapse )

As ever, it's all up here.

Sorry this one's a little late - these all went up on Friday.

There's been a bit of a gap because I've not been well and I didn't think that it was fair to list things when I wasn't sure that I'd be able to post them. But I'm all better now, and so I bring you...

six new CrikeyChief! auctions!Collapse )

Finally, may I reccomend that you check out Princess Wonkle? Some lovely jewellery type gubbins including supercute Care Bears stuff.

p.s. I have a degree! Go me.

I'm back from download now, and very tired! Luckily, i set up ebay to post all my dresses for me before i went away!
Follow the cuts for a preview pic of each item, linking to to item listing.

reversible cherry/polkadot dressCollapse )

This is my personal fave. It's been a real labour of love though - about a month in the making. I doubt I'll make another one, so grab it while you can.

return of the tote!Collapse )

I've made and listed one of these before, but I felt that I needed to list another to match the dress, because we all need to co-ordinate wherever possible! For shoes, go have a poke at www.retrorebels.com - they've got some amazing stuff quite cheaply. I found their stall at Download and fell head over heels.

my little pony halterCollapse )

I made one of these as a custom order for someone and fell in love with it. The fabric looks like it was made for the pattern, it's so beautiful. So I made another one!

polkadot topCollapse )

This one was a surprise hit last time, and loads of people said that they had missed it becuase ebay crashed as it was ending, so because I'm nice I've made and listed another.

Rainbow Brite halter dressCollapse )

We all know that I love my Rainbow Brite print, and once I'd made the My Little Pony dress, this one was crying out to be made, too.

green polkadot wrap dressCollapse )

In the 50s, this was underwear. This one's made up from a vintage pattern, which also includes a pattern for matching pants. I've still got half a mind to make those ones up, too!

If you've got any questions, don't hesitate to ask. And as always, I'm happy to do custom jobs for you - just let me know.

current mood: sleepy

6:40 pm - just a sneaky peek...

I'll be putting this one up next week. It's clearly the best thing I've ever made - a fully reversible cherry/polkadot halter dress. Two dresses for the price of one!Collapse )

5:05 pm - Badges!!!

today i offer you...handmade brooches!

I'm looking for £2.50 each. 50p postage for as many as you like. Only payment methods which I will be able to spend by Wednesday please (so postal orders, cash or hsbc or halifax cheques or in-branch deposits).Collapse )

p.s. Does anyone want Leeds Weekend Tickets (with camping all that jazz)? We have a pair. Or we will have when they get posted. Would really rather sell them here than evilbay.

8:18 pm - New Skirts!

Hello ladies!

So, this week's skirts are all made from some of the lovely vintage stuff I've collected recently. Some of it's never been used before, so I've had loads of fun thinking how to best showcase it.

I'm in love with the Ed the Duck skirt, but I'd have to say that my pick of the week is the My Little Pony one. It's just so sweet and girly.

Teaser piccies under the cut, leading to each auction.Collapse )

It's coming up to Download time, and I'm in need of money sharpish! I will need at least fifty baked bean and saussage toasties. Therefore, if you make me a decent offer, I may well take the auction down for you. Similarly - if you want a custom piece, please get in touch.

4:16 pm - I just keep giving...

OK, ladies...the inaugural competition.

The prize: Your choice of a free lucky-dip skirt*, or 50% off your next invoice.

And what do you have to do?

I need pictures of you, out and about in something I've made. It really couldn't be easier. The best one (judged by me - it's an impartial competition, see...*ahem*) wins. Simple.

The closing date is June 13th (which is when I get back from Download) so go on - get snapping.
The closing date has been extended because I have had no submissions! I'm now giving you until June 30th. The chances are, just submitting *anything* will mean that you win - so don't be shy!

You can either leave your pictures here, or email them to me at ponyponypony at gmail dot com.

*I'll make sure it's one that fits you, don't worry.
