For the love of tourists

July has flown by with very little time for making. Having not had time to even pop in Custard Hall for a couple of weeks I was delighted to find a whole list of sales waiting for me. The girls in the shop suggested I make something with a local theme for tourists to take home. I was a bit stumped and then after a bit of searching Ebay for old postcards of Dorset an idea came...
I bashed out these four prototypes one evening and only remembered to photograph them on the doorstep literally on the way out the next morning.
Instant sales meant I got cracking on another batch this week.
They are all backed in vintage fabrics
  and filled with 100% lavender
Edged with my favourite cute mini bobbles
 and embellished with a button or bow
and a handstamped tag!
So bring on the tourists, I'm off to the beach with my girls and a friend!


  1. They really are a wonderful idea and a lovely gift to take home!
