Easter Favours

The weather outside is frightful but inside it's delightful! I decided to cheer myself up amidst this winter snap by making up some Easter favours that will soon be wending their way to my nearest and dearest. Why not try making some of these yourself? Simple to make, they will surely cheer the hearts of those you love on Easter Day.

These Easter bundles made from vintage fabrics and doilies are tied up with various buttons and bows. Fill them with your favourite Easter chocolate or other goodies!

Vintage doilies make lovely dolly bags by simply threading ribbon through the holes, gathering them up neatly and tying off with a lovely bow. Adding a vintage button finishes them off nicely.

Alternatively, cut large circles of vintage fabric with crimping shears (using a plate as a template) and tie with ribbon, raffia or lace, and more lovely buttons.
I will shortly be taking some time off work (yippee) and amidst a frenzy of Spring Cleaning (I feel one coming on) may even get a chance to do some more listing in the shop and experimenting with resin. Hope your Easter is totes amazeballs folks!

Get some inspiration

Spent a very full day listing new Vintage Inspiration kits and smaller trim and button kits in the English Rose Vintage shop today. I've also begun listing a whole bunch of vintage buttons and there are more to follow very soon.

Here's a little taster of what is already in the shop. Have a lovely weekend!
