Sunday Stash # 18

I just couldn't resist this polka dot fabric to use as bag lining. Bought on my last visit to Patchwork on Central Park. I have a thing for red and white bag lining and this fits the bill perfectly.

Ruby-Jo at Leeloo

I am very excited to say that Ruby-Jo brooches are now being sold at Leeloo!

For those of you who don't know, Leeloo is an online community and store that promotes up and coming Australian designers and artists. The lovely Angela behind the website has put together a range of fantastic handmade items many of which are one offs or exclusive to Leeloo.

The brooches you see in the photos are one off's that you will only find on Leeloo. Because I only have one of each of the vintage buttons used in both brooches you won't find that same combination of button and fabric again.

See the rest of my brooches at Leeloo here.

You can check what else is for sale at Leeloo here.

Sunday Stash #17

This fabric makes me think of wallpaper or curtains in a 70's kitchen. I am using it for brooches and I bought it at Patchwork on Central Park.

Lovely green vintage fabric I bought from the Camberwell Markets. It is destined to become brooches and clutches.

Look what arrived in the mail

I finally got round to ordering some Ruby-Jo sew in labels.

I will be using them on some new clutches that have been in the works for a while.

Hopefully I will be able to show you soon. I have people staying for 10 days so I am not sure how much sewing I can get done while they are here.

A Brooch Sale - But Not Exactly

Well, technically it isn't a sale, but allow me to explain.

Ruby Jo brooches are going to be sold by an exciting new retailer. I won't say who just yet. Without going into the number crunching, to bring my brooch prices in line with the retailer I am increasing their price to $33. Currently the brooches are selling for $22AUD in my etsy and made it stores (although no brooches in made it at the moment)

About the sale part. The price rise will be happening on Monday 11th May so this gives you about a week to buy them at the current price which is quite a bit cheaper. Hence the sale analogy. So if you have been thinking of buying any of my brooches now is the time.

Oh and there are a few of the first brooches I ever listed on etsy marked down in the SALE section so there is some sort of real sale going on too.
