Happy New Year! Hope 2013 has started off on the right foot! So, it’s back to work, hats, blogging…and everything for me! I’m currently finishing off a miniature top hat for a lady’s wedding. She wanted something really simple, so the trimming is just tulle netting layered up (her dress has a a tulle petticoat [...]
It’s been so warm here this autumn that it’s hard to believe it’s already December! And we had snow this morning! So excited! I started my Christmas shopping a few weeks ago, but I’m still on the hunt for the last few presents. Don’t forget if you want to purchase a hat from either Chalkie’s [...]
Sorry I haven’t written anything recently, I’ve been really tired out from work and a horrible cold (feeling better for having napped a lot today…). But my new store is up and open on Etsy : Pedal In Style! So go check it out! As I previously said, it’s a store just for my bike [...]
Autumn is here and I’m back to my hats! I’ve decided to open up a second store on Etsy (my first one being Chalkie’s Bazaar) just for my cycling caps! So, at the moment I’m busy sewing up the first lot of caps to put up for sale. It’s not been easy going back to [...]

This week I’ve been making a bunch of cycling caps for a polo bike team (http://saucylobstarz.wordpress.com). What do you think of them? Cette semaine, j’étais occupée à fabriquer quelques casquettes de cyclisme pour une équipe de polo (http://saucylobstarz.wordpress.com). Vous en pensez quoi?
At the moment I’m working on some cycling caps for some polo bike players. I’ve made the first batch of prototypes for them to try on but I’m not quite satisfied with the result so far. Being a non-cycle cap wearer it’s hard to judge how the hat should exactly be on the head. Will [...]
