I spotted this seller today, and despite my pretence of saving money, I just had to get some goods. I've been making hats lately (I've been told I should sell them, maybe I'd better sell some so I can afford my craft orders). The etsy seller is
I adore this ribbon. They have it in dark brown too.
I don't know how I missed spotting this shop before in my previous journeyings through etsy.
These were the ones that drew me into the shop.

I can't wait to get this stuff in the mail. :)

Yoshimi's pretty coat

I love this coat. I like trench/belted coats anyway. :)
(for more about this coat+pattern go here: )


I hadn't been over to Modcloth for a while, so today I went over and had a peep at the coats.
Now I'm practically drooling all over myself, they have so many lovely coats.

I love this one: the collar is gorgeous, perfect for pairing with hats.
I love the scallop details. The color is cool too.

I love it. The lines are graceful and the print and the buttons are fun.

Another coat that I just adore, does this coat remind anybody besides me of caramel candy?

fabric flowers

I'm a huge fan of flowers. Floral fabric, millinery flowers, flower jewelry.
Anyway, I use and make them--a lot.
I'm always scoping out the web for free tutorials on how to make fabric flowers, so I thought that I would post a few of them here:
From martha stewart crafts:

I love these, they make these ones with craft punches. Both tinsel trading co. and Blumchen have amazing little stamens that you can use for the centers.
The tutorial for these lush flowers can be found here:

The rest of these are for drooling over: above: from Satomi on Burdastyle
