In the times of credit crunch everyone is looking for inventive ways to update their wardrobe. If you do have several jerseys or jackets that look slightly tired but are still perfectly wearable, why not try and refresh them by adding a small accessory, such as a fabric brooch?
LinenMe has a range of beautiful handmade rose brooches on offer; the colour palette ranges from natural linen shades to playful lime green, from pure white to vibrant bright red.
The rose can also be added to your handbag, a scarf or even pinned to your hat. The good news is that, unlike the majority of fabric brooches, these linen roses have a firm shape and do not loose it that easily.
You can also use this handmade linen accessory to decorate your dining table. Just make sure your guests remove the roses before tucking in – they are not edible!
Christening is one of the first important occasions when the newly born receives a lot of attention from family members, so every parent is on a mission of finding a beautiful Christening robe.
There is a wide range of Christening robes and gowns available from the retailers, and even a wider choice of fabrics that the robes are made of, mainly silk and polyester. I have been thinking for a while that linen could be a perfect alternative, and decided to add a new product to our ever expanding linen product range at LinenMe.
My inspiration came from an old traditional Lithuanian design, originally used by my grandmother who absolutely loved crafts. Since linen was the only widely available fabric in early 20th century Lithuania, she made the most of it!
The current version of this Christening set is slightly modernised and includes hemstitched Christening robe, a matching bonnet and a pair of cute baby shoes. All items come in two colours – white and ivory, and are made to order. The garments can also be decorated with embroidered ornaments, pleated details or baby’s initials.
Robe, bonnet and shoes: 100% linen
Colours: white, ivory
Sizes: made to order
Available from LinenMe – a retailer of unique linen products.
