…so here are some books that feature (reproduction postcards of) vintage advertisements.  My favourite is hands down (no pun intended) the gloves that come with a cigarette pocket.  One of my biggest bugbears is that women’s clothing rarely comes with useful pockets.  Usually the pockets on our clothes are too small to be of use or, worse, they’re FAKE pockets just added as a design feature.  Seriously, WTF?  We need pockets.  We need FUNCTIONAL pockets.  I have a whole rant on this subject but I’ll just leave you for now with what would probably be my slogan if I went campaigning: Pockets Against the Patriarchy!

If you’d like to purchase any of these books then click here to visit my Etsy shop.

Another little book that was made using leftovers. I’ve had this lighthouse charm lurking in my studio for years, so it’s lovely to have finally used it!  The leather is one of my favourites, so sumptuously soft that it just invites being stroked.

Available in my Etsy shop, click here to view.

I made this book in October but haven’t been able to blog about it because it was intended as a Christmas gift.  The lady who ordered it asked for something feminine and pretty, and for it to feature her friend’s name.  Sorry the photos aren’t great, I made the mistake of sending the book off before checking the photos were straight!

Gorgeous Alice in Wonderland themed fabric, paired with vintage linen thread.  It was a match made in heaven.  Two of these books have already gone to their new homes but the other two can be found in my Etsy shop.  Click here to view.

These two have already been sold but that’s no excuse not to show them off.  They were made using a mixture of coptic and long stitch (sometimes known as French link) binding.
