I’m hooked on Folksy!

I read about this website a couple of days ago in the March issue of “Sew Hip”.  What a great site!  It’s very similar to Etsy but its a UK site so no having to convert from $s to £s when trying to work out the prices.  For me it has a nicer feel than Etsy too.

Anyway, I’ve spent a lot of this afternoon browsing Folksy – there are so many talented people out there.  I just love the cloth toys in the “Covetables” shop! 

If you click on “sewing” under the Practices column it shows you literally thousands of different things for sale that people have sewn.  Even if you decide not to buy anything I dare you not to feel inspired!

Also on offer are fabrics, notions, trims etc.  A lovely shop to browse is ‘vInTaGe VioLeT’s BuTtOnS’ .  It pretty much does what it says on the tin – lots and lots of original vintage buttons and trims.   Its well worth a look.

Don’t just take my word for it – click http://www.folksy.com/  🙂
