BlytheKing iSockits

Today I received a super special item in the post and would like to share it with you!

I have a few little gadgets and as I'm obsessive with keeping them clean and scratch free, I recently discovered Etsy seller BlytheKing!

She makes the most amazing "iSockits", cases for mobile phones and laptops from vintage fabrics. I bought two this week and am so impressed with them. The fabrics are beautiful and they're handmade to such a high standard.

I bought the 'Saga' Design as pictured above, with a 'Feed Sack' design for my boyfriend. I spent a while looking at generic phone cases and skins online and was not happy with the choice or quality for 'official' or 'replica' cases. I'm so glad I discovered Blythe's Etsy shop and her beautiful handmade eco-friendly iSockits!

I purchased the deluxe style cases which feature a small pocket on the front for headphones etc, which is really useful. The case fits very snug around the phone, making it perfect for protection, while still allowing you to grab it quick if you get a call. They're so lovely and such a pretty accessory!

I love buying handmade from Etsy and it's sellers like BlytheKing who are making it more and more convincing to buy everything from handmade artists. I especially love the little 'BK' stitched initials in the back of the case!

Another great thing...which I'm still amazed by...the iSockits travelled from USA to UK in 4 days! I think that must be a record for my online purchases, and I'm very glad as I'm so impatient with online shopping!

Check out the Etsy store here...the choice is amazing, I struggled when deciding on which ones I wanted to buy! LOL!

Wood House Knits

It's been a while since I blogged but I thought I'd share a new seller with you.

One of the great things I've found with my Etsy shop, is the great community there and the fun, lovely people you meet. A new Etsy friend of mine, Jennifer of WoodHouseKnits opened her shop last week and I thought I'd share her creations with you.

Her shop features PDF patterns for knitters, so if you enjoy knitting, check her shop out:
