New items in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop

I recently made this little drawstring bag (smaller than my regular chopstick bags, it would fit a few pens or pencils or a mobile phone). The fabric is a beautiful remnant of embroidered cloth, that although it looks like hessian is lovely and soft to the touch. Finished off with a piece of pink satin ribbon.

It's now in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop and you can see it here.

Also new in the shop is this windchime, suncatcher that I refashioned from an old necklace that I found in one of the bargain bags of jewellery I sometimes buy from second hand shops. i was wondering what to do with this necklace, when I noticed that it made a lovely soft sound when the large beads jangle together! So I separated the strands, took away some of the beads, finished off the ends and added a small bell!

This is in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop here.

I've blogged before I think about the idea of a second Etsy shop, to sell vintage and supplies. I'm now planning to set this up this summer - I'll keep you updated!

They are very nice. I keep saying it, how I envy people who can do things with their hands.
