Bag Handles

I finally got some time to get my sewing machine set up and get a little crafting done.  I had some black leather material which I though would be great as a bag using our wood effect round bag handles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had an idea of the shape I was looking to create and having made a cardboard template of the pieces I would need, I set to work.  The leather was easier to work with than I expected it to be and for a first attempt, I’m pretty pleased with the result. The brown wood effect handles are a nice contrast to the black leather but we do have lots of other sizes, shapes and colours of bag handles available.

Here are some other examples of bags we have made with our range of handles:

Our range of long bag handles.

 

We’d love to see any bags you have made using our handles.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week.

Weaving Loom Boards

 

We are having such a creative week here in the Proops office.  How fun is this IPad cover which we have made using our latest product – an A4 weaving loom board.  We are also selling these as part of a set with our smaller sized weaving loom boards.  The smaller board is the perfect size for phone covers, which we have also made.

 

The weaving loom board sets come with a comb and three different threading needles all made from plastic, making them easy to use and safe for children. They would be a great project for them during the summer holidays to keep them busy for a while!

These looms can be used for more than just phone and tablet covers, so why not get creative and don’t forget to tag us in your photos of your projects, we’d love to see what you’ve made!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

New Candle Mould

How good does our new three-wick candle look on the tray with all the cacti and succulents.  This is our latest candle mould design and we are currently working on an insert for it which will mean it can be used to make sections for cake slice or wedge-shaped designs.  These will make fab bath bombs and decorative candles.  The candle mould is currently available on the website and comes with a wick holder.  The insert will be available soon so keep checking back.  We are also working on some new designs.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

St Patrick’s Day

May the sun always shine on your windowpane, may a rainbow be certain to follow the rain. (Irish Blessing)

 

It’s St Patrick’s Day this weekend which conjures up images of leprechauns, pots of gold and shamrocks.  Well unfortunately we don’t have the leprechauns or the pots of gold but we do have the shamrocks in the shape of our shamrock disc cutter!

If you are planning a St Patrick’s Day celebration with children, these glue spreaders would be great for arts and crafts activities and the vibrant green colour would fit perfectly with the theme.

If you are celebrating St Patrick’s day have a great time and good luck finding the pot of gold, I may just raise a glass of Guinness myself to cheers the leprechauns who guard it!

Thanks for stopping by.

PS We have lots of other shaped disc cutters available, follow the link and take a little look.

Steampunk

I found a few bits and pieces in with my beads and trinkets which I thought would be perfect for a Steampunk inspired piece.  Are you a fan of Steampunk?   I have been looking for ideas on Pinterest and Instagram and some of the creations are fabulous.  If you have created anything I’d love to see it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.
