Happy Bunny!

Well who’s a happy bunny now then? After a lot of digging and a bit of #@$$r*!!!! I finally wended my way through the intricacies of linking my Pinterest account to my Etsy account and my website. It wasn’t difficult – once I actually FOUND the instructions!!

ETSY SHOP UPDATE http://elliefiddes.etsy.com

I have just added four new masks to my shop.

These are vibrant coloured batik fabrics I picked up in Africa.  The style is inverted box pleat, a two layer mask with a filter pocket built in.  These sell at £5.00.

The pleats on the mask open when worn to show more of the pattern.  Below are some examples.

Face coverings in my new Etsy shop

I have opened a new Etsy shop, and have listed some face coverings/masks there.  

I have made them from vintage fabrics and from vibrant coloured fabrics.  

This vintage one was made from Greeff “Bird of Paradise”  I hope you like it 🙂
