Super Speedy Sports Cars

My shops are undergoing changes this week.  The first being that my Etsy shop is now called "Cute Kids Designs" and can be found at'll still be making the same sort of things, with an emphasis on clocks, but I wanted the shop title to reflect that I also sell other items now (bookends, keyrings, greeting cards, etc).  More changes to come...

Today my mission is to handmade goodies for grown-up car fanatics.  I think I succeeded with these lovely items.

3D Vintage Car Card by rosesandsentiments on Etsy
£10 (+ £2 p&p)
This 3D Vintage Car has been made from a red speckled card and includes opening doors, seat, steering wheel, clock and even a acetate windscreen all made by hand.  The car has black mudguards, realistic wheels and some shiny large sequins to give the effect of light's at the front and back.

Spare Parts Candleabra by Big Oz Little Oz on Folksy
£15 (+ £5 p&p)
Homemade candleabra. Made from scrap metal and scrap car parts. Rubber pads underneath to stop scratching.

Framed Dinky Car Photograph by KettleOfFishDesigns on Etsy
£12 (+ £3 p&p)
This photo will appeal to anyone of a certain age who had these cars as a child, or anyone who loves vintage and collectables. A perfect gift for those hard-to-buy-for chaps!  The frames enhance the vintage feel perfectly and are included in the price. Overall frame size approx 19cm x 15cm.

Vintage Car Felt Keyring by Little Crafting Bird on Folksy
£6.99 (+ £1 p&p)
This car is a Morris 8 Tourer vintage car. It has been hand drawn and cut out and carefully sewn together and the details added.  It would make a great gift for a man (or woman).  The car measures approximately 10.5cm x 5.5cm (not including ribbon and keyring)

Gear Ratio Clock by LedonGifts on Etsy
 £29.06 (+ £3.22 p&p)
This very unique and original clock is made from a 4th gear ratio that was once used in a Honda F1 car.  The centre of the gear is carbon fibre, in keeping with the motorsport theme of the clock. The clock mechanism is mounted onto this. Each gear has been engraved (by the Honda F1 team) with its own unique part number.

Car Print Book-Style Kindle Cover by Kitschy Coo on Folksy
£22 (+ £2 p&p)
This case has thick board in three panels so the Kindle is protected from the front and back, and it has a rigid spine so it opens like a book. There is an inner pocket for your Kindle to sit in, with a cutout that allows you to turn it on and off or charge it while still in its case. A lime green elastic keeps the cover closed when not in use.

Racing Car Print by ialbert on Etsy
£16.15 (+ £5.17 p&p)
Digitally created racing car print, printed using archival pigment inks on a luxurious heavy weight fine art paper with a matte finish. These prints are signed, dated and numbered (when applicable) either on the front or back of the print.

Ayrton Senna Quote Typographic Print by SamOssie on Etsy
£13 (+ £2 p&p)
Hand rendered text, digitally coloured and professionally printed onto hessian embossed heavy bright white card.

Sudsy The Little Car Soap by soapalicious on Folksy
£2.75 (+ £1.85 p&p)
This cute car comes in a drumstick lollypop scent and its also kind to sensitive skins as it does not contain SLS. Sudsy is a huge 135g so will last a very long time

Stained Glass Car Suncatcher by Carole's Glass on Folksy
£9 (+ £2.50 p&p)

These cars have been made out of stained glass to hang in your window as a sun catcher.  Each car measures 9.5 cms x 5.5 cms and has been made with contrasting glass, with irredised glass for the windscreen and dark small glass nuggets for the wheels. Each piece has been copper foiled and soldered together. A ring has been attached for hanging purposes.
