New Shops for March

Good morning everyone and happy Handmade Monday!  Here's my bit of show-and-tell for this week - Emergency Hair Fix Kits.  It's a small purse (so far I've made one leather and one hand-woven wool) containing a folding hairbrush, clips, grips and bobbles.  The clips and grips are attached to the purse by a cord with a spiral wire in the end for the bobbles so none of them will get lost.  I'm going to list them on Etsy later today so fingers crossed they'll do well.

Todays blog is about the shops which opened on Etsy this month.  As always, I encourage you to pop along, have a look and show some support for the new shop owners.  Etsy gets bigger and harder to get noticed every day.
