New 50s style Kiss Lock Purses

For the last couple of months i've been developing a few new products to add into my range. This always seems to take me longer than anticipated as I've become a bit of a perfectionist, and want to bring you only the best and most quality products!

It took a bit of experimenting but now I have perfected the design and making technique, i'm pleased to present my new range of kiss-lock purses...

As with all of my products, the kiss lock purses feature exclusive prints designed by me, Clumsy Kate. They are also handmade by me, using quality materials.
I've gone for a larger size than many coin purses available, so that you can fit your cards and notes in their easily as well. But at 15cm x 13cm they will still fit easily in your bag.

I've started the range with some of my most popular prints, but if you love the idea of a purse like this but you prefer one of my other prints, just drop me a line at to request a custom order for no extra charge.

All these purses can be purchased for £18 each plus p&p from my Etsy shop. Look out for lots more new products coming soon!

Custom Alternative Wedding Gifts - Designed just for you!

It's that time of year when the wedding invites start plopping onto the door mat and you start to think "What am i going to give the bride and groom?" And if you are like me, I instantly chuck the wedding list in the bin and start looking for something a little more personal. This custom Under The Sea engagement plaque for instance...

If your bride and groom like old school tattoos, Day of the Dead, Tiki or Kustom Kulture you may not have to look any further for truly unique gifts. And the good news is it won't set you back a packet! With prices starting at just £20 for a custom photoframe, I can provide something for all budgets. This custom Day of the Dead cushion is available for only £32 and you can change the colours if you want to.
In fact, you can get any of my cushion designs customised in this way! Like these Swallows...

The process is really simple, you can either shop through my etsy store at  Then drop me a line through Etsy telling me the names of the couple and any other details I might need, such as colours, imagery, dates etc. can email me at to discuss what you need and I can send you a paypal invoice. With any custom order with a new design,  I will email you a photo of my initial sketch before I start the final piece, so if you want to change anything you can. You can even request matching items, such as this wedding album and matching invitations...

...or this wedding album and matching guest book...
I also have Custom Tattoo Bracelets available which make perfect mementos for Bridesmaids.
Or if you are getting married this year and you want something really unique to display at your wedding reception, what about a plaque which you can treasure forever...
Or for something truly unique that represents you to a tee, why not commission an original piece of artwork like these wooden canoe paddles which I decorated for a canoe-mad couple who spent their honey moon chasing the Northern Lights. These paddles were displayed at the wedding, and now take pride of place in their lounge.
I'm always happy to listen to your ideas and offer you a quotation if you are looking for something a little bit different. Please remember though, all custom orders do take time, so please don't leave it too late! For fabric pieces please allow 4 weeks for them to ship, and for wooden pieces 2-3 weeks.
