Off and Racing

Today at Lyssy May I am excited to announce that a gorgeous new range of felt hats have arrived just in time for the Winter Racing Carnival Season. The designs are available in a range of stunning colours and designs.

Pictured right is one of the 100% wool felt hand appliqued designs that has been teamed up with a one off Lyssy May bag that features a handknit flap closure and an original 1920's button that I collected in an antique button shop in Hampstead (London) about 6 years ago.

I love collecting little treasures like buttons, buckles and ribbons and squirreling them away for a special project. For me, the best part of design is spending the time on the detail to see what looks just right and works for the overall feel of the handbag. There were 3 buttons in contention for this design and it must have taken at least 30 mins of deep thought until this treasure won out!
