Flying the flag


Here's a peep at the latest bit of nonsense that's been filling my time - a tiny beaded Union Jack from a pattern found in the latest issue of Making Jewellery magazine. It has a limited shelf life - I doubt I'll be sporting it past the Jubilee and maybe the Olympics, but this one is destined either to be a bag tag - maybe for my dad's bag (still waiting to be posted) or a tag for my keys. It's a bit big for a mobile phone charm but I can see obvious ways to reduce it even further and then, who can say?

  1. Cool! I seem to be finding it tricky to summon my patriotic gene. Must get more excited about the Jubilee.

  10. Ooh, I like it! Ever since moving to the States, I've been a little bit more patriotic, mind (I think it's an uncontrollable reaction to constantly hearing them declare that the US is the 'best' country in the world...)

    You should make some up, stand outside the Olympic stadium and you'd make a fortune.
    Grief, your dad is trendy - if he ever gets that bag, of course!!
