New Goodies

After receiving a suggestion from a customer at a recent Suitcase Rummage I've started making fabric guitar straps.  They are adjustible, washable, comfy! 60in x 2in with upcycled leather strap ends.  Be sure to check them out on Facebook.

I've also made a few iPad covers - for both the original iPad and the slightly smaller iPad2.  I only have one in stock at the moment but will be making more soon.  If you'd like one in a particular colour - please email me

More fabric wallets

After a wonderful day at the Handmade Expo on Saturday (despite the very wet weather) I've got some more fabric wallets to share via Facebook.  Be sure to check them out there and write "SOLD" in the comments if you'd like to buy one!

While you're there (on Facebook) be sure to "like" the Made.X.Manda page to keep up to date with my market visits and new products!

As I mentioned we were at the Handmade Expo at Ipswich on Saturday and it was great to see so many people out checking out the handmade goodness even though the weather was a littel damp!  Thanks to everyone who popped in (out of the rain) to say hi to my Mum & I at the Made.X.Manda stall.

Happy customers (Kathy) checking out the fabric wallets - March Markets

I had a request for a mobile phone case with neck strap from a lovely lady who'll be back at the May markets to check out my proto-type!  Hope she likes it!

The next Handmade Expo is Saturday 16 April - hope to see you there!

Sneak Peak

Awhile back I made myself a fabric wallet (when the zip in my leather wallet broke) ... and since then I've received lots of lovely feedback.  So I've decided to make a few to sell.

My Wallet

Each wallet is one-of-a-kind, made from padded fabric, with 6 credit card slots, zipped coin compartment, 2 note/receipt pockets and magnetic closure.  They are $25 each + postage.

I'll be putting some up on my Made.X.Manda Facebook page if you are interested in buying one.  Otherwise I'll have some at the next Handmade Expo, 19 March 2011 - from 8am at the Ipswich Turf Club.

Email me at if you'd like more information.

Suitcase Rummage

Made.X.Manda went along to the first Suitcase Rummage yesterday in Brisbane City.  While my goodies aren't really suitable for this type of 'market' I had a great day.

Slight improvement

Still playing around with the formatting on my blog (should be sewing!!!) - looking a bit better now but still not 'there' yet!

Follow Made.X.Manda on Facebook for all the newest items available AND details of upcoming markets I'll be visiting!

Working on some new lanyards for point'n'shot cameras and hand-held game consoles in time for the next Handmade Expo Market at Ipswich on 19 February!  Just ironing out some issues regarding the best hardward to connect the lanyard to the camera/console ... looking for the strongest option!
