etsy find -fieldy tweed

Etsy seamstress Fieldy Tweed out of Glasgow, Scotland (2 posts on Glasvegas today... not sure why) has some crafty (ouch.. ed.) ideas for Harris Tweed. Hot water bottle covers, almost time. Coffee-press cozy, for the man who has everything. Made from scraps of (non-production?)Harris Tweed the colors are much brighter and varied than the usual browns and blues out there. Natch' this smart lady has a blog, start here.
[Update from Suzanne: "I used to buy all my tweed direct from the mill in Stornoway which has since closed - I have quite a stockpile! The Harris tweed labels come with the tweed - there is a quota of 4 labels per meter of tweed which will soon be going up to 8 labels per meter. Hope this answers your question."]
