HandBag Accessories

Those who know me, know that I love handbags. When on holiday and visiting local markets; the first place I head to is the handbag section.  And my favourite bags are the ones that come with accessories; pretty little zip pullers or cute decorations.

I started making some cute Bag Charms for my own handbags, and am now addicted to making them!  So have decided to list some on my MaxieK Creations website.   These add such cuteness to a plain handbag, adding that little bit extra 'bling'.

Below are a sample of what's available on my Website:

Cyrstal Bead Heart

Red Beaded Bag Charm

Aren't they cute? These will also make great keychains. To see other designs, head over and visit my MaxieK Creations website.

Scarf Types & Styles

Scarves come in all styles, shapes, sizes and colours.  I've noticed recently that various styles are called different names in different parts of the world. When searching online, this can be pretty confusing!

So to avoid confusion, below is a list of the styles we have available in our Maxies Knitwear shop.

Wrap Scarf

Wrap Scarf
This is the traditional style of scarf ... long or short but this scarf can be wrapped around the neck and worn as tight or loose as desired. 

Infinity Scarf

Infinity Scarf
Also known as a Circle Scarf; Infinity Scarves have the ends sewn together, and can be looped around the neck once or twice.  


Similar to a Circle Scarf, except a Cowl cannot be looped. Some styles sit comfortably over the neck and hang loose (or tight) in front. Others are held closed with buttons, ribbons or a knitted cord.

Ruffle Scarf

Ruffle Scarf
Ruffle Scarves are made with a special type of ribbon yarn. The yarn is usually polyester or mesh -  these can be worn in a variety of ways and add a bit of flair to any outfit.

Similar to a Cowl; a Snood is circle in appearance but is large enough to wear over the head while sitting comfortably around the neck at the same time.  

Mesh Scarf

Arm Knit Scarves
These lovely scarves are made just as they are named ... arms are used as needles.  Made with wool, polyester or mesh yarns; these Scarves are stylish and lovely to wear.  


Scoodies are hooded Scarves.  Fantastic for freezing cold winters; these Scarves are hats with scarves that wrap comfortably under the chin.
