Replacement sieve/mesh/sifters /powder screens for powder compacts


New Sieve mesh sifters can be found here, on e bay.  It is now virtually impossible to find new sieve/mesh sifters for your vintage powder compacts anywhere else. I was driven to learn the old skills of making bespoke sieves/mesh sifters because of frustration at not being able to buy what I wanted ANYWHERE. Now I make and sell these all over the world, made to measure for individual compacts, or from my stock of 'spares' from my own collection. Please read some of my customers' tetimonials about my work at the end of this review.

I can also refurbish and remake your old stinky (they usually are!) mesh sifter to be hygienic and functional, clean and fresh. I use either traditional or modern materials, and can even make sieves in 100% cotton materials for allergy sufferers.

Leather slip covers to protect your compact are also available. Please read on....

....And this is what we started out with: a broken sieve in a right mess.

POWDER PUFFS (especially the slim variety)

Powder puffs which are slim enough to fit your compact, and not made of sponge, are also becoming impossible to find. I have developed a wide range of these, copying vintage designs and materials, to suit many types of compact.
In particular, some of the KIGU and STRATTON compacts have inner lids into which most modern puffs are too fat to fit. I can solve that problem for you with a slim velour and satin puff.

Bespoke service

All shapes and sizes of sieves and puffs can be made to measure for your compact if I have it to work with. This shield-shaped compact needed a very special sieve and puff, as you can see. The sieve fits snugly, and the gorgeous compact is now fully able to be used by its owner... or just admired!

HOW IT WORKS

Customers send me the their measurements and a detailed shot of their  compact via e bay, and I can often work from these if I have a similar compact in my own collection. If I do not have a similar compact in my own collection, and for more complex or unusual compacts, customers will send me their compacts by insured post for a bespoke service. IF YOU HAVE THE OLD 'FRAME' FOR THE SIEVE, I CAN REFURBISH IT WITH NEW MATERIALS. All items are returned by insured post.

Choice of edging for sieves

Sieves can be edged in pink/peach/cream velour to reflect traditional materials or they can be edged in a more robust cotton edging for everyday use.  I also try to match the brocade backing of powder puffs to the tone and colour of your compact.

RECENT EBAY FEEDBACK AND TESTIMONIALS

'Wonderful lady, a total perfectionist, highly recommended, superb.’
 
‘Outstanding. Highly, highly recommended. The item is bringing me a lot of joy.’
 
‘This was a brilliant service and great value. My vintage compact has been restored to complete working order with a new mesh sifter that fits perfectly, and an ultra slim powder puff that fits inside it. I felt that it was in safe hands with Little Feet thanks to her clear communication. Her craftsmanship is just fantastic. A very special touch was that the puff was made for me out of material that complements the design on the compact. I am delighted to have found Little Feet's page and recommend her work to anyone with a vintage compact in need of a sieve and/or a puff.’

'... you are a genius!!!!'
