About

My shop is named after one of my beautiful cats..........Mrs Bellybutton. She was a rescue cat and sadly died on Good Friday 21st march 2008 aged 18 years. She was a huge pure white, blue eyed, deaf cat

I am British but I live in the Netherlands. I love making things and have a Bdes degree in Design. I'm into all sorts of handmade crafts but I especially love recycled objects such as carpets woven from plastic bags and totem poles made using old five gallon liquid containers for the faces. Nothing that gets thrown away is safe from me and my ideas some of which work and some of which DO NOT :( (You can't win 'em all).

I make coin purses and wallets and bags in bright colours and threads using both new and recycled fabrics and embellishments. If you don't see what you want here email me and we can see if we can make a plan. No…

If you don't see what you want here email me and we can see if we can make a plan. No two items are alike but ALL are made with enthusiasm and a sprinkling of hippy chic essence. :)

I am an avid hand sewer and love to repurpose old materials and fabrics into mini (sometimes massive) works of art or wearable pieces such as brooches and earings. I have long played with mosaics using broken tiles and crockery and this is a development of that but using fabrics and beads etc.

I am on a continual hunt for something unique or at least unusual and love the idea that I own something nobody else in the world has. I guess one off items are my favourite and therefore I champion handmade goods as each one is different from the next.
