About

I'm in touch with my inner child; I make quirky toys from recycled and vintage fabrics. They may look slightly wonky, because Wonky is a GOOD thing for toys, they just need extra love.They aren't sewn wonkily 'though :)

I have run creative workshops with children of all ages, and I test my ideas on them as I go.. (they don't seem to mind).
I'm adding in some other stuff from these from time to time, including DIY kits.

Convo me if you need something creative developed on a theme for your children or class to make.

I am really enjoying making things for the sake of it now, after years of doing other stuff. All my wonky little people come with their own personalities, I don't plan it, just the last stitch seems to do it !

I hope you find something that appeals to you, so you both have fun together...

WG always uses recycled materials for packaging, so the insides look better then outsides.
