About

I am a mother of three and wife to one. Before I had children I was a chocolatier and a baker. Cooking and baking were the way I was creative in my day to day life, but with two little ones it doesn’t work any more. I discovered I could sew and mother at the same time and sewing (toys in particular) has filled the creative void.

All my toys are designed and made by me. I use a sewing machine for most, but hand sew the details. Some toys may be similar, but all are unique. I use a mix of vintage and new fabrics and natural materials wherever I can.

You can also visit my blog to see what else I'm making.

My shop (and blog) name come from a nursery rhyme. Elsie marley was a bar maid and the poem about her is quite long, but the rhyme that children know goes like this:

elsie marley grown so fine
couldn't get up to feed the swine,
but lies in bed 'til 8 or 9!
lazy elsie marley.
