About

Hi and welcome to my shop,
NANNA BONKERS
My shop started as a creative outlet for me while having 2 beautiful little boys at home, it’s now a great escape for me to work & create - I am finally well set up in my home & love arranging all my market, op shop, eBay & Etsy finds into my next project.

I love to sew using old & new fabrics or clothes & knits and turn them into a unique piece. I am a SLAVE to the process of finding just the right fabric, trims or buttons to complete a design - this can take daaays for all these things to sit well together & for me to let go of my treasures :)
I love ETSY & working from home & feel so blessed to create handmade goods for beautiful, appreciative people around the GLOBE from my HANDS & HOME.

I also love to crochet & looove wool in all forms - I was about 7 when I was taught to crochet, my teacher (& I have NEVER forgotten her) was much like the women out of HANSEL & GRETEL - evil (but it stuck, so thanks Miss V.)
So I have come back once again to crocheting & really enjoy it, my partner in the last few years has started calling me nanna & so came the name of my little shop, my mother is truly bonkers & has always been called nanna bonkers by my boys (& me) then my nanna - she was the original NANNA BONKERS so we have a long & increasing number of women in the family who the name sits perfectly with.
I mostly work without patterns & my designs do change & improve along the way, I am a compulsive do-it-yourselfer & take on many different projects, so have a peek, you will always end up with something you'll treasure & that is the beauty of handmade goods. OOAK - So much more special.

I hope you enjoy having a peek-a-boo in my shop & please convo me with any question or comment.

Enjoy your shopping day in - have a cuppa - have fun.
