Mum of two sweet little pirates and a wild cupcake busy making their home, clothing and surroundings a little more fun! I have hand-appliqued their (and our!) clothes, bags, pillows and whatever I can find with soft cozy cotton knits for years - but just now ventured into the world of etsy-selling....whilst renovating our 1750's house , chasing the kittens, growing our own veggies, taming and planting the big big yard .....and taking lots and lots of pictures of our busy and full life!
We moved from a small island in the English/French Channel, where I worked as a Landscape Architect, to the US four years ago, had another baby here and I started staying home with the three little ones. I've always loved drawing ( I sketch all my designs first before they get…

We moved from a small island in the English/French Channel, where I worked as a Landscape Architect, to the US four years ago, had another baby here and I started staying home with the three little ones. I've always loved drawing ( I sketch all my designs first before they get cut out of fabric) and 'making things' - specially out of recycled, vintage materials. Our house is almost entirely furnished by my weird and wonderful 'finds' -lovingly re-painted , re-purposed and given a new life with fun fabrics, cushions, applique's and embroideries.
Then I moved on to my kids clothes.... luckily even my nine year old daughter is still more than happy to try out any new creation!
So... now, when my little world sleeps I have a chance to get creative again!
And the recycling bit....all appliques are cut from repurposed shirts/onesies/fabrics, a lot of them bought at Salvation Army, so it's double -feel-good recycling! ;-)

I am more than happy to include your ideas in my custom orders! So - let your creativity run wild!
