I LOVE this pattern! I have made many of these little guys and have given them as gifts. It's easy and fun and then you have all the new little friends! Thanks!

Absolutely gorgeous bag that has been beautifully made and shaped and I know my friends will be envious that I have such a unique and special bag. Thank you.

About

The road from cold feet to creativity

I learnt to knit and felt because I had cold feet - My first project was warm felted slipper boots. I learnt to knit on 4 needles, turn a heel and felt all at once.

Then I wanted a felt bag but had my own ideas about the design.

So I began to create.

9 years later I am still creating, still knitting, and writing my patterns for others to enjoy the creative process of knitting too.

I live and work in Leicester, Designing and knitting in my quiet studio with the company of Milo my beautiful lilac point Siamese .

I exhibited at at craft events 2007 - 2014 and in 2010
won a bursary award from Creative Leicestershire.

In 2013 I was asked to make a few guest appearances on Create and Craft TV to show my knitting kits and I have knit and Felt kits in various retail stores.

My patterns have been featured in both UK and overseas magazines. and since spring 2015 my patterns have been featured in “The Art of Knitting” magazine, published by Hachette Press,
