    About

    The Sewing Bug

    I have always loved creating and making, forever drawing as a child, producing creative messes!

    I did my art foundation course and then illustration degree in Bournemouth (2009 - 2013) and after moving back home, had a short stint creating banners and graphics for an online company.

    I really caught the sewing bug in the run up to a convention in 2014, where my soon to be sisters in law and I set about sewing 300+ song book covers to give to international delegates. My mother had given me a sewing machine years before but nothing is quite the catalyst for true sewing addiction as a short time span and mass production. The next big sewing project was my wedding, with gift bags, bunting and table runners made in vast quantities, and that was it, I was hooked! I then moved to Oxford after getting married to a wonderful man and decided 'Right! This year (2016) is going to be my year! I am going to start doing what I've wanted to do for ages! Make like a mad woman!' So I quit one of my part-time jobs to dedicate more time to making, working from home.

    Since then I've worked with various clients and printmakers, from doing basic clothing adjustments/repairs, to large scale room refurbishment with new curtains, cushions and even a customized deck chair! On my etsy shop you will mostly bags or cushions, which also find their way to craft stalls with me. I try to upcycle wherever I can as I hate waste, and am still experimenting with various fabrics, designs and colour schemes.
