This bag is beautifully made with a lovely selection of textiles in my favourite colour blue. The bag is also beautifully lined. This is the second item I have purchased from Alison - I am a real fan!!
Hello! Thank you for visiting my shop and taking the time to find out more about what I do.
I love colour and pattern. One of my early memories is playing with my mother's embroidery threads and that childhood fascination with colour has stayed with me.
My mother, an old-school sewing teacher and talented dressmaker, nurtured my interest in textiles and taught me to sew, knit, embroider and crochet. These skills have always given me great pleasure and I can't remember a time when I haven't had several projects on the go.
Over the years I accumulated a large stock of dressmaking scraps, pieces of material I had never quite got around to using, odds and ends of wool and embroidery threads, sequins, beads, ribbons, buttons ... it drove my husband mad!
One day I combined some strips of my materials with layers of stitching and my unique stripwork fabric was born. I used that first piece to make a bag for a friend. She loved it and soon I was getting requests from other people when birthdays and Christmas came around.
What started as an occasional hobby slowly grew and I created designs for more products. Every item made with my stripwork fabric is unique - and that is very important to me. I try to make my tartan and tweed products individual but inevitably there can be close similarities.
I hope you enjoy looking at my shop.
