Handmade lovelies from the heart of England.

My little shop started after I decided to leave my current job to concentrate on something that truly made me happy. I started this whole process with a pile of fabric with no idea what direction I was heading too and since then my shop has morphed into a collection of brightly coloured whimsical items made with absolute love and care.

Nothing makes me happier than hearing customers tell me that they love there items and that is what keeps me working stupidly long hours and spending way to much money on fabric!

Thank you for stopping by to read a little bit about the person behind Curious Miss Clay.
