Sewing Is My Thing!

I have always enjoyed the creative process of making my own clothes and accessories. After studying photography and graphic design I enjoyed using my skills in the film and TV industry.

From costume and art departments this led to opening my own clothing boutique in St Kilda in the 80's.
Becoming a mum put an end to the shop but not La Loon, in my spare time I made and sold babies and children's clothing.

After a time back in the costume area I became interested in recycling anything and everything making and selling my products at monthly markets.
During this time I also opened my Etsy shop in 2009 but found keeping up with mother hood and stocking my markets something had to go.

My baby is an adult now and so I have picked up where I left off with the wonderful Etsy world it's fantastic to see how it has grown with so many a m a z i n g and creative people!
I'm loving it!
I have a new baby Della my Moodle who is my newest lively assistant!

My studio is based in Melbourne, where I create wearable pieces of art from fabrics gleaned from myriad of unusual sources. Recycled knitwear is a prominent feature which makes each item unique with a sense of fun for all ages, whilst promoting a responsible attitude to the environment.
