All my own work

I learnt to sew when I was very young as my mother and grandmothers liked to 'make do & mend' in the most beautiful way of course and they showed me how. I love to sew, knit, applique, patchwork, quilt and will turn my hand to anything crafty!

My love of art, sketching and embroidery has come together in my textile art pictures. Each one starts with a sketch, the fabric is cut and pieced to fit then all the detail is added using freemotion machine stitching totally freehand.
I love to work on custom orders and regularly work on Wedding or New Baby commissions as well as house or shop portraits.

When I kept getting asked 'how did you make that' I decided to write my own range of sewing guides to share my ideas and methods with Etsy buyers. I keep the style very simple for beginners and add as many photographs as I can to make them easy to follow. I love to use bright, bold funky fabrics as well as soft vintage pastel cottons.

My simple makes have been featured in many magazines such as Mollie Makes, Sewing World and Lets get Crafting and I have made an exclusive felt design for the Mollie Makes Christmas Book

I am thrilled that buyers often come back to order another custom picture and seem to like my conversational style of pattern writing. Etsy is a great community to be a part of.
