Welcome to The Makers' Journal!

I design original clothing and accessory patterns for both women and girls. I also make small gift items, accessories and lingerie as well as developing original artwork which I then print and make into small collections of homewares. I like to design things which express a sense of joy and freedom.

My PAPER PATTERNS are printed onto a beautiful 100% recycled paper and include step by step instructions, diagrams and a swatch of fabric to use as a guide when selecting your fabric.

The quality of my finished patterns is very important to me and as such i do not use a photocopier. To minimize the impact of my business on our precious world all of my patterns are printed to order and each is an original, I do not carry any stock. Once printed I then fold and pack the pattern into a plastic envelope which is heat sealed to ensure it arrives safely. This envelope is tough enough to last for the life of your pattern.

All of the gift items and homewares are hand made by me. I'm a really good sewer and super fussy so you can be assured that when your items arrive they will be of the highest quality.

All orders are sent via Australia Post using a heavy weight recyclable bag.
