Announcement   Welcome! I'm gradually getting re-stocked after a bit of a break, and I'll be adding new things often as I build up to full steam so do check back! I'm always making things, and you can find me anytime on Instagram (@tractorgirlmakes) and on Facebook (@tractorgirlmakes), or you are most welcome to drop me a convo here if you want a custom order. See you soon!

***

Everything you see in this shop is designed and handmade by me, in my little solar-powered weatherboard cottage in rural Australia.

I want to fill the world with beauty! I adore colour, pattern and vintage fabrics, and my personal mission is to get them out onto people’s couches and draped around bodies where they belong.

Ask me anything! I'm always happy to answer questions about my work, and I'm especially happy to help out if you'd like a custom order.

Check my "About" page for more about me and my processes.

About

I am a maker and curator

Welcome! If you happen to visit this quiet little corner of my shop, you will find that not only am I a maker of things, but I am also the writer and curator of a blog on contemporary craft, surface design, and photography.

You can visit it here ~ http://tractorgirl.com.au. Have a good look around! I'm always on the lookout for beautifully crafted objects and images to feature, so if you think you've got something that you think would be a good fit for the blog, I'd love to hear from you!

Welcome to my policies page!

I've been a maker and a dreamer since I was tiny. My mother was a maker too, and she and her family have been involved in textiles and clothing for several generations.

I adore pattern and texture and putting different combinations together, to see them them clash and sing - it's the best fun! (I also write about the history of fabric design over at Pattern Observer - http://patternobservercom, because um well... I confess, I'm a pattern junkie!). And I'm a trained jeweller and silversmith, although that's in hiatus because acid, fire and sharp things don't mix well with parenting ;).

My partner and I also have a cereal cropping and sheep farm near Wagga Wagga, Australia, and we live there in our solar-powered house with our three kids. X
(And a tractor or two.)
