About

The hobby that got out of hand....

I taught myself to crochet in 2012 after I realised my mother was never going to find the time to teach me. As the eldest of five and the only girl, my poor mother barely had time to indulge her hobby herself, let alone teach a stubborn willed child who predominately had a book in front of her face.

I failed a lot, I peered at crochet patterns and diagrams a lot, I swore a lot, things looked a bit lopsided a lot... and then I started to enjoy myself....

I then had my son who inspired me to push myself further, getting the sewing machine running; creating him clothes and spare ikea highchair covers for that particularly messy eating stage. I posted an early cover on instagram asking if there was a need for these....turns out there was! And I must admit I love hunting out new fun fabrics.

My creations, both crocheted and sewn are inspired by the books I buried myself in as a child and that take me back to holidays with my grandparents, trips to the Devon coast, cakes bigger than my face and adventures outside amongst trees and rocky outcrops.
I hope to invoke that feeling of cosy nostalgia I find in Enid Blyton, Hans Christian Anderson, Kenneth Grahame and Richard Adams through my makes.


Everything is made by hand to order, for you. I love personalisation and helping you create memories one thing at a time...even if the gift is from you, to you.
(They are the best kind!)

Feel free to drop me a Convo with any queries.
