I wanted a little something to slip into my wallet with my business cards in and this is just perfect! It ties in the my business colours (grey & white spot) with my core business sheep making it doubly perfect! 10/10

The Sherbet Patch

My oldest possession is a beautiful, red felt stocking that my great aunt made for me for my first Christmas.
It has a hand appliqued reindeer on the front, and, 45 years later, still makes an appearance every Christmas.

This stocking was the inspiration for The Sherbet Patch.

In the 1980's I studied textile design at Horsham School of Art , but life took a different direction in 1986.
I volunteered on a kibbutz in Israel during the summer, a three month placement which kickstarted a love of travel, of Israel, that continued until 1991.
Now, I live in a rural village in South Wales.

I have always loved experimenting with texture, colour and design, in various media, but fabric is my passion, along with photography.

The Sherbet Patch was set up in February 2012.
