About

Transforming the old, broken and discarded

I have always had a passion for making and in particular repurposing old, found materials. Whether it's cards, jewellery or home furnishings I'm hooked on designing and making items that are unique, fun and turn discarded things into someone's special treasure. The name is a reference to Bagpuss, that saggy old cloth cat, like his friends in Emily's shop I like to invent and tell new stories about the things that I've found.
