Transforming the old, broken and discarded

I have always had a passion for making and in particular repurposing old and found materials. Whether it's cards, accessories or quirky pieces for the home I'm hooked on designing and making items that are unique and fun. Turning discarded things into someone's special treasure. My shop 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.
