I wanted my designs to build on traditional crafts but with a contemporary edge, and hopefully I've achieved that. My appliqué and patterns have been inspired by woodland animals with contemporary colours and fabrics, and I wanted my clothing to be unique but functional too for little ones!
With the arrival of my friend Alex's first baby, I started making baby quilts/playmats. Each I've designed independently and sewn by hand.
I love cushions, or is it just me? So naturally this was my next step. I think my polka dot stag is my favourite.
Next came my nephew's 2nd birthday, and as a crafter what could I give as a present other than some handmade goodness?! After browsing several infant sewing patterns, I was somewhat uninspired by the selection available for boys. So here's what I came up with.
Leighton enjoyed playing on his new wiggle bug in his new trousers!
From there I moved on to girls clothing.
So that's it so far, thank you so much for spending the time to look through what I've been up to. I would be so grateful to hear your suggestions, and I look forward to choosing my favourite. You can send your replies to me via blogger or my twitter:
