My Folksy shop

Nature has been providing a wealth of inspiration in recent weeks. Beautiful alliums, with their mauve, star like flowers, have particularly captured my attention .

I love combining my passions for gardening, spending time in nature and my skills as a designer maker. I enjoy creating a range of bags, using upcycled fabrics I’ve collected over the years. Working with preloved denim is particularly rewarding. It’s very hard wearing and provides an excellent background for appliqué and embroidery. Each bag is unique. I add different colours of topstitching and I vary the details in the embroidery on each one too.

I’ll be adding more as the days go by. Please do share the link to my Folksy Shop with your friends and people you think will appreciate these bags. I make them with attention to detail and offer a follow up repair service too. No fast fashion here! I’m still enjoying using bags I made around 16 years ago. Pretty good going I reckon.

Any questions? Feel free to drop me a line.
