These wrap around aprons were the first garment that I made and have proved very popular. I make them in several different natural fabrics and three sizes.
The most recent addition, really big light cotton canvas bags, useful for all sorts. These will be a core style in many fabrics, some with pockets, fastenings and detailing.
My niece asked me to make a fishermans smock and after much trial and error and her help I have made a pattern that works. Regarding fabric, I think it will be a case of anything goes.
Simple large canvas bag, how much better than a 5p bag is this!
My favourite ever linen cushion, it won’t be long before I make another.Cushion covers will make an occasional appearance as I love making them.
Mixed fibre bag in a lovely fabric. It is fastened with one of the may buttons that I have hoarded over the years on a just in case basis!
Fabric for aprons all cut out, overlocked and ready to assemble. Ticking works so well for this garment, as does the black cotton drill.
Lovely Kelly our wonderful friend and market manager modelling a cape, one of a range that I made several years ago. Rested for now but may well come back.
One of the many ways I use scraps. I cannot bear to waste this fantastic coloured linen so use every tiny bit. This is scraps woven into a french market basket.
Occasionally I do a special commission and this was a favourite, for a hen do. All the hens had a pocket and filled it with memorabilia for the bride, such a great idea.
A bit of free hand embroidery. This piece was for a friend, I use embroidery for detailing and also lavender bags.
I am still as thrilled with these labels as the day they arrived! What with size labels and an overlocker I feel quite the part!
Lavender bags. I am so lucky to be given some beautiful linen offcuts and make cushion covers and lavender bags. Once again, never waste a scrap!
Just a corner of a kantha quilt I am making, I am not sure I realised what I was taking on so this one will be a labour of love that I will keep.
I get so much pleasure for knitting bobble hats! They help to legitimise all those boxed sets I love!
My collection of vintage suitcases. They make really good display items and storage between markets.
