I love making unique creatures, it takes me back to how my business all started....
My story started in 2009,
Christmas was looming and with 3 boys and not much money for presents I
started to hand sew presents, my background is in art and textile
design although up to this point I hadn’t really done much sewing apart
from clothes during and after I was on the fashion design course at
Blackpool and the Fylde college.
I had been reading a book for
bedtime to my youngest son all about a mudskipper called Splurge, he
lived underground below our earth and wasn’t happy as earths rubbish
kept landing in his world, my son loved the character so much I decided I
would make him a toy of it for Christmas, night after night when the
boys had gone to bed I sewed Splurge, once I had finished him my partner
and I couldn’t stop laughing at how funny he was.
I was so excited
for him to be opened on christmas morning. I made my other boys fabric
robots. I also made some girly gifts for family members too. I had saved
a lot of money plus really enjoyed my time making them with love.
Since then I have gone on to make hundreds of handmade items but hand
sewing in the evening whilst watching a film is still my favourite
thing. I love people's requests and interpreting them into a handmade
