Last one

Something slightly different here. Hand drawn, free machined seed heads and leaves with bird appliqué. Next time I would use a heavier stabiliser as the machining distorts the fabric.

Another lampshade..

This lampshade is similar to a design I did on a workshop with Mandy Pattullo. So here are my scrappy little Hares , perfect for a nursery.

Inspired by a television programme featuring Marna Lunt teaching lampshade making I had a go at my own. I bought lampshades in charity shops and drew patterns for then. I them worked on my fabric collages from my fabric stash. Finishing off with hand and machine embroidery. The finished collages were hand stitched to the existing lampshade. Hard on your fingers!!

Holiday trousers

Here are a few of the little trousers I made for Ava. I found the pattern on the Internet and slightly adapted it. They take a very small amount of fabric.

Making dungarees

Here is my Grandaughter wearing one of the pairs of dungarees I made. I drafted the pattern myself using another pair of dungarees as a guide. They are comfy and cool and so pretty.
