Art owl 4

yet another Art owl! I seem to be obsessed with birds at the moment 🙂

Art owl 3

Making a different shaped owl from scraps of fabric and odd buttons, it took about an hour.

Dress collar

Making a plain shift dress I decided to give it some colour with an egyptian style collar, using squares of different sizes, hand stitched onto the linen, the collar took 3 times as long to make as the dress did.

Turquoise Crow

Using the pattern from your ebook on art dolls I made a turquoise crow out of all the scraps of fabric I keep in a basket, I've probably got enough scraps for a flock of these 🙂

Cat badge

My cat Brian has great big eyes and a question mark tail and here he is in felt!

Felt Badger brooch

A small brooch made of felt, for my husband, because our kids call him Badger, because his hair is turning grey.


The first art doll I made – she's called Liberty because the fabric is a Liberty of London design and is beautiful. She's sitting on the ironing board in front of  the bookcase in my studio.
