Ooops gallery
I’ve been super busy making hoops this week as next Saturday is the grand opening of Ooops! and my work will be on the wall with some other amazing artists.
I’m really excited and can’t wait to see the finished shop once it is ready to open. Photos will follow. I promise!

Sorbus Scarf – Coming soon!

I’ve had the sewing machine out this evening! This is a sneak peek of our new Sorbus scarf. It can be worn in many different ways. Here it is as a cowl, scarf and shrug. I love it. I hope you do. What do you think?

Hooping Marvellous!

20150411_153407I’ve been playing with different media this week: fabric, buttons, silk, decopatch, washi tape, double sided sticky tape… what’s not to love?  I made a bit of a mess in the process (oops!)

This make was inspired by Eva Cassidy’s Songbird

I tried a range of different methods for covering the bamboo rings including wrapping with silk embroidery thread, washi tape and decopatch. I think all three look fantastic but were all a little fiddly to achieve.

I think the final hoops are absolutely stunning and my brain is buzzing with ideas for more hoops which are already on order!

Songbird Triptych is for sale £40. Please get in touch to order.

Granny shrug

It’s finished! I’m really pleased with this. So much so that it is going to be my first ever item ‘for sale’.
I used a pattern I came across on pinterest but made it super chunky and used a hand dyed yarn to give a pop of colour and interest. I hope you love it as much as I do!
