Hello there, my name is Mollie. I am born in London, more specifically Enfield. I studied graphic design over the past years and now I am working as a designer.

It may sound strange, but this way I do my bit towards sustainable future and this makes me pretty, pretty happy about my work choice.

I felt in love with books when I was 12 and ever since we are together.

Re: Boning- Not just for Corsets

Quality of the inner is even more important, it is the part the person actually feels. So outer look is important but no to forget to inner one.

Crochet edge stitching will unnecessarily make the process harder.

Re: Sources for Chic, New Eco Fabrics

I agree, Nature's Fabrics offer reasonably priced, good locking stuff.

Very clear instructions. Thanks.

I always had trouble with my clothes wrinkling. Well, no more with this technique, and this is one of the positive effects.

Re: Free, Downloadable Templates for your Sweet Spiked Tote

This is something we can go absolutely creative about. Be careful not to make it too shiny, it would be hard for me.
