I have been making and sewing since I can remember & have also worked as an accessory designer & pattern maker for many years.

I have recently immersed myself again in the world of DIY and home sewing. In the meantime a whole world of web-based communities and resources seems to have sprung up which is very exciting.

I have started designing and selling accessories patterns on the internet and have also begun a blog as a place for me to add free tutorials & ideas for adapting my patterns etc, as they come along.
