In 2018 I made some stuff. Turns out I quite like doing this. Lesson learned; things that made you happy during your childhood (in this case making loads of random sculptures / animals for no reason) are likely to still make you happy as an “adult”.

Break from trading

I realised today that I haven’t updated this blog for just under two years. Woops!

As of March this year I’ve taken a break from trading. I’ll still experiment with stuff, so you might find some of my work for sale in the future, but I’ve no idea what form that’s going to take at the moment! Currently I feel privileged to have a stable income allowing me the freedom to think about making work that I enjoy making, rather than what I think will sell.

Anyway, here are some random bits of stuff that have happened in the last two years.

Hopefully more updates soon.

New Dog Commissions

I’ve had a small flurry of requests for custom sausage dog draught excluders in the last month – I guess that’s what happens when people get a bit chilly and start searching for things to keep their house a bit warmer. Also, Christmas is next month; erk!

Logos in print

It’s  always nice to see something you’ve designed in print!

Last year I designed a logo for Leeds Permaculture Network, and recently they’ve used it to create some really nice bookmarks:

I created the logo by scanning in a sketch and using OpenSource graphics software Gimp and InkScape to create a vector image.


I also did a little logo design recently for Lauren’s knitting pattern and button etsy shop, so that she could transfer it into a rubber stamp:



It’s made me want to design my own rubber stamp, but I think I need a bit of a re-brand first!

Embroidery / henna


Hi there,

I’ve been experimenting with hand felted felt and embroidery this week – I’ve used embroidery threads to reproduce a henna or mehndi design. Not totally sure about the colours of everything, but will continue to experiment…

Vintage Tweed Sausage!

My latest sausage dog, made from vintage tweed fabric! I think this is my favourite of the dogs I’ve made so far . I haven’t used thick tweed before and it’s lovely to work with, so I’m going to keep my eye out for some more.

New fish brooches coming soon…

At the moment I’m working on a new set of fish brooches made of old ties and scraps of shiny fabric, with buttons for eyes.

IMG_5514IMG_5516IMG_5517IMG_5518They’re fun to make and I’m enjoying using loads of tiny scraps of nice fabric that I wasn’t sure what to do with.

I also have  little sale on at the moment – check it out here.
