Monstera details. She's coming along really nicely. Hopefully she'll be ready for show by tomorrow.  #tuesdaytease #mydesign #imakebags #bagdesigner #riflepapercofabric #instasew #canvasfabric #golden #maker

A new week brings new possibilities. When you feel like you're up against a wall and can go no further, try side stepping.  Turn that 'mistake' round to your advantage.  Designers do this all of the time πŸ˜‰ and so can we.

I'd say this baby could stitch through concrete!  Back then even simple machines were beautifully made, ornate and made to last many lifetimes. There wasn't this continual clamour for the brand new.

Hooray it's a girl!! A girl brimming with as much potential as she desires, and we will do our best to help her recognise that.  Help our girls to be sure, be confident, be loved, be loving, be skilled, be relaxed, be at peace, be curious, be strong and be happy.

It's chilly out!  How do you glam up a snuggly camel sweater and dungarees?  Red lipstick of course!  It works (in my head) every time. πŸ’„ I'm spending most of the day writing and designing. Comfort is key to maximum concentration, but I find that dangly earrings or red lipstick gives me that extra edge, y'know?  What gives you that extra edge?

(Big) statement bag.  Just about large enough for my fabric stash...not. 😜

Love your curves.  This shapely frame purse is rather flirty!  My no sampling, fabric gamble paid off.  Very happy with how she looks. Thank you, thank you!  Next week I'll host a naming contest to ask my clever customers to name this naughty purse. The pattern is for two sizes (which both work on one purse frame). 😎

Be still my beating heart!! The Monstera fabric and gold pin dot pairing is joy to behold!  I have such plans for this, I might need to get more... Thanks @thecraftymastermind for the lovely fabric and sweet post card. 😊 xx

Not even a making a sample, no testing, no nothing.  I'm designing a new pattern straight onto the good stuff. Damn the consequences!  There won't be any consequences...will there? πŸ™πŸ™.

Two of my favourite things rolled into one. Lush green Monstera foliage and lush fabric (coming to my letterbox soon). Thank you @riflepaperco @annariflebond you've made me very happy! 😍

Pig tails.  Maybe a bit Britney?  Maybe I don't care. As a child I wasn't allowed to have long hair.  As an middle-aged adult I'll do what I like!  #friyay is for pig tails and red gloss lips, yeah! .

Yummy post, just in time for weekend crafting in front of the telly.  Both of these Animals are for my girl. A plush cat by @kirikipress and a sweet bird by @nancynicholsondesign I love using kits as much as l love designing them. They're wonderful as they allow you to craft and switch off at the same time 😎

My monkey is high up in tree and I'm getting vertigo and freaking out whilst resisting  the powerful urge to tell her to 'come down from there!!!' But at five years old she's already so sure of where she wants to climb to.  All I can do is step back and there to encourage and gently assist. 😍 .
