Hackney City Farm Market


I was so lucky to be sitting next to Miwa of indie label Miwary on Sunday at the Hackney City Farm Market. She is so lovely and we had so much in common! It was great to sit and make and chat all day long. She makes such inspired treasures such as these adorable fabric teacups and mini teddy brooches.

How to: Taped Screenprints



Learn how to create bold, geometric prints on fabric which can then be turned into cushion covers, tote bags, or stapled to wooden frames to be displayed as artwork. This simple technique uses everyday sellotape to mask off areas and (despite the title!) doesn't involve a screen at all.

Spinnst du oder was?

The fibre actually still smells like sheep which is comforting in a weird way...










I've been wanting to spin my own yarn for ages now and I finally got a drop spindle! I was down Broadway Market on Saturday and managed to pick up a great kit from the lovely woolly shop Fabrications.

Hello mega-hyper-cyber-net world and welcome to my new, first-ever blog. In this space I hope to document all my crafty explorations, share creative ideas and tips on making stuff and highlight the myriad clever designer-makers out there as I stumble across them, to inspire and promote handmade as a way of life!
