Above are 4 Knitted dollies I made from felting lambswool. I knitted the bodies by machine after doing a term of experimental machine knitting at Morley College.

This is a little bag I made for my son Syd. He had done a drawing of a dinosaur which I made into a knitted pattern repeat. I then felted it, knitted a picot edge and sewed it all together.

Here is the pattern made into a little pillow.

Knitted Christmas decorations!


Bags and Cushions

Here are a couple of bags I made out of vintage linen tea towels - fully lined with an inner pocket.

These bags I made from vintage alpine curtains and the other from a linen tablecloth.

Vintage Fabrics

Sold by delightfuldesignerfabrics on eBay.

The above 3 fabrics are vintage Svenskt Tenn designed by Josef Frank. These were for sale on eBay. I just love these botanical prints and the colours are so vibrant. Some of these prints are available from Libertys store, London

I love this print, got some lengths on eBay which I have made into bags, cushions etc and upholstered a small 1950's stool.

This nursery print from the 1950's was a bed spread. A crazy combination of images that seem to work together.

I like elements of this print like the cart wheels.

Cute 1960/70 cat print.

This was another vintage bedspread dating from the early sixties listed on eBay.

I like these tree shaped trees, like children would draw if asked them to draw a tree.

This is a vintage Swedish textile I missed on eBay, I like the naive tree style and the inner detail.

Lovely 1950's print, I used this as my inspiration for the 'Mayo chair' above. I bought it from hideawaydesigns on eBay.

1950's atomic shapes.
