Handmade characters, creatures and creations... all from recycled, preloved and precious pieces of clothes and materials.
Welcome to my website. My online shop is now restocked with lots of wee goodies to send directly to a loved one for a bit of lockdown love. (And don't we all need a bit of that!)
I use first class post but please remember posting times may take a bit longer during these Covid times. My Click & Collect is still available for those living locally.
I use first class UK delivery although might take longer than usual in this current crisis. If you would me to send to somewhere else in the world please get in touch.
All single hookheads come in a gift box. Animabaubles and tweedy birds too. I can add in a gift message and send directly to the recipient - just let me know.
I also do commissions. Please get in touch if you are interested. They are a very fun present to give. Check out my instagram feed for some examples.
My name is Jen and I live with my family, Tess the dog and Daisy the campervan in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.
I am a self taught textile artist and have been making for quite a few years now. I have always used recycled materials for all sorts of reasons...environmental as well as my love of textures, patterns and history of the fabrics I use.
My workshop is full of bright colours and I live on the coast and am even lucky enough to see the sea from my window. The items I create are often useful and practical as well as decorative with a hint of humour thrown into the mix. I actually have been known to giggle while I make...
If you are interested in a commission please get in touch with me. I will need photos of your animal from different angles and I will also need to know of any important distinguishing features! I do make every effort to capture the essence of the animal in question however you must remember that I am working with preloved fabrics and the end result is a not going to be an exact replica of your beloved creature! :D Here are some examples of commissions I have done in the past.
