Welcome To My Website...

...I'm Jo and I'm based in South Yorkshire.

Inspired by the films Yanks (1979) and The War Bride (2001), where people had to ‘make do and mend’ by re-using fabrics to create new items and so my interest in sewing and recycling began.

Recycling isn't rubbish, Upcycling is unique! Pre-loved, Pretty and Practical

More information ...

 

I started off making patchwork cushion covers from velvet scraps, progressing to making an applique cot quilt and bumper set to celebrate my son's 1st birthday.

From making handmade presents for family and friends.

I wanted to learn more, going to sewing classes to make clothes and curtains but otherwise I'm self-taught.

 

I recycle/upcycle fabrics, occasionally buying new fabrics, to create one off individual items.

The gallery pages feature a range of items such as shoulder bags, shopping bags, messenger bags, homeware items such as peg bags, table runners and more,any fabric left from projects I create patchwork quilts, rag quilts,keyrings, lavender hearts and braided rugs.
Handmade in Yorkshire, no 'stock' photos are used, the photo's you see are the items I've made. Prices include pockets, zips and magnetic fasteners, I don't charge extra for these!

I sell items online from my Etsy shop and also via my facebook page, see link at top of page.

  In 2016, I have expanded my range of items with some new designs for my smaller items and some new bags as I have a commercial licence to make and sell Bags by Rae Hoestra. I sell other items, some of which are my own designs, I only make one bag out of every fabric I have, so what you buy will be one of a kind.
