More vintage children's books that I love!






It's been a month of buying many vintage children's books with illustrations that I love.

Clothkits magazine review




*Was pleased to see Clothkits appear in the new sewing magazine 'Sew Hip' (Feb 2009 issue). It featured clothes and dolls that I designed. Kay's article was brilliant!

New felt butterfly brooches


I've now added some of my hand screen printed felt butterfly brooches to my website.

New screen print / collages





I've just added some more screen print / collages to my webshop using vintage and retro fabrics from my huge collection.

New Scandinavian Flowers screen print



This is one of my latest screen prints that I'm now selling on my website. I've spent Christmas working on a new 50's range of prints due to be printed soon.

Vintage lamp makeover!


I've a passion for retro lamps  - I often buy them at the boot sale and my partner re-wires them. I found this shade which I covered in some vintage children's fabric.

Clothkits dolls




I've recently made up the Clothkits Eskimo doll that I designed to see what it looks like. She can now join the other collection of Clothkits dolls that I designed a year ago.

Happy Lion




I designed some Happy Lion dungarees for children last year and have since been attracted to more vintage Lion items! (a bucket bought from the States and a metal 60s coaster bought in Brighton)

My latest children's books



I love vintage children's book illustrations and am starting to collect the work of Alain Gree. I love his colours and quirkiness. I've also come across the Daniel and Valerie french books.

Happy New Year 2009!


Happy New Year everyone! I'm determined to become a regular blogger this year.
Have just returned from the Brighton Sunday boot sale with a very sweet wooden cat!
