My Handmade Crafts
When I carefully positioned my handmade travel card holders around the wooden clock, I couldn’t help thinking how fitting this arrangement was. Paris in 1921 suddenly reminded me of the movie Midnight in Paris and the concept of travelling back in time to the Roaring 20’s. I sometimes feel a pang of nostalgia for […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
My old passport was almost unrecognisable by the time it reached the end of its shelf life. You couldn’t guess it was a travel document anymore nor could you tell my nationality from the front cover as every letter had faded beyond recognition. It was fine by me, the ever longing World citizen but […]Continue Reading... 6 Comments.
I’m playing the craftsmanship card this week with a new set of oyster card holders, courtesy of an order I received a little while ago. I followed the same online tutorial as last time although I would strongly advise to attach a thick piece of fusible interfacing onto the lining. This will help the […]Continue Reading... 8 Comments.
Dear readers, I think I have fallen in love all over again! And you might well call it a case of puppy love because the object of my affection is the loveliest, sweetest, smartest and most gorgeous French bouledogue I’ve ever come across! Unfortunately for me…it’s not mine. Why oh why? We both have French […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.

It’s been bugging me for quite a long time and finally, I decided the other day to put an end to the cheap, conventional and most uninspiring piece of plastic design that was coming in and out of my bag. And that is the oyster card holder dear readers, which all of us Londoners have […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Looking at the heart cushion, you could be forgiven for thinking that this post is slightly out of turn or that I’m experiencing a pang of nostalgia about the commercial schmaltz-fest that is Valentine’s Day on February 14th. It’s actually a second cushion commission from my friend Clorinda but this time she wanted a […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Yesterday was an exciting day as it was my very first time doing a market stall display at a local Art & Crafts indoor market. I shared the stall with my good friend Rita who was selling Egyptian jewellery and some of the clothes that she designed herself. The market stall display was a bit […]Continue Reading...

For most celebrities, an invitation to walk down the red carpet is the moment they know they have made it…my handmade iPad Mini sleeves believe they are certainly no exception. Remember when I mentioned working on 5 different iPad cover designs two weeks ago? Well here they are, dressed up to the nines in tartan, […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
My first handmade Kindle cover was a recent present for my friend Helen’s birthday. I’ve used a metallic blue dogtooth fabric with a black, white, yellow and metallic silver Lycra fabric for the flap cover and a turquoise shell button. The inside has been lined with black fabric and padded with cotton wadding. I also […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
