Detachable collars

I'm making a range of detachable collars in hold, patterned fabrics. This one is made from chambray and South African shwe shwe- a printed cotton.

New range of pouches

I've been working on a range of pouches- coin, iPhone, pencil cases- to sell at a Christmas craft fair in a few weeks time. This one is a quilted iPhone case in an African Dutch wax fabric.

Trip to the V&A

I took a group of sixth form students to London this week to see the Hollywood costume and the British ball gowns exhibitions at the Victoria and Albert museum. It was amazing! Had such a wonderful day. Unfortunately, we couldn't take photos, but we all did lots of sketching.
