I like to make things, I have to make things. If there comes a day when I can’t do that I won’t be on the planet any more.

Making bags is a relatively new thing for me and it’s something I’ve taken to as my eyesight is too poor these days to allow me to make the miniature work I loved to do. I say making bags is relatively new, as a student I used to make paper bags of my favourite albums to carry my artwork. So it feels a little like I’m coming round full circle as the bags I’m making now are mostly focused on albums but now in fabric.

The thing I like most about making things is the challenge or project I set myself . Sometimes it doesn’t matter if the project isn’t completed. If I feel I’ve met the challenge I’m happy.

Everything I sew is on a Janome Memory Craft 4800. I love my walking foot and zipper foot. LOL!
