Stolen design!

Please don't buy these fabrics by Nesshome, they are using my Spoonflower designs!
 (I've been informed they may have bought the designs from a 3rd party, so Nesshome may not be entirely to blame and I'm yet to contact them).

Below are my original designs.

DIY SOS Makeover After Shots

If you want to catch the episode of DIY SOS featuring my wallpaper, fabrics, toys, posters and cushions, you can watch it on the BBC iPlayer (UK only).

For anyone outside the UK, visit their before and after gallery where the whole makeover can be viewed.

The room in the top photo featured my Pink Elephant wallpaper, my Daisy Chain fabric blind, some custom designed posters, and 2 patchwork elephant cushions.

The room in the bottom image featured my fabrics used to make bedspreads, cushions and a tulip blind (out of shot) and 4 of my dachshunds.

The colours looked amazing on screen and I was so, so pleased with how everything turned out (not to mention how lovely it was to make some sweet little girls very happy!)

My wallpaper can be bought here and fabric collection from the programme here
$ convert automatically with a PayPal account, however I'm still on the lookout for a UK supplier!

alice apple on BBC 1 tonight!

I was so excited to have been approached by the BBC's DIY SOS team last year. The programme airs tonight on BBC1 at 9pm and features a very deserving family of a father and his 6 children who sadly lost their mother after her battle with cancer.

I worked closely with their very lovely interior designer Gabrielle Blackman to help in her makeover of 2 bedrooms for 3 little girls.

As well the few toys I donated, various wallpapers and fabrics with my designs were ever so kindly printed and donated by the brilliant team at Spoonflower...I couldn't have participated without their generosity!

You can buy the fabric and wallpaper from the programme here and follow Gabrielle's twitter feed during the show here.  I'll be adding more mini dachshunds to my Etsy shop over the next couple of weeks.
