Pattern Archive











I came across some patterns I designed years ago* (these are the ones I'm least embarrassed about) they're so different to my current style! I must have been going through a 1940s influence with the bird and flower designs, maybe they'd work well on cotton lawn or a light weight dress fabric?

*Apologies for the poor image quality, they're a lot sharper on my computer!

New shop addition?

I made this tortoise as a present for my new baby niece. The pattern is from a 1970s craft book which I have altered slightly. I'm thinking about making some for my Etsy shop...not sure yet.

Large Dogs - Vintage Fabrics



I've added some more large dogs to my Etsy shop as it was looking a little sparse. I've enjoyed using some of my favourite vintage fabrics where the motif is too large for the mini dachshunds. Also below a wholesale order which is on its way to Gallery@500ft in Lynton, Devon.

Vintage Posters on eBay



I've had a few of each of these posters for a couple of years now so decided to list them on eBay. The first one is by a poster artist called Harry Stevens and the second by R J Bigg. They are both original screen prints and in amazing unused condition, my photos don't really do the colours much justice! Good luck to whoever wins, I'm sure they wont disappoint :)

Colourful Patchwork


I made another appliqued panel for a cushion cover by applying some of my own motifs over existing vintage fabrics - the purple/red Katvig fabric I got from my talented friend Jane Foster. I'm keen to develop the idea with my 2 big boxes of tiny vintage fabric scraps!
