Hand printed creature cotton canvas bag, your very own Flower Merchant bag that you can carry around with you, your own portable creatures! You can have a look at the Flower Merchant in my creature listings!
These creatures have been hand printed and then hand painted with a variety of bright coloured acrylic fabric paints. *This paint has been heat set but will fade slightly if washed.*
The Crazy Creature Lady!
I live in Northumberland at the moment, but I’m originally from Aberdeen. That’s where the creatures started, from a book about making hand sewn dolls, bought for me by my mother. I started with the patterns in the book…and then sort of branched out.
My first entirely unique designs weren’t exactly perfect, but I didn’t let that stop me, and I like to think the creatures I sell now have improved a bit from those initial creations! But it started out as a hobby, and it wasn’t until I lost my job a few years ago, that I thought what the hell, why not try to sell them?
There are some wonderful charity shops and that’s where the majority of my materials come from, I love raiding them for clothing and fabrics and bits and bobs. The majority of my creatures were originally a skirt, or a shirt, or a pair of trousers, and because of these unique beginnings, each of my creatures is unique.
I love making them, and I like to think that they add a touch of quirkiness and joy to those who buy them!
