I am passionate about the environment so I always try to use recycled materials in my work which I buy from charity shops including old bed sheets, pillowcases and clothes as you can get lots more material for much cheaper. As well as recycling fabrics I also recycle plastic bags by melting and fusing them before stitching them into something new or I will just re use them as they are.
My love for textiles started in 2010 when I had to make an appliqued cushion at Secondary School in Year 9. That same year I got my first sewing machine which I quickly got to grips with so got busy making loads of cushions! Since then I have taught myself other techniques including patchwork and quilting which is now my passion.
