Welcome to my boutique where you can find my life size felt sculptures of beloved and memory jolting British treats made with my heart and two hands. I know the rest of the world does not call things by the same names so here is my mini glossary: Biscuits = Cookies Ice Lollies = Popsicles Sweets = Candy Puddings = Desserts (usually with custard or cream) Rock = Straight stripy candy canes with letters through them eaten at the British seaside ;)
I hand sew all my food by hand with love and a hint of hunger. Each tiny stitch is hand placed and each piece of felt hand cut. I don't work to any patterns but my own, which I draw and cut with old fashioned pencils, paper and scissors from my prototype sculptures...each piece has been designed from scratch using my own techniques ;)
I am inspired and kept going by the almost permanent attachment of my baby son to my lap.
My first piece was the Jammie Dodger, a biscuit I love and plays a role in my family history. I have happy memories of trying to bite the slightly crumbly bottom biscuit clean off the stretchy ruby red jam as a child...a feat I have yet to achieve despite years of dedicated practice!
I hope you love my work and that my pieces bring back memories ;)
