As long as I can remember, l have loved creating things. There are so many beautiful materials available to work with - it is often difficult to know where to start - or what to stick with!
I have, for some years, upcycled customised denim jackets. These feature embroidered designs, applique, hand crafted embellishments, paints and combinations of many different items and styles. No two are ever quite the same. I have also made many customised items.
Customised/personalised items will be individually designed and created just for you. The three owls opposite were recently made for a TV commercial.
Please use the 'Contact Me' form at the bottom of the page.
I love working with wonderful fabrics, wools, felts and cottons in particular.
I have two Brother embroidery machines and a fabulous little Juki, whose one job is to sew through thick fabrics, such as denim.
Do you have a question about my products or my processes? Send me a message and I'll get back to you soon.

Hello and welcome to my first Blog.
I do not believe it is too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year, as it is still January, just!
I have decided to add a blog to my website as, having not returned to Hebden Bridge weekly Craft Market post pandemic, I certainly miss interacting with my lovely regular customers and the weekly browsers who would stop by and chat.
Here I will update readers on my crafting and collecting (and de-stashing) journey.
Hello and welcome to MoreFunThanWork.Com
I have been busy upcycling denim jackets for much of this year. Many are 'one of a kind' designs. The website is currently a work in progress....
I try to describe the jackets as fully as possible, including the size/dimensions. Having worked with denim for some time now, I have come to realise that the sizes quoted on the sewn in label are often hugely different to the sizes we would usually expect in clothes. To try to ensure a perfect fit, please read the size description carefully and contact me if more information is required.
