Shop Announcement:

Hello. Thanks for visiting my online shop. If you would like to catch me in a real bricks and mortar one, then head to no 36, Gillygate, York, where I am part of a Pop up shop for the next 3 weeks until June 9th with 6 other artists from York. The shop looks wonderful.

Love this


I have stitched this fabulous old Welsh teatowel into a practical little pouch or cosmetics bag. With a view of Harlech Castle on the front and a map of mid to North Wales on the back, there is a hint of summer holidays, the sea, and the Welsh coast. I have managed to squeeze in the heraldic shields of Bangor, Newport , Flint and Powys, so they don’t feel left out!

The fabric has been backed onto recycled cotton fabric to strengthen it, but it is still soft. It measures 16 cm wide and 17 cm long with a red zip opening measuring 16 cm. It has a matching bright blue lining.
There is a finger hook to hang it up somewhere special to admire the view! and I have stitched a button covered with the immortal words Cardiff onto the front. The purse is finished off with my own embroidered name tag.

I do try to recycle. Your pouch will be posted out using clean, recycled wrapping from my collection of old books maps and wallpapers.
It will be posted out as Royal Mail 2nd class with proof of posting, which takes 3 days.


I hunt for old teatowels at York Car boots, they have such wonderful humour and illustrations. Some of my all time favourites have simply been framed and hung on my wall!
With a little care, they can also be sewn into something practical, and hopefully extend their life a little longer.
