About Bees And Blossoms

Bees And Blossoms

Textile bags and jewellery - as unique as you are.

I make textile accessories - soft, squashy fabric bags and fabric jewellery. My main income comes from bespoke dressmaking, and that leaves me with wee off-cuts of beautiful fabrics. These are too good to waste, so I developed a way to use them. I piece them together to make one of a kind fabric lengths and then use these panels to make my bags and jewellery designs. It’s a lovely way to use teeny pieces of often very expensive fabrics. I mix these with purchased fabrics to sew my own bag designs.

I studied at the Scottish College of Textiles, graduating in 1990, and worked as a commercial product designer until early 2006, when I set up my own dressmaking business. I’ve been sewing and textile crafting on an almost daily basis my entire life, one way or another.

I was thrilled to be invited to present my work to the buyers at Liberty of London, and whilst I didn't get through to the final selection, I live in hope that one day my wee bags will sit on their shelves.
