About Pocketful Creations

Pocketful Creations

I'm hopelessly addicted to fabric and I love to create!

Hi, I'm Helen. I'm an ex-scientist and born-again designer-maker with an overwhelming passion for fabrics. I love the design process of combining textures, colours and patterns to create something beautiful and yet functional. My studio is my large dining table which is usually buried under mountains of fabric, haberdashery, work in progress and my much-loved sewing machine. It's a good job I have an understanding and supportive family as they only get to use the table at Christmas when I force myself to take a break and pack everything away!

I'm inspired by things that I have a personal fondness for, particularly nature - many of my designs feature flowers, trees, birds and animals. As a land-locked Midlander, I have a long-felt yearning for the sea. I adore beach huts and these often pop up in my designs. Ever since I was very small I've loved Russian dolls and I love to feature them in my work. My logo picture is one of my original Russian doll appliqué designs from one of my early cushions. I also came up with the idea of making stacking pouch sets with Russian dolls on the front. The pouches stack inside each other just like the dolls. I love shabby chic and rustic styles and I use a lot of pretty floral-print fabrics in my work. Texture plays a big part in my designs and I often incorporate fabrics with textured patterns and surfaces. I like to use hessian to give a rustic touch. Many of my designs feature fabric appliqué motifs which I make myself. They are edged with machine embroidery using satin stitch or zig-zag stitch on a fairly basic sewing machine. The appliqué designs are often embellished with sequins, buttons or hand embroidery.

As well as selling through my Folksy shop, I also exhibit at craft fairs in and around the Midlands (I am based in South Derbyshire). I accept orders for commissioned pieces, as long as I feel that the request fits in with my style.

Designing and making is my passion and I hope that the items that I am inspired to create bring as much joy to others as they do to me.
