The Bobbin Case

Designer and maker of unique handmade bags and accessories

I am a designer and maker of handmade bags and accessories including purses, keyrings, home decor and gifts. I work mainly with vintage wool and Tweed, in particular Harris Tweed but also enjoy using other quality cloth.

I design all my own items, and generally don't use commercial patterns unless otherwise stated. I never make the same design in the same fabric twice so you can be sure you are getting a unique one of a kind piece.

I also work to commission creating a bespoke item, tailored to your requirements, please get in touch if this interests you.

It is all about the cloth for me, that is what inspires me so i try to keep my designs simple and appropriate to the fabric used. I particularly love natural earthy fabric and colours.

I work from home in my studio down the garden and work around being a mum to two girls. I enjoy a good strong cuppa and listening to 6Music whilst I work!

I've always been creative. My gran taught me to use a sewing machine at a young age which inspired me to start making clothes and hats for myself, family members and friends. I later pursued my love of art at A level and foundation level then moving onto a degree in Textile Design. Work experience is mainly in Millinery and library work after a break to raise my two children I am now discovering the job that I really enjoy!
