About Buttons, Beads and Blanket Stitch

Buttons, Beads and Blanket Stitch

Embroidery and Printmaking. Made by Hand with Love in the West Midlands.

I have always loved to create; whether as a teenager, when many an hour was spent making clothes on my mum's sewing machine, through to experimenting with painting, drawing and printmaking and ultimately gaining a Fine Art degree.

Fast forward through 10 hectic and rewarding years of Primary School teaching where, now at home with young children, I developed a creative itch!

My urge was to create smaller scale pieces; to try my hand at a more decorative stitching. My first project, back in 2007, was a pair of (at this stage, fairly basic) baby shoes. From there, my work developed and progressed to making and selling an ever growing selection of predominantly hand-stitched items.

As the name ‘Buttons, Beads and Blanket Stitch’ suggests, the vast majority of my pieces feature bead and/or button embellishments; I adore buttons and have tins and tins of them, just waiting to be given a new lease of life by combining with ribbons, fabrics old and new, and the simple beauty of a perfect blanket stitch.

Every piece I create is made entirely by hand, by me. I have a real passion for the handmade and take immense pride in my work and real joy in producing not only beautifully made pieces, but real one-offs. Other people’s work, of course, inspires me, but I take great care to give everything my own twist, starting by always creating my own templates so that from the very onset, the piece is entirely my own.

My work comprises hand-stitching and hand cut and burnished lino prints; the two areas often overlapping and combining.

I am frequently inspired by what I see around me, gathering ideas and pieces of interest to incorporate into a future project - armfuls of driftwood, pieces of clothing from charity shops to cut up for their fabrics… I am always delighted to receive commissions and pride myself on rising to the occasion, whatever the request!
