Meet the maker Helen Healey

I have a passion for fabrics and I love combining textures and colours to create something beautiful and yet functional. I really enjoy applique work and hand embroidery and these are featured in a lot of my designs. I'm inspired by things that I have a personal fondness for and many of my designs feature owls, Russian dolls and beach huts, which I love. My style generally leans towards shabby chic.

Pocketful Creations grew from a need for an outlet for my designs - my house was filling up with my creations! Many of my friends were complimenting my work and asking if they could buy items and I decided that selling my products would be a lovely way for them to be used and loved by other people.

As well as selling on Folksy, I also exhibit at craft fairs in and around the Midlands (I am based in South Derbyshire).

I hope that the products that I am inspired to create will bring as much joy to my customers as they bring to me whilst I am designing and making them.
