Meet the maker Leanne Woods

Hi, my name is Leanne and you've found my little slice of Folksy here at Leanne Woods Designs. I am a full time designer/maker and life long crafter and call the creative and craft loving Ards Peninsula my home where I live with my husband, daughter, one very large guinea pig (always mistaken for a rabbit) and our slightly odd one eyed cat who thinks she's a dog.

I have a little studio in my home that sort of overlooks the water if I stand on a chair with my head out the window. I don't do that too often though.

I love to sew and enjoy sourcing (read - shopping for) local fabrics made in the UK although sometimes it's hard to resist the occasional yard or two from elsewhere. I make the things I enjoy most from bags and purses, through home-wares and decorations and, having a tech mad husband and daughter, gadget cases too.

I've been here on Folksy since March 2009, but you can also find me on;
and at my blog

Shop Policies


Payment on Folksy is currently via Paypal only, although you don't need a paypal account. When you reach the paypal log in page just click on "pay with credit or debit card" instead and your payment will be securely processed. If you're having any trouble paying (paypal in maintenance, that kind of thing) feel free to get in touch as soon as possible and I'll try and help or hold the item until a later date for you.

Payment can also be made by bank transfer (domestic and international) or cheque. If you wish to pay by either of these methods, simply add any items you would like to order to your basket and confirm your intention to buy as normal including either the words "bank transfer" or "cheque" in the message to seller, ignore the instructions to proceed to paypal and I will get in touch with the information you will need to send payment.

Items can be reserved for up to 7 days so feel free to ask. Any orders for which payment has not been received and for which I've received no communication regarding payment arrangements within 1 hour of order placement will be cancelled and returned to stock.


I guarantee to ship everything within two working days (usually much sooner), by Royal Mail first class post within the UK and by Airmail for overseas orders. If you require an order more quickly than this, please contact me at time of purchase. In these circumstances I will ship the item on the same working day (or in the event of orders placed after 4.00pm on the next available working day). Orders may also be shipped guaranteed next day delivery (UK only). Orders sent next day delivery will incur an additional charge which will be confirmed prior to shipment. Please ensure that all postage details provided during checkout or at the time of registration on Folksy are full and correct at the time of purchase. Items intended as gifts may be sent to the recipients address if requested at the time of purchase. Please note that any duties or taxes applied to parcels sent overseas are the responsibility of the customer.

Custom Orders

I am always willing to consider any customer orders. Please feel free to contact me with any ideas you have. The final cost and time taken to fill the order will be confirmed in advance. Please note that a 50% deposit is required in advance of starting custom orders to cover material costs, your statutory rights are not affected by this.


I always aim to please, although should you be unhappy with your order for any reason, please contact me and I will do my very best to rectify any issues. Orders may be returned, in their original packaging (where applicable) and condition within seven days for a full refund, less return p&p. Rarely do items go missing in the post, but if you think this may have happened (Royal Mail suggest waiting 14 days for delivery) please get in touch for a replacement product or in the event that your chosen fabric is out of stock and a suitable alternative isn't available, a full refund will be given.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions or queries via the message to seller facility or you can contact me at seethewoods (at) gmail (dot) com
