My main area of creativity is as a designer and maker of mascot costumes. Mainly I work for football clubs, such as Crystal Palace, Coventry City ,West Bromwich Albion and Leyton Orient, but I also produce costumes for advertising and promotion purposes.
For Craft fairs I produce 18” square fur fabric cushions with faces, - such as dogs, cats, owls, apes and monsters. I also make small furry shoulder bags with a similar range of faces on the front flap.
As a contrast, I knit “One of a Kind” collectable fairies in a variety of styles. I also knit hand warmers on similar colourful themes , each pair has a matching polymer clay bead bracelet.
Finally, I make cushions in the shape of curled up sleeping cats. These are aimed at people who cannot have a live pet in the house. They provide a presence in the room, and are designed to be stroked as I have ensured all the fur pile runs in the correct way around the cats.
