Summer essentials

 I designed these two prints for a collection called Pool Party for Makower UK. They look great as little zipper purses - the perfect summer essential and great for keeping everything safe pool-side.


The iced lolly purse comes on a vibrant pink background and is great as a cosmetic bag.


Multi colour ice creams mix with tempting lollies.


Each purse is lightly padded and perfect for using as a gadget pouch. This parrot purse would be great to use as a pencil case. 


Brightly coloured parrots mix with luscious foliage on a vibrant green background.


The perfect pairing!

She sells seashells

 My seashell design looks great as a wallpaper print! I paired it with a deep blue sofa and it looks so inviting. It would be the perfect print for a beach house vibe.


There is a great selection of wallpaper options in my Spoonflower shop, from prepasted removable smooth wallpaper to a lovely textured grasscloth wallpaper.

Coral decor

 I recently designed this coral print for my Spoonflower shop. I've combined pretty coral shapes with delicate seaweed and have included shoals of mini fish swimming amongst them.


The navy background brings out the brilliance of the coral colours and would look great as a lampshade on this stunning Graham and Greene lamp.


The cream background is light and fresh and would look great in a beach house.


This lamp base from Two's Company looks great with it. and it sits perfectly against the light  coral wall.


Both these prints can be found in my Spoonflower shop on a variety of fabrics or as ready-made items, from cushions and throws to wallpaper and hangings.

Japanese obi clutch bag

 The obi is the 'belt' that goes around the kimono and they often come in brightly woven fabrics with bold design motifs. Their sturdy fabric and stunning designs mean they are perfect for making into clutch bags.


This clutch bag is made from a beautiful woven red and pink obi fabric with a stork motif.


It's perfect for using as a clutch bag or evening purse.


Look up close and you will see the detail included and the combination of stork motif with traditional Japanese geometric designs.


The bag is fully lined with a red cotton lining and has a matching pink tassel on the zipper pull.

Sewing Love

 This week's Spoonflower design challenge is called 'Home Hobbies'. My home hobby and my work both involve sewing and so I naturally had to do a sewing design for this challenge. I fell very lucky to work at something that I also enjoy.

In this design I've used a colour palette of red, orange, blue and pink and have included sewing items such as scissors, thread and pins as well as the obligatory mug of tea and a few biscuits to keep me going.


This design could be used for home accessories such as cushion covers or a tablecloth, or you could go really bold and use it as a wallpaper print in your sewing room.

Summer style

 The weather is slowly warming up and it's the perfect time to start planning your summer style. I created this bright outfit to compliment the red cotton kimono clutch bag in my Etsy store. The yellow of the skirt and blue of the top were picked out from accent colours in the bag.

Urban garden

It aims to spark awareness about environmental subjects, with a different theme each week. This week's prompt is 'Urban Garden' and I decided to create a selection of gardening items from wellies and trowels to seed packets and vegetables.


This print makes a nice match with my vegetable print.

Red lips

 I often participate in drawing challenges set by some amazing illustrators. It's a great way to challenge my creativity and try something new. Today's prompt for @thetuesdaycollective is 'Red Lips' and I created this funky 1980s Debbie Harry-inspired woman with a choppy peroxide blonde bob and a cheeky glint in her eye. I've also created a version with black hair. Which one do you prefer?!
