#3000chairs


Here is my piece for #3000chairs to highlight the plight of refugee children. The chair is a "symbol of the welcome and kindness we would like to see extended to the refugee children who have suffered so much". There will be a fundraising event at Foyles Bookshop on 13th September, hosted by Walker Books and Help Refugees, with author Nicola Davies and illustrator Rebecca Cobb.

You can read Nicola Davies' heartbreaking and powerful poem, and how it came about here.

Beach boys

A lovely commission piece I worked on recently for our friends The Coopers, of their super-dooper lovely boys on Hunstanton beach :)

Train I ride ♪





All aboard! 
It's taken me over 3 years but I have finally got round to updating our family train illustration by adding the little one, toot toooooot!

You can see the original one from over 5 years ago here.

Fire balls and Sprouts


My lovely friend gave me an enormous bag of dried peas recently, for making bean bags. There's so much of it I'll be sewing bean bags for every occasion for the next 10 years!! 

Coming up soon is our boy and his friend Tom's joint birthday party, so I have been sewing some Super Mario themed bean bags. Lots of fun :)

FEED ME!




I've been having fun making these things for a lovely community event which is happening this weekend. The mouse and the shark will be attached to a wooden stand, and there will be a bucket of fish and plate of cheese (sewn by me, stuffed by me and the little one) to throw into their hungry mouths!

I hope the kids (big and small) enjoy feeding the hungry beasts!

The Mighty Cucumber Suit




The Cucumber Suit - the littlest's invention for a certain computer game. "It rolls down to squish people and bomp them out of the way" apparently :)

(You can see a little GIF I made over on my Facebook or Instagram page.)
