I am completely in love with this photo sent from a customer, of her bespoke Inky Donkey fabric in situ. This beautiful place is a 150 year old stone house on the Greek island of Tinos. Below the house was where the original occupants kept their transport - a donkey garage, now transformed into a breathtaking bedroom!

Hey cat people, did you know there's a magazine called Your Cat? Did you also know that they've featured my Inky Kitten tea towel? Pretty nice. I do now own a free sample of kitten food that I don't know what to do with though.
You asked so I got on with it - luxurious pure cotton Adult Aprons now available in our shop!
All Inky Animals along with my Leafy range, proudly made in the UK as usual. You can also opt to have a name or other phrase printed on the straps for no extra! Just add a note whilst ordering exactly as you'd like your text to appear. The perfect bespoke personalised gift.
Any other products you'd like to see? Just let me know!
Had a great time shooting (with a camera...) some ridiculously cute little monkeys modelling my new Inky Animal Aprons! Perfect for Summer Holiday mess making! Grown up sizes coming soon... Check out the full range here.
With fully customisable straps, you can give a truly personal gift that they'll love.
Bespoke Cushion Commission
I've just polished off a lovely bespoke cushion commission for Interior Designer Celia James. She picked her fabrics and sizes of choice and I made it happen.
Drop me a message if you have any bespoke hankerings.
The next Simple Screen Printing workshop will be on the 26th October, at The Banyan Tree in Brackley, Northants, and amazingly there are only a couple of places left! If you'd like to get involved, just drop me a message!
Bespoke Laptop Bag
A lovely lady got in touch to see if I could create a laptop bag out of KateMoby fabric... Some designing and international ordering later and, yes I can!
My most useful tool was a cereal packet "laptop" I made to match the size - it's nerve wracking making something to fit a specific object if you don't have said object in your possession!
The final design incorporated a button closure, zip front pocket, lining and padding, canvas and leather handles and a good sprinkling of Beech Leaves! Not a bad foray into construction. Personally I'm most chuffed how the button I made lines up with the pattern so nicely.
How I did it:

Pinterest Style Tutorials
A wee while ago, I wrote a screen print tutorial and a fabric label how-to to help out fellow crafters. In a brazen attempt for people to find me on the big wide world of the internet, I've created some "pinterest" style versions, pared down to be as simple as possible. Repin away!
New Products Ahoy!
A lovely lady mistook my hand-printed fabric buttons for earrings, which I thought was a jolly marvellous idea! So here is my tiny jewellery range, which you may have spied if you'd popped in to say hi at the Christmas markets last year. Always fun to design new packaging too!
So far available in sets grey, blue and birds in "Midnight" in the shop! Each set will have two large and two small pairs. The earrings are silver plated and nickel free, as are the rings.
Everyone likes things to match, so here are some rings, also available in the shop, so far in large (30mm button) and small (15mm button) birds in "Midnight!" The rings are adjustable and silver plated, and of course, hand printed.
