I was in France last week and while I was there we visited a really interesting little shop. It collects left over items from factories and sells them on at ridiculously low prices. I want to find something like this in London! I bought all of this for less than €5...

I spent the day drafting a pattern and used my finds to make a pair of knickers. I have never made anything like this before and although there was lots of swearing and unpicking I enjoyed it a lot. The pair I made were a little small so I will be reworking the pattern and definitely trying it out again.

This (unworn!) pair can be bought in my etsy shop

Etsy Shop

I've been meaning to start selling stuff properly for quite some while. Last night a name for my 'shop' finally came to me and today I have made an etsy shop where I'll start selling stuff. I hoping to set up a stall in East London sometime soon, when I've made enough stock.

I wanted to sell stuff that had some sort of common link. I really enjoy working with found items or recycled materials and my inspiration comes from trying to make them usable again and also prettier. Hence the shop name...

Here's the link, I will hopefully be adding more items in the next few weeks:
