Crafty Cats


Lol Cat (made for my friend Paul) and BalooWhilst teacup pincushion have taken a backseat until I start selling some, my devil’s playthings have been eager to find something to take their place. Enter Crafty Cats. I started making Baloo (mog right) completely by accident one day, whilst messing around with scraps of an old jacket and remembered that I had bought some cat eyes for another project. I agree. he looks miserable, but don’t we all know cats like that? The type that gaze up at you like they haven’t been fed all week, but you slipped them a piece of cheese 20 minutes ago? Lol was my second and she was made as a gift for Paul. She is adorable and they sit between our computers at work.

Below is my latest and greatest, based on a real cat – Matt Damon (as owned and loved by my sweet pal Lee Parker). Lee is forever sending me lovely treats and I have been wanting to return the favour for a while, so here he is…

Have a Very Beret Christmas


Red Beret adoned by Kitten von Mew

Whilst recovering from my keyhole surgery, I decided to make something for myself for a change! I am a huge fan of berets, so took one out of my cupboard and set to work on decorating it. I have to say it was highly enjoyable and I was very pleased with the outcome! With pearl beads from a broken necklace and felt swallows, hearts and flowers, it has cheered up my headwear no end and looks great with my red coat! I will make some to sell if the prove popular!

Pincushion Corsages!


I have updated my Sew on and Sew Forth page with fabulous new images AND a new style! My Pincushion Corsages are the handiest pincushions for tailors and dress makers. Ideal for alterations at events, hemming dresses at home or in your shop, they are pretty and functional at the same time! The felt petals double up as needle book pages, whilst the centre of the flower is a pincushion with stamen dress pins included! The flower is attached to an elastic wrist strap and these corsages come in a wide variety of colourways including my special Coronation Corsage in red, white and blue!

At £15 each, these are 100% handmade, hand finished and great Christmas gifts. I will be selling them at vintage fair on 18th December and mail order by emailing kvm@email.com.
