Growing up in the country in Australia, oftentimes my only friend was a sewing machine. I was taught to sew by my dad, a leather craftsman who hand made leather belts from home. When I moved to LA, I fell in love with the decor of the city and my passion quickly turned from clothes and accessories to homeware. I was so inspired to decorate my own home, it wasn't long before I turned to my trusty sewing machine to embark on making chair pads, pillows, quilts and curtains. After receiving compliments from friends, I received a request for an IKEA Poang slipcover. I love a challenge and to my surprise, it turned out great! I decided to put my designs online and discovered a niche for customising IKEA furniture.
I am proud to support DOLLIES MAKING A DIFFERENCE, a local charity that distributes handmade dolls to children in need around the world. I am very happy to donate fabric to this wonderful organization every year. More info: http://dolliesmakingadifference.org
