That dont impress me much


I got some lovely feedback over the Dalek piece of work I made a while back for a friends little boy and his new baby brother. I thought you might like to see the reaction it got.

All's fair......


So I've signed myself up to do my first show in November - The Designer Baby show in Berkshire. It's a terrifying thought but hopefully nice people will stop look awkwardly and move on and I'm sure I can tempt them with Turkish delight to put them under my spell.....still the whole thing is taking my mind off the fact that I want a bottle of Chanel Haute Chocolat nail polish.
I'm a self confessed Chanel nail polish addict, the top shelf of the fridge is full of my tiny bottles of treasure and I'm a sucker for a limited edition. Unlike Charlie and his golden ticket, my quest for the chocolate will never happen......I am indeed hard done by!

She's a Model......











The sun was shining today and I took the opportunity to get some new photos of the very lovely Scarlett to model for me. Without either of us trying, I think we came up trumps!
Both poodle Lily bags and Twittwoo bag are on Etsy now!

Are you being served....


I recently had an order from the lovely Emma Litten who has an Etsy shop and also what looks like a rather gorgeous real shop in Cornwall http://www.whitedollarts.com/ where you will see an equally gorgeous Tobyboo!

Push it real good.....


Let's talk about what to get for the girl who has not that much but you want to get something good.......I've never experienced it for myself only heard, that Jo (you know who you are) is prone to do the Salt 'n' Pepper routine when sandy (or near abouts) is drunk in excess.
I'm glad she liked it as much as I did making it for her.....happy birthday Jo.....

Love it? Hate it?


Well like the yummy goodness it's named after only you can be the judge.


I needed to come up with a slightly more masculine version of the cupcake name frame......boats? trains? rockets? why these end up in being for boys is anyones guess so decided to go for a foodie theme to tie in with the cupcake. I tried jelly (no) then rocket and FAB lollies (but quite honestly they looked phallic.....yes, I hear you say but that is boyish) ahem!
As you can imagine while spreading the brown stuff thinly on my toast, couldn't help but think how good the label would in applique with a name on and volia! Me thinks it does......

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie




So, my favourite commission so far has to be this - a friend asked for something special for a couple who are hugely into greyhounds - another chance to make a Hugaboo me thinks!

The Hugaboos are gorgeous baby blankets that have the most softest, dreamy fabric on one side and a Tobyboo applique hoopla on the other.

I hope that baby Imogen has this for years and years to come......more to the point I hope 'she' ends up in liking greyhounds!

I'm getting married in the morning.....


Of course I'm not! But if you know someone that does then you might be interested in making their day hoopla special with a Tobyboo. Here's the first wedding commission I've done and I hope that Tobyboo and weddings are a marriage made in appliqueland!

The Stork has Arrived.....


My very, very lovely new business cards are here, sorry calling cards! They're sooooo pretty! Enfin La Voila create the most beautiful and unusual ways to correspond. I'm over the moon with my new stork arrival cards, so much so that I never want to give them out.
