creativity for you and me

I've always had the urge to create - often because my family needs something that I can make more cheaply, more sustainably or with more love than it could be bought in a big store. Most often it's something useful, sometimes it's something unaccountably frivolous, but the drive to create just the right thing is always there.

I know that's how creativity is for many people, often fitted into the slivers of time that you can find between all the other "must dos" in your life. You know that making something yourself, or choosing handmade, means it can be exactly what you need, look exactly how you want and can give you untold pleasure day after day.

Little Conkers exists to help you get the most from your time and pennies, whether that's giving you the means to make something for yourself, or choosing a handmade item - for yourself or as a gift - as another way of spreading the joy of creativity.

My sewing and crochet patterns are specifically designed with the time-strapped and frugal in mind, requiring no superfluous equipment and including practical suggestions on how to up-cycle materials wherever possible.

Little Conkers is still evolving, but I'm loving this journey that takes me to new friends and customers all around the world every day.
