Something I was working on over the summer...

I had been commissioned to make two hanging pocket's, one for each twin as a 21st Birthday present. I really love working on commissions as they're something all together different, you are allowed a precious insight into someone else's childhood/life. I have to admit however, with this I did struggle to begin with, I think because I was making the pockets for twins and I was very conscious not to make them the same as often twins can be seen as a "unit" rather than individuals. With a lot of deliberation I think the end result did each girl justice.

If you have a special birthday or anniversary coming up and would like to discuss having a totally unique gift made then please do not hesitate to contact me at

What a lovely idea for a "significant" present. My dd is only just past 16, but I will certainly consider this when she approaches here eighteenth!
