About Me


I’m Mona. I’m a psychology student by day and a crafter by night. I’ve made things with fabric ever since I was a child, and received a sewing machine from my family for my 18th birthday.  I make all sorts of things on the machine and also by hand – quilts, cushions, curtains, clothes and party decorations. While I make all kind of things, I generally go for bright colours so you might wanna grab a pair of shades before checking out any of my photos.

I live in lovely Oxford (lovely at this time of year anyway – punting and strawberries, what’s not to like?) with my boyfriend who’s probably quite sick of having to step over various sewing projects to get anywhere in our home. Ah well, he’ll survive.

Recently, I’ve become interested in not just the doing of craft, but thinking about some of the deeper questions/issues it raises. I like to consider domestic crafts in history, in literature and as part of the sociology of our everyday existence. My posts alternate between showing/describing things I’ve made, and trying to think more generally about the crafting renaissance of the last 5-10 years.

I write this blog because it’s good to share, and I’d love to hear people’s ideas and tips, as well as helping others to make some more of their own stuff. I really hope you enjoy looking at the website. Please subscribe to the email updates, and leave lots of comments. The more the merrier.
