simply sewing fresh ideas with fabric

New year, new handmade wardrobe! That’s our first stitching resolution for 2018 and we’ve got some amazing garments to keep us all on track.

Happy stitching to all.…

miss ella

Ella Goodwin's illustration style is a mixing pot of gloriously whimsical influences, ranging from fairytales, fantasy and sci-fi to the natural world – or, more specifically, wombats, cats and capybaras.
