Welcome to Figaro's Fancies - all sorts of things for all sorts of reasons!

I make lovely things from felt and fabric and hope that other people like them too! I have been selling my creations at a local country market, where I have my own stall. I'm also a registered retailer for Starchild Shoes for babies, children and adults.

I have two children and love to sew when they have gone to bed, while I relax in front of the TV with a glass of wine! When I get the chance I like to use my sewing machine for larger projects, such as cushion covers and bags. I make things because I enjoy doing so, not to make a profit (though it always feels great when someone likes my stuff enough to buy it!). I take my little girl with me to the market on Fridays and we have a laugh with all the other market producers. Sometimes I also do local craft fairs at weekends.

I sell Starchild shoes because I passionately believe in the product and the company ethos they are simply fabulous as baby shoes or slippers for all ages even adults! Some of my creations compliment the Starchild designs, so you might find a bag to match your favourite shoes!

Thanks for looking, Kate

Things I like to make...
Bags, brooches, key rings, hair accessories, dressing up crowns, wall art, pin cushions, needle cases, tooth fairy pouches, napkin rings, aprons, peg bags, bookmarks, fridge magnets, Christmas decorations and lots more. So far my designs include cupcakes, teapots, owls, pigs, tortoises, flowers, butterflies, seahorses, Russian dolls, cars and trains. I use felt, fabric, buttons, beads, ribbons, rickrack and lace. I like to use recycled materials when I can, so many of my creations are unique or one-off.
