4 years ago, I left university with a degree in Costume design and Making. Since then I have worked on a range of theatrical productions and projects
and then Covid and lockdown hit, shutting down my latest project 2 days before opening night. Theatres closed and I suddenly had no work and felt a little lost. A saving grace was that I finally had time to do the personal projects I always wanted to. I started making myself clothes and home accessories, and after posting pictures these items on social media my friends and family started asking for items for themselves. This is where Sewphies – Reuse, Remake, Recycle was created, and since then the business has grown. I aim to use off cuts of old material, neglected duvet covers and curtains to create anything from my popular co-ord womenswear to cushions, baby mobiles and laptop cases. Every item I create is completely handmade with love and one of a kind.
