How Pipcicle came about
Thank you for stopping by Pipcicle.
After having my first child, Pip, I started to dabble in creating bits and bobs using my sewing machine. I found I had lots of lovely fabrics that had a small lifetime unless I could use them for something else.
Pip is the name of my little girl who inspired me to take up a new hobby, sewing. Using Pip's outgrown wardrobe and I decided to make some memory pieces. Pipcicle was born! Then Bubs arrived and I had a whole rainbow of colours to explore. Then I started to create personal gifts for close friends and family and Pipcicle has grown from there.
'-cycle' as every fabric I use is up-cycled. I never buy new fabric and I love a browse in a charity shop. All fabric is cleaned, steamed and pressed and then turned into something new.
I create bespoke home-sewn creations mainly using freehand machine embroidery and appliqué. In particular I like to make something personalised and unique to the recipient especially when it utilises a special fabric to them.
