Smartie Jamieson never goes anywhere without his hat - just in case it rains. He's a super cool doggy detective inspired by The Adventures of Flub-a-dub and Smartie Jamieson; characters and stories created by my little girl for bedtime! The most important item in Smartie's wardrobe is his little black cotton beret - it must be worn at a slightly jaunty angle - if it's not perfectly positioned he won't leave the house 'til it is! To keep cosy he also has a lovely red felt scarf his friend Florence Fox made him for Christmas, and his 'lucky' white vest - it's never let him down yet! His fur is crocheted with a yarn recycled from old jeans and his extra large felt nose is perfect for sniffing out who dunnit! Smartie tells everyone he's 15.1cm tall (0.1cm taller than Dominic Donkey), but he's actually only 14cm tall! ! Smartie has two teeny tiny seed beads for eyes so may be unsuitable for small children.

I have a degree in Embroidered and Woven Textile Design from Glasgow School of Art and trained as a milliner after graduating. I have been making and creating since I was little girl, inspired by mum, who made everything from dolls house furnishings to the most horrific curtain material (a la Sound of Music) dresses for me. I still remind her! I’d be lost without a needle and thread and more recently without my crochet hook. After years of trying to persuade my Uncle Daniel to teach me, I finally taught myself with the help of YouTube, online tutorials and books. It’s a cliche I know, but I’m hooked. I have a head full of silly ideas just waiting on the perfect fabric or yarn to bring them to life. Finding the right materials has been known to take years but I strongly believe that if you’re going to make something you have to also love what you are making it with. I love what I do and if someone else happens to like it too, I’m a happy bunny x
