We were excited to catch up with Trish from Moody Cow Designs. Her crafting skills are diverse and she is always coming up with new ideas!
When did you start crafting & what do you make?
I have always crafted, from a young age I knitted and made my own clothes, even entered village shows where I lived, with knitted items, baskets I had woven, cakes I had baked, I remember very clearly making toys for a Brownie badge! I taught myself to crochet when I was about 11,my 1st piece was in neon green and was supposed to be a square but ended up as a triangle!!!! I still love to crochet now, blankets, cushions and mandalas. I do love to sew, currently making cutlery wraps, emery board covers, needlebooks, tea bag wallets, cushion covers and eye glass cases to name but a few!
What has been your proudest moment to date?
Knowing there are items I have made being used and loved in many corners of the world.
Have you diversified since you started out?
Oh yes! Started out making handbags from linen sofa fabric samples ( I used to work in a shop selling furniture and didn’t like throwing away the samples at the end of the season so started making bags out of them) I also made jewellery and bag charms.
What do you do to relax/hobbies?
Sewing and Crochet are my hobbies as well as my business, but I also love going to hear live music, love reading, and going away in Miss Daisy our T25 campervan.
What is your favourite cake?
Coffee and Walnut every time! (yum!)
