Liquorice Allsorts

Who wears a liquorice allsorts printed cravat?

and who had an assignment on Alice in Wonderland for her first GCSE textiles project?

My lovely 13 year old daughter Tess

and this is what she produced!
The final piece had to be a corset..

isn't it fab?

she felted, machine embroidered, buttoned, appliqued,
painted and ate lots of Roses chocolates!

Didn't she do well?
I'm so proud of my girl.


  1. Wow, wow, wow, WOW! What a fab piece of kit.

    Does she do commissions?

    I'm absolutely BLOOMING speechless with admiration.

    Johnny Depp, liquorice allsorts, Roses choccies - I'm in heaven.

    Debs, you'd better look out, your position of sewing super-star is seriously under threat. LLX

  2. Wow that is incredible, your daughter definitely has a career in design! I love the texture of the sweets. Well done = a definite pass!

  3. That is a.m.a.z.i.n.g!!
    She has inherited your talent that's for sure. :0)

  4. Absolutely fabulous! Fun, whimsical, so creative!

  5. Tess has asked me to thank you all for your lovely comments. She is pretty talented, even if I say so myself!!

  6. Wow that's beautiful , you have a very talented daughter.

  7. This is absolutely brilliant, I love it so much. WOW! :)
