I have a friend who is obsessed with Disney so I made her these three cushions as a gift. I’ve never used iron on motifs but I’m really pleased how they turned out. They are so cute



I currently have a shop on Etsy but I’m contemplating to have my own website. I’ve opened one up on Wix but I’m always hesitant to take that plunge in case I make the wrong decision. I need to upgrade to get my own domain name but I’m struggling which one to go for. Decisions Decisions

Where it all began

A few years ago I decided to take up a hobby, I had some spare time and wanted to do something that I really enjoyed doing.  I joined a sewing class and bought myself a sewing machine.  I had never made anything in my life so I put a lot of heart and sole into creating products for family and friends.  My business Cotton Dotty was created in 2012 and since then I have sold lots of cushions to customers.  I work full time in Learning and Development but one day my dream is to own my own business making cushions and bags for customers.  I think it is really important to have dreams.  Everybody has a talent and I didn’t find mine until I was 38.  I love sewing and making cushions, bags, lavender cushions.

I think of myself as a people person and I love to be creative, I also learn from people with different ideas.  M

Maybe next I will start on clothes!!!!!!!   Below are some of my items I have made for customers.

Follow your dreams and believe in yourself……….



Beautiful day

I’ve had a beautiful day walking with my dog, my husband and our friends and their dog. We did 6 miles along the canal watching the boats and we even saw some cows stood in the water cooling off. We called at the craft market where I bought some pink flamingo fabric and made the beautiful cushion I have now listed in my Etsy shop. Hope you all had a fabulous day xx
