Thank you for wanting to know more about me and my designs.
- I live in New Zealand and I have a family
My husband my son and my beautiful dog Lucca.
I love to craft, hang out with friends, renovate my house, travel whenever possible, enjoy life and occasionally cook!
I took up sewing to make things for my son, soon I was creating birthday presents for other children and friends. Then people started offering to pay me to make them designs.
In February 2011 "Adventures of Alex O & Co" started to come to life.
I took six months to work out what products I wanted to use and what I wanted to design and make.
I had my first market stall in July 2011 and I have never looked back.
I love to work with recycled blankets and wool felt.
When I first started all my applique was hand sewn (I was a real purist).
As I have got busier this has become impossible. So now I combine sewing machine and hand sewing to my applique.
I am drawn to detail but at the same time I love simple designs.
Therefore my work is a mixture of both.
I try to make all my creations beautiful to the eye.
