About me

Location Leicester, Leicestershire, United Kingdom
Introduction Miss W has been making stuff since she was a wee babe and particularly enjoys upcycling and using available materials to make new stuff.Miss W is really more of an intuitive sewer/crafter and doesn't tend to read instructions but thankfully is also a terrible perfectionist so it all turns out fine in the end. Miss W doesn't particularly like to write and in fact spent most of her life avoiding doing so but is giving it a go now. Miss W loves to dress up and particularly likes the fashions of the early 20th century. Miss W's first language is Dutch although she lives in the UK. Miss W drinks a lot of coffee but only until noon. Miss W loves to get comments but if you want to use her content in any way then please make sure to credit and link back to her blog.
