Janice, Teddy and Sunny

Hello, my name is Janice and I love to make things.

I was born and raised in Hong Kong, and I now live in Perth, Western Australia (Whadjuk Noongar Boodja) with my husband and two dogs, Teddy and Sunny. 

I’m a Data Librarian by day, and a maker by night. I’m obsessed with sewing my own clothes. Since I pledged to not buy any clothes in 2018, I never looked back. I started knitting during the COVID lockdown and have not stopped. I’m fascinated by pottery, but it’s one thing I will never get very good at. I recently started learning how to draw digitally, making patterns from my own photos and sketches, and I hope to one day sew with and wear the fabrics that I designed myself. 

This blog is mainly for me to document things I made and to share the process of making them. You will see a lot of colourful things, but also the occasional neutral tone. Hope you enjoy your visit to my little creative sanctuary, I’d love you to get in touch if you like what you see here!
