Hello! My name is Sarah, and I am the designer and maker of everything you will find here at Sarah’s World. I live in Gloucestershire, England, with my husband and my two young children, and I am a maker of many things. I am a marmite lover, a scary movie hater, and I dream of building my own home someday.
I have always been a maker, and creativity has always been a part of my life. Ever since I was little I have been making clothes for my dolls, knitting myself scarves and hats, and chopping and changing my own clothes. I am like a fabric magpie gathering materials from here, there and everywhere as they catch my eye, and then bringing them together to make something new and beautiful.
I use vintage and re-purposed fabrics in most of my creations, and I love the unpredictability of the materials I use. I love being able to use patterns and textures that can’t be bought in a fabric shop, and I love knowing that the items I make from these special materials really are the only one of their kind. I source the fabrics I use from my own wardrobe, charity shop finds, car boot sales, eBay and donations from family and friends. I do sometimes buy new fabrics as well, when I find something really special. I am keen to support companies whose fabrics are ethically produced, environmentally friendly and traceable.
I love taking on commissions and helping people bring their design ideas to life, so if you would like something really unique made just for you, do get in touch and I will do my best to help. I am also happy to incorporate your own pre-loved clothing or special fabrics into a design, to make it even more personal.
Take a look at my Etsy shop to see what’s currently available, follow along on social media for a peek at what goes on behind the scenes, or come along to one of the events I will be at to say hello in person.
Thanks for stopping by!
