Now, it goes without saying that my products are the result of bags of research, fabulous fabric, nothing but perfectionist sewing and a smoking sewing machine. However, if you don’t believe me perhaps you’d like to hear from my chuffed customers instead (although the top comment isn’t from a chuffed customer at all. It’s from a broadsheet columnist annoyed at me taking him to task for his bleating snobbishness). You can check out the five star reviews over at my Facebook page too, if you like.

Someone who makes novelty doileys (sic).” Giles Coren, The Times

I got some washable facial pads from Kraken Kreations and, as per request, I received only rainbow ones, and a pencil patterned one. I absolutely love these little gems! They’re soft, wash really well and actually take my makeup off without a fight. Thanks again Cath!” Sinead

I recently bought cotton sanitary pads in a liquorice allsort style fabric. It allowed me to open dialogue with my nine year old about puberty and periods. We’ve spoken about it before but she has now asked me practical questions and even what other prints the pads come it. It’s really helped to demystify the issue for her.” Sarah

My custom made bag with the velcro straps to attach it to my wheelchair handle is a godsend! Even though I gave Cath at Kraken Kreations such vague ideas she interpreted them perfectly: from my brain to a sturdy lightweight bag that is big enough for everything but not heavy. Everyone loves the peacock feather fabric she used too. Also, my friend was deeply chuffed by her bundles of strength and courage. You’re a game changer Ms Kraken!” Andrea

I never saw the things I commissioned from Kraken Kreations because Cath was awesome and let me order as a random act of kindness for someone online. She went all secret squirrel and sent lovely makeup remover pads to her. I’m a long time Kraken Kreations admirer!” Charlotte

My cotton sanitary pads from Kraken Kreations have changed my periods for the better. Cotton breathes so I feel so much cleaner on my period now. The blood is absorbed so it doesn’t flatten out around on top and spill over the sides. When I’m at work I don’t need to change my towel every hour and so far I’ve had three periods at work with no leaking. I also love the materials I chose so much I do a happy “squee’” when I take them out of my drawer!” Charlie

I purchased two bundles from Kraken Kreations when I started chemotherapy for breast cancer. They came with me for every round, and when I was going through a really bad time with it they gave me a huge boost. When I finished chemo, I sent one to a woman who was just starting her journey and I’ve kept the ‘Kick Ass’ one to help me through the remainder of my own journey. I love them to bits, they are beautifully made and I won’t be parting with my remaining one. Huge thanks to Cath for her beautiful work and phrases!” Chris

My hospital bag is unique and professionally made! It has pockets for things like my colouring books and pencils, my sleep mask and my writing pad, envelopes and personal organiser. The main part of the bag will contain nighties and my toilet bag and once I’m through my transplant it’ll be perfect for trips to see friends and family.” Lainy

I’ve bought two slouch bags from Kraken Kreations, both made to my very exacting specifications, with added pockets and pouches. I also commissioned a pouch to hold things like my phone which neatly pops into my bag. As well as that I’ve bought a travelling case for my crochet accoutrements, a handstitched embroidery hoop that brightens my living space and a sweary hoop that made my friend howl with laughter (and her mum scowl in glorious disapproval). So many beautiful things!” Donna

Had a cross stitch piece made by Kraken Kreations – it’s absolutely gorgeous! Exactly what I wanted, totally fair price for the superb quality and made/shipped promptly. Cannot praise high enough! Any handmade stuff you should definitely consider her.” Hawke, London

Cath I’ve just taken delivery of my goodies! I LOVE them!!! Thank you thank you thank you!! Seriously they are gorgeous – you are a talented lady (and the square purple button totally rocks with the awesome print btw!).” Emma, Reading

It’s really beautiful: first off, my idea was to have it in my living room, then last week I thought it’d make the perfect birthday gift for my cousin but then when I saw it, I had to keep it! I hung it immediately, all the way across the top of the French doors from the living room out to the garden: it really frames it well!” Sarah, Chepstow

Kay is going to love the pooch pouch! To find that you put so much effort in and get the pouch done was a lovely surprise! Kay is going to LOVE it – and I’m sure Jackie the dog will look lovely in her matching bandana. I can’t wait to give it to her!” Allie, Manchester

Bloody hell, Cath. You’re really good at this. Have you thought about selling what you make?” Irene, my mam, from just up the road.

And the fabrics you use for your textile workings of genious are positively glorious! Soon you will be a household name and worriedly, may be featured in the home section of the Daily Mail.

    Wow, wow and thrice wow! My parcel arrived today and I am so delighted with the quality and creativity. My faves are the flying pig cushion cover and the storage pockets, but everything is brilliant and the recipients of these presents will be really pleased. I’ll be back for more 🙂 🙂

    ….and gotta say thanks for the wee stripey storage pockets I ordered, too. I am using them hung up by my desk for pens, scissors, tape and so on. They look rather smart and as ever they are beautifully made 🙂
