Welcome to the Paisley Pedlar blog. My name is Gill (aka Paisley Pedlar) and I am an artist and maker. I am at my happiest when I am sitting in my studio looking out into my garden, watching the birds on the feeders and enjoying the flowers while I am drawing or stitching. I love drawing in all it’s forms from scribbly doodles to intricate tonal images and my own drawing takes many forms. My second great passion is sewing. I love making
handbags and clothes love the challenge turning a flat piece of fabric into a 3 dimensional object. I like to “have a go” at anything and have made clothes ranging
from evening dresses to casual summer tunics; but my favourites have got to 1950’s style summer dresses. Currently I am working on developing the skills to create hand printed fabrics from my own designs from which I can make one-off handbags and purses.
