June Designer of the Month: Sticky Toffee Chic
Each month we will feature one of our amazing local designers. We will find out a little more about their creative process. This month we are featuring Angela and her beautifully sewn products and her small business; Sticky Toffee chic.
Hi, I’m Angela, owner of Sticky Toffee Chic. As well as being passionate about puddings, I also love to make fabric bags and accessories. I have been doing so since 2017 when friends urged me to start selling the colourful cosmetics bags I had begun to make. I started with local craft fairs and then was invited to have a section in All Original in 2018. I nervously said yes, but have loved every minute of being part of this wonderful shop (and community), ever since.
Whether it’s cacti, flowers, bicycles, pin up girls or French bull dogs on my bags, hairbands, washbags and totes, it’s always all about the fun – and the joy that colour brings. I love how certain colour combinations can make me feel! Amongst others, the artist, Matisse is probably my biggest inspiration, with his bold use of beautiful colours, shapes and themes.
Over the years I have honed my sewing skills first through my favourite lesson at school, Needlework, later through courses and Adult Education classes after my two children had left the nest. Making high quality products is very important to me and I continue to learn new skills all the time.
I am lucky to have a dedicated sewing room in my house in Ealing. In it you will find my Juki industrial sewing machine, a cutting out table, ironing station, fabric stash, a cup of tea on the mantlepiece and my little dog Tallulah asleep on her bed. Oh and my Bluetooth speaker for all the podcasts I listen to whilst sewing. It really is my happy place!
It is my philosophy to try to find a bit of joy in every day, and it is my hope that my bags and accessories will bring that joy to all their new owners!
