My name is Jess and I live in the UK with my long-term partner (happily unmarried for 15 years!) and our two children.
I learnt how to crochet a few years ago and instantly became addicted. I initially started making blankets but found I didn’t have the patience for them and would get bored and move onto something else so I started making smaller things instead.
Following on from that I discovered corner to corner crochet which I fell in love with, I started making designs then turning them into wall hangings. I am slowly writing them up and adding them to my Etsy shop.
A few months ago I discovered a craft called punch needle embroidery and again became obsessed. I have been working on some wall hangings that I will be selling in my Etsy shop soon and also working on kits / patterns. I also plan to write up some tutorials for people who want to know how to do it, what tools you need and where to find the right fabric. It’s still really hard to source all these things in the UK as punch needle doesn’t seem to be very well known here yet.
I am a big fan of bright colours, animals and skulls. I think this all comes across in my work! To follow what I have been working on you can find me on Instagram here – @discoslothdesigns – and find my Etsy shop here.
