Can you share your top tips for new members:

When I was in hospital my Gra (Grandma) made me my very own clothes and mummy loved choosing boyish patterned fabric for me to wear. My biggest advice is to choose fabrics you would dress your baby in!

What are your favourite things to sew / craft?

Anything that lets me use my electric scissors and the sewing machine. I have a special switch which lets me control the power to both using a head switch on my wheelchair and I love the noise. You can check me and mum sewing in this youtube video sorry about all the laughing!
