Meet the Northside Makers: Chuckles Designs

In the first of many blog posts, we will be showcasing the crafters that have a stall at our Northside Makers Market.

Chuckles Designs
is a homemade team making homemade stuff for homemade kids. The founders are sisters Jen Briggs and Sally Kingi, along with their lovely mum, Barbara Douglas.

Tell us about what you sell ...

Chuckles Designs sell stuffed fabric toys, sock toys, and baby blankets.

What inspires you?

We make a few designs from Melly and Me, and also Audrey and Maude . Otherwise, our buyers often make special requests and Etsy is a great place to get inspiration.

What's your favourite medium to work in?

Sewing socks and fabric is our thing.

What would you be lost without ....

Chuckles herself and my sewing machine.

What's your fave crafty read?

I love sock monkeys so this book is great inspiration.

What do you like to listen to when you craft?

My daughter, Charlie (aka: chuckles)

Whats up next for you on the craft front?

We are about to launch a clothing range for littlies and I'm currently experimenting with a sock frog.

Do you have any UFO's (unfinished objects),what are they?

Grandma chuckles is playing around with a stuffed pig and I am working on some specialty monkeys to join "Pirate Monkey"

Where else can people shop for your goodies?

Chuckles can be found at our brand new and first ever stockist, Mandrake and Willow, 66 Anderson St, Yarraville, VIC
