About Elsie May and Bertha
Thank you for visiting Elsie May and Bertha my shop for all thingshandmade. Elsie May Hancock and Bertha Hodson were my two grandmothers and I've named my shop after them as a small homage to two important women in my life.
The first item I remember making was an embroidered place mat, made out of really large aida, in primary school, I've been making things ever since.
I use a lot of vintage fabric, buttons and lace, as well as new, so many of the items I make are unique and usually there's only one or two of each item made.
