|Author Biography||Rebecca Peacock and Samantha Tickner graduated with first class degrees in illustration in 2005 where they then set up a creative studio, Firecatcher, producing illustration and design. They have developed a love of recycling and creating from found objects which spilled over into producing their own clothes and accessories. This book is a product of their search to create unique personalised items that not only look beautiful but are environmentally friendly and find a use for all those little scraps of fabric they have collected along the way.|
