Handmade aprons and other items that are good quality and individual.

We will make anything out of fabric.

Our mission is to try and make everything bright, colourful and pretty. Just because something has to be functional doesn't mean it has to be dull and boring.

We are a small business that specialises in handmade vintage, retro, style aprons and other items that are good quality and individual.

Diane's grandma taught her to sew when she was young and it's something she has always loved. She went to Art College when she left school but concentrated on jewellery and went on to work in the trade for over 15 years. The sewing was put on the back burner although she always seemed to have a project of some sort or other on the go.

She was looking for a change of direction following an accident a few years ago when a friend asked her to make 6 “good old fashioned pinnys” for a themed tea room she ran. Our friend knew Diane loved sewing as she used to help out with the costumes for the local amateur dramatic society. She wanted something pretty but functional. The idea was born from there. Diane ran up the pinnys for her and got a fantastic response. We then bought some pretty fabrics and decided to have a go at making and selling them. This is when Duncan came in and came up with the idea of selling them online and Fabrique Creations was born. He runs that side of things totally as Diane is far happier sewing than typing.

We made a few different aprons and put them online and things grew from there. We decided to make practical things but wanted everything to be bright and pretty, just because its practical doesn't mean it has to be dull and boring. We noticed vintage items seemed to be much more “fun” especially from around the 40s and 50s. Our aim is to bring a bit of colour into everyday life.

We now have many personal and business customers and our handmade aprons and laptop bags have been featured in a popular TV series and a popular TV soap (see opposite) and several photo shoots. We also expanded the range to include patchwork quilts, hair accessories, cushion covers, beanbag covers and fabric jewellery.

In 2012, we decided to meet some of our customers and did our first show, Kustom  Kulture Blastoff, which was great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed it and we returned again in 2013 and 2014. We are also looking to keep expanding our range of products but want to keep the vintage feel to the things we make and are always on the lookout for new ideas. 2015 saw us open our workshop and showroom in Skegness where you are welcome to visit.

We are proud members of the Professional Crafters Guild
