Alison was born in Bridlington on the East Yorkshire coast in 1970. She has always been influenced by the seaside, but does still doesn't like sand in her shoes or sandwiches.
Much of the fabric she uses is recycled, having started life as garments, soft furnishings or offcuts sourced from all over the country. She has had a needle and thread with her for as long as anyone can remember, and started making her dingledangledesigns bags when a few people saw her own bags and asked if she could make some for them.
Very often the size and style of the bag is suggested by the fabric used, and no two are identical.
She sells ready made bags at local craft fairs and makes bespoke bags to order. These can be designed to co-ordinate with different outfits, for work, casual or evening wear.
Other fabric items she makes include cushions, throws and decorative bunting.
Her handmade greetings cards are made from a mixture of her own photographs and embroidery.


Alison's bags have been on sale at the contemporary craft shop at Artlink, Princes Avenue, Hull.
