About Me

Hi! My name is Rachel and I'm from Hull, UK. I love receiving letters and surprises in the post, It's sad that its becoming a dying tradition.

Follow me on Instagram: @peachpandastudio And like my fb page!: Peach Panda Studio.

I've been a swapbot memeber for a good few years now but I took a little break for a number of reasons, including uni. I'm a full time student studying BA Hons Textiles and my only income comes from my little illustration business, Peach Panda Studio.

Favorite Books

The Harry Potter series, any craft book or magazine, The Casual Vacancy, Biographies, anything by Enid Blyton, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. I am open to any suggestions! I love fantasy and detective stories etc.

Currently reading: Career of Evil, by Robert Galbraith.

On the to read list:

GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso The Secret Lives of Colour by Kassia St Clair Living with Plants by Sophie Lee The Descent of Man by Grayson Perry Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman

Favorite Television

Friends is my absolute favourite show even though it's been finished for so long... :(

I love GirlBoss, Master of None, Gilmore Girls, Breaking Bad, Luther, Call the Midwife, Line of Duty, Orphan Black, Poldark, Gavin and Stacey, Miranda, Game of Thrones, OITNB, Supernatural, Elementary..

Favorite Crafts

My favourites are sewing and crochet. I don't sew big things like clothes or quilts, I like to make smaller items such as home decor and christmas ornamnets, as well as hair bows, keyrings and general fandom inspired accessories. Also cross stitch or crochet are things I love to do.

I also love doodling, have a look in my etsy shop!

Favorite Movies

Love Lotr and the Hobbit, Harry Potter, The nightmare before Christmas, Nativity!, basically any christmas film, comedies, anything with Bill Nighy, all the Disney films! Especially princess ones and ones with great soundtracks like Lilo and Stitch.


I love anything cute, kawaii, Disney, vintage, handmade, nature and trees or anything generally crafty.

  • I also like basically any foods!
  • Favourite colours are the bright ones! Generally blues and greens.
  • Christmas is my favourite time of year!
  • Tbh I like pretty much anything colourful, I love handmade and I have a growing washi tape and sticker collection that I would love to expand, and have a pretty large fabric stash too:')
  • If sending socks or stuff like that I'm UK size7/8, big feet I know;)

Also, I think tortoises are adorable.

Would love to recieve:

  • Absolutely anything from Paperchase, it's my favourite place!

  • Craft supplies such as felt. fabric. sewing supplies, buttons, ribbon etc.

  • Anything Disney

  • Love getting sweets and similar things from foreign countries

  • Anything kawaii

  • Washi tape

  • Any unused stationary

  • Wool

  • Mini craft kits, any of my listed favourite crafts are fine

  • Love cacti and succulents so anything themed around that is always appreciated.

  • Trinkets from your country!

  • I'm currently collecting Observer books, patches and pins.

Link to my Etsy favourites is at the top of this page! Most of my Etsy favourites are from UK shops,but if you're international I'm sure you'll be able to find similar items in your own country.


I don't like:

  • Hot drinks

  • Dogs

  • Anything overly girly, not too keen on too much pink

  • Flakers!

  • Religious postcards/images etc

  • Don't really wear jewelry, except maybe the odd bracelet

That's it!
