Hello, my name is Alison Mills, welcome to my website.

I am an experienced soft goods designer, maker and product developer, working for the toy and general product industries. I fulfil a variety of roles for my commissioning clients, and according to their wishes I can create concepts or completed designs, carry out product development to final production, source fabrics, and make patterns and samples as required.

I design and make anything from fully dressed toys (Doctor Who, Everything’s Rosie, World Cup mascot 2010) to more unusual items such as the Horse Hoof boots.
I have appeared several times in The Apprentice (BBC1) as a supplier, making products for the teams for their weekly task.

I have worked with a variety of companies and on numerous brands, including the following:

World Cup mascot, Olympic mascot 2012, Mike the Knight, Everything’s Rosie, Raa Raa, Doctor Who, Cyberman, Dalek, Daniel Craig as James Bond, Harry Potter, Madagascar, I Love Pony, Animagics, HMAF, Victorious, Crayola, Harry Hill’s Knitted Character, Little Britain, Sindy Doll, Scooby Doo, Alberon, Pleasant Company, Spot the Dog and Buggy Boot.

Thanks for visiting!
