This week I have launched a new collection in my online store
is a gorgeous range of handmade items created by the lovely Louise.
I am really excited to be able to sell her lovely items and also help support another Mum with her business.
I asked Louise to share a little about herself and what she does.
Hi! My name is Louise and some of my favourite things in this world is my family, sewing and giving and receiving gifts. This is how Stitched Up With Buttons was created. I started sewing and making handmade gifts for friends of mine, when they started having babies. I, like a lot of others, wanted to give a practical, beautiful and meaningful present that was not commercially made and environmentally friendly, but there was not much out there. I created Stitched Up With Buttons and have been making baby quilts for about 7 years.
I hand make a variety of baby gifts, including outfits and flash books but I specialise in baby quilts. All my baby quilts are unique; no one quilt is the same.
All quilts are 100% cotton, using Cosy Cotton wadding and all new fabric. My quilts and gifts are made in a clean, smoke free home. All my gifts are made from high quality materials and are made to last, because as a mum, I know how ‘loved and used’ my gifts can be, so I want them to last and to be able to the thrown in the wash when they need.
When I am not sewing I am a mother of one gorgeous son, Tom, who was born in January 2012, and work part time in the public service in Canberra.
I use the quilt I made for Tom everyday as a play mat. I am able to put him on the mat on the floor and I not have to worry about dribble, throw up or ‘accidents’ getting onto the carpet. If it gets grubby, then I just throw it in the wash and it is as good as new.
I love sharing my passion for sewing and all things beautiful with others, and after many people asking where they can buy my creations, I am proud to put my quilts and gifts on Nellie’s website selling beautiful things. I hope you enjoy my creations just as much as I love to make them!
I hope you love Louise's work as much as I do, these gorgeous quilts would make a really special gift for any new babies in your life. You can find out more about each one over in my store.
