Welcome to Crafts by Katie, where I lovingly sew together your baby and loved ones clothes into beautiful keepsakes to treasure forever. I am based in Grantham, Lincolnshire but have sent quilts all over the UK. I have now made over 150 keepsakes including quilts, cushions, Christmas stockings, bunting and pillow cases, so your precious items are in good hands with me.
When I am not sewing my other crafty love is block printing. I have been creating my own designs to print since 2016 so they are well and truly tried and tested. My range includes bodysuits, sleep suits, muslins and bibs. Quality materials are really important to me so all are organic cotton or a bamboo and organic cotton mix.
HOW IT BEGAN
It all started in July 2016 when I created my friend a quilt with her two daughters clothes. I have always loved the process of quilting so this was a great way to channel what I love into my little business. Since then I have created over 150 keepsakes using baby and loved ones clothes.
When George arrived, I couldn't believe the amount of clothes he came with. We were gifted a lot from new and second hand, I of course couldn't resist buying some too. They piled up so quickly.
If we were to have another baby, I couldn't imagine them wearing George's favourites but I needed a way to keep the memories. I have made two baby clothes quilts, one double sided and four keepsake cushions with his clothes. I couldn't think of a better way of keeping his treasured clothes without them being stuffed in a box and forgotten about in the loft.
