I've always loved making things, and now create garments and accessories especially for babies and children.
Knowing how to knit, sew and make your own clothes is no longer a necessity.
In a world where you can update your wardrobe at any time, for little more than a few pounds, I think it's even more important not to forget the value of the handmade. Until I created Craftworks, my very supportive family have been the only recipients of my work, now I'm excited to be able to share what I make with other families.
I love simple designs, minimal fuss and muted tones, and most of the items I create follow this aesthetic. However, I am rather partial to a cool print from time to time.
You can find my creations over on my Etsy shop, which I update regularly. You can also connect with me over on my Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest accounts to find out more about me and Craftworks Baby.
I'm Lauren and I live in Reading with my husband and our rescue cat Bob, who spends the majority of his time in his basket looking at us with distain.
I've always been a maker - whether that's been scrapbooks or jewellery. I can't imagine not being busy with some project or other and all the items in my store are made with lots of love and care.
Now I focus on sewing and knitting too, and as well as making items for Craftworks Baby, I like to make and customise clothes for myself.
