Personalised with love and skill

Handmade Crafts

by Kelly Louise

Treat yourself or someone special

I am passionate about personalisation, and when it comes to giving gifts, I believe that bespoke is best.

Show someone how much you care and love them by commissioning a one-of-a-kind item from one of the many techniques you will find in my galleries. You can provide a photograph of them to be transformed into a free-motion embroidery piece, tell me what activities, places or foods they like for an appliqué creation or simply explain their colour preferences for jewellery or string art items.

Browse the galleries for inspiration and contact me to discuss your individual request.
Remember, it’s also OK to treat yourself every so often too!
