Featured Seller

Today I am featuring fellow UK seller on Etsy, BigBlueBed

What is your name/business name?
My name is Alix, and I am Bigbluebed

What is your craft?
Mostly sewing - I make brooches, and purses - lots of accessories. I also knit. And I make Dorset buttons which are kind of sewn..well I use a needle and thread.

How long have you been crafting for?
I have been making Dorset buttons for about 2 years. I have been sewing and knitting since a child.

What is your most favourite thing about your craft?
I love the act of creating : having the materials and making something out of them.

And your least favourite?
I do not like when the child demands your attention and you are torn between the two.

Where do you get your inspiration?
Probably form the materials itself. For instance if it is fabric I like to hold it and look at it and an idea will pop in my head. Or I will be walking to work and I think of something and try and work out how I will make it.

Where do you sell your work?
On Etsy and Folksy
