Beautiful Keepsakes and Gifts from
KEEPSAKES BY KATIE
I’ve always loved to sew. In my family we had knitters, but I was the sewing girl. Mum taught me how to cut out patterns, helped me make my own outfits and I have continued to work with fabric. I started on quilt making back in 2005 whilst living in New Zealand and from there I just started ‘to create’.
I have a wonderful ‘shed’ in the garden that looks out on to the River Cree and between the constant running of the river, the birds coming to their feeders and our small ‘wild flower’ garden I spend hours in there with scissors, fabrics and reading through my (large) selection of magazines and Pinterest ‘saves’. When not creating for family, friends and working on commissioned work, I really enjoy creating for up and coming fairs.
From quilts made from baby clothing (a wonderful hand-me-down for years to come). Wedding Dress quilts (daunting for most brides but so well worth having your wedding dress converted into a quilt as opposed to hanging in the back of the wardrobe – like mine did for nearly 30 years!) – and on our Anniversary, it has pride of place on our bed. Photograph cushions capturing a moment forever. Cushion covers made from jumpers, shirts or a dress worn by a loved one who passed. Little bears made from cherished clothes.
If it’ fabric, then I can create almost anything into a keepsake that you can hold onto forever.
