About

Hi! I'm Lara, and I love to craft.

There's something so satisfying about using your hands to create something new, isn't there?

I live on the coast, just outside of Adelaide, South Australia, with my lovely husband Owen and our two dogs, Fey and Poe.

After spending a year living and working abroad, my husband and I returned to Adelaide. We were instantly confronted by the difficulty of finding a job and a health scare.

With so much free time on my hands I was able to spend quality time on my true passion: cross stitch. Cross stitching the designs of others, while fun, wasn't cutting it anymore. I had so many ideas and when I began to explore these ideas I found myself becoming more creative.

I decided to open my shop so that I can share my work, and hopefully inspire others to embrace their creativity. It also enables me to spend more time at home with my husband, and focus my time and energy on something I love doing.

I am inspired by nature, colour, pop culture, and humour. I think you will find my love of humour showing through the designs available in my shop. As my business expands you will find more designs here that speak to my other inspirations.

Take a look around. I hope you will find something in my shop that inspires and excites you. If you'd like to see more of my creative journey, please follow me on Instagram @laramakes

    Hi! I love all types of crafts. When I'm not crafting I love to spend time at home with my husband and dogs, with either a coffee or a wine in hand!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

I am open to creating a custom cross stitch or embroidery, or designing a custom pattern for you. Please contact me to discuss options.

Environmental Policy

I try my best to minimise my impact on the environment. Some of the ways I do that are:

- I will not include printed packing slips or receipts in physical orders, unless you specify that you would like one. Please let me know at the time of checkout.

- Where possible I will reuse packaging materials. This means that you might receive your order wrapped in pre-used tissue paper or bubble wrap. As such, the packaging might not always be perfect.

- As much as possible I use recycled paper.

- Many of my products are made using scrap materials from other projects. I will mark these clearly in the product descriptions.

I am always looking for more ways to be environmentally friendly. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
