Hello. I am Alix may I welcome you to Bigbluebed. Would like a cup of tea while you browse?

In my Bigbluebed shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/Bigbluebed you will find a large selection of handmade textile accessories, handcrafted Dorset buttons, as well as handmade flower clips and brooches.

I love to sew. It is something that I have done for years and now I am passing on my love and knowledge to my daughter, and also the children where I work.

I have about 5 sewing machines. The oldest in a 1915 Singer that trundles happily along sewing and singing as I wind the handle. If my arm aches too much I can always turn to my electric one. I also enjoy hand sewing and find it easier and more satisfying to sew by hand.

As many of my items are sewn by hand they may take a little bit longer to make. But with each stitch I put a lot of thought and care into the work.

Please ask if you would like me to make any custom items for you. I can make custom dorset buttons for your sewing, crafts, outfits or to decorate your accessories.

I design all my pieces myself. I often use nature as an inspiration as in my tweed flowers - where I went back to look at the actual formation of the flowers which is why each one is based on a real flower.

Fabric and colour also inspire me. Often I will put colours together or play with my fabrics and let them put ideas into my head.
