About CheeseBeforeBedtime

Sales 910
On Etsy since 2012

It all began with Cheese...

The story behind the name:
I find that most of my inspiration comes just before I fall asleep. Sometimes I can lie awake for hours with images or new ideas running through my mind. I wanted a shop name that reflected that crazy, inspiring time for me. I love the myth that eating cheese before bedtime gives you funny dreams. I also liked the fact that it was a memorable name and could grow with my shop if I decided to expand into different products.

How did I get into stitching?
I was the creative of the family – the baby of the family with her head constantly in an art project. My family recognised this so every Birthday, Christmas, Housewarming (I could go on!) they would request a piece of my art as a present. And that is how the stitching began… I was asked to make a piece of art for my sisters Birthday but wanted to do something a bit different. I had a light bulb moment (no doubt after eating cheesy pizza) and decided to stitch a picture and wrap it around a canvas. After a lot of hours and few all-nighters I got it done and thoroughly enjoyed the process. From there it grew into making some stitching’s of my own and experimenting with processes as I went.

What inspires me?
It’s hard to pull me away from inspiring fashion blogs, kids’ blogs, and online magazines. I also love hipster magazines and street fashion. I like to create unique handmade work that I would buy and that customers will cherish – the brighter the better!
