New Home Folksy Friday

This weekend I will be visiting my Uncle's family at their brand new home. They have lived in France for quite a while now and are making the big move back to the UK this week. I can't wait to see them and I have been making a few little Alexia Claire specials for my little cousins' rooms to surprise them with! This week's Folksy Friday is inspired by having a new home, some beautiful cards I found whilst browsing. Enjoy!

Wedding decoration ideas

I recently sent off 40 hand printed and hand made fabric baskets to Chicago for a September wedding. Each basket had shimmery pale pink butterflies screen-printed, with a medium grey co-ordinating fabric. The colours were chosen by the bride. I am told they are going to be placed in each of the wedding guest rooms! I felt very privileged to be asked to contribute to such a special day in someone's life.

If you are interested in having my fabric baskets to your chosen colours for your wedding or occasion, please contact me at I will gladly talk ideas with you! 

Examples of my current ranges of fabric baskets can be found in my Etsy and Folksy shops or on my website. I hand-screen print and sew each basket my self, start to finish. 

Here are a couple of images of the finished baskets. I really enjoyed working with these colours, I can imagine the wedding will be a beautiful one!
