Designer Spotlight- Big Blue Bed

Alix loves working with different fabrics and yarns to create stunning purses, bags, buttons and hair accessories.

‘Fabrics and yarn talk to me. I love to hold them and feel it and imagine what it could be. I love colour and texture. So most of my items are colourful. ’

Alix also enjoys knitting. She has a pretty range of scarfs and cuffs. Colour is a big influence in Alix’s designs with bright coloured wools, yarns, fabrics.

Waiting for We Make Christmas?
Alix is currently working on a new and exciting project., Dorset Buttons.
‘These are a traditional button that was made before the Industrial revolution. It is a beautiful button that can be any colour and used to decorate many items or just as a button.’

Alix sells these by themselves, in sets, attached to snap clips and also bobby pins. They take quite a bit of work but Alix loves the tiny stitches that are needed to make them.

Alix is also working on some new matching bags and purses.
