When most women prepare to have their first child, they think of all the sweet mummy things they can do for that
child, create a scrap book of their every move, buy them the best designer clothing, keep a baby journal, make their
baby food from scratch, sew little keepsake gifts…the list goes on.
But the problem with all those promises to yourself is that once the little bundle of joy is born, you barely have
enough energy to shower, never mind daily scrapbooking and sewing projects, no matter how crafty you are.
Lukily, for those that desire meaningful keepsake gifts for their child, but just don’t have the time to make them,
Chloë Owens is here with her contemporary textile practices used to create illustrations, books and cushions
using colourful hand-stitching, machine embroidery and fabric appliqués.
You can choose from pre crafted bunnies, owls, cushions and greeting cards, ready to be delivered at your
door in a few days, or, you can commission a piece for your petite poppet’s nursery and Owens will use her
bright colours, unusual style and versatile use of appliqués to create a piece that will always remind your
little one how much you love them, even if they do shove the pillow under their bed along with their
favourite teddy the day they turn 12.
