Spotlight on Thirtyfive Flowers

Handmade lined bag

Louise Brainwood is the lady behind Thirtyfive Flowers. Living in Berkhamsted with her husband and two daughters, aged 12 and 15, she originally trained as a jeweller. Louise worked designing and making jewellery for about 15 years, selling worldwide. She also worked for a few years at a local Berkhamsted pre-school (and still does when needed!) but a couple of years ago she found she had to stay at home for a few months to care for one of her daughter's who was poorly. To keep Louise occupied she started sewing and then selling online through eBay. A year and a half later Louise's daughter is well and Thirtyfive Flowers is also going strong.

Louise makes all sorts of items including cushions and doorstops for the home plus purses and bags. She uses a mix of gorgeous fabrics including some vintage finds along with some Cath Kidston designs.

Louise especially loves appliqué work and will be bringing some new appliqué cushions to the Bumps, Babes and Beyond Fayre, as well as her best selling LOVE cushions. Gorgeous!

Louise is also happy to accept commissions for bunting and even cushions for nurseries.
