Kims Colourway

Hello there, I am Kim from Kims Colourway. I love to crochet and have been doing it for about 4 years now. I started my own business soon after that. I make a variety of items which are mostly custom made.

Kims Colourway - Letter Pillows

I have recently started making bags with a cotton lining. I love the granny stitch bags I have made which you can see on my Facebook page along with so many other items I have made in the past.

Kims Colourway - Jubilee

For the giveaway this month, I have made this Jubilee inspired bag using both my crocheting and sewing skills. Each square was crocheted in blue, red and white, sewed together then I have sewed the London inspired cotton lining using my sewing machine.

I love the name bunting, its great for people with slightly unusual names who can't buy personalised stuff. I can't get my daughters name on stuff in shops so she would love this :-D

Hi, my favourite item is the rosette top and matching bag, in red, white and pink.

But I must admit I like everything that Kim makes, and having had some of her pieces in the past, I KNOW how well made they are.
