I have been a huge fan of the Little Foundry since it began in 2009, Carolyn (an old Uni friend) started to make beautiful gifts for family and friends while she was on maternity leave with her first child. Within no time at all her artwork got so popular that she was soon spending every spare moment stitching away in a flurry of fabric, ribbon and buttons!

She uses gorgeous vintage and modern fabrics, antique letterpress and perfect embellishment to create lovely pieces of framed artwork. The white wooden box frames set off each one beautifully and are locally sourced, as Carolyn believes in supporting small businesses like her own. Every piece of artwork is lovingly handmade and totally unique.

In addition to her bestselling Personalised Baby Name Print Frames for the home Carolyn has recently added a charming new product to the brand, Framed Applique Initials, which make the perfect present for new babies, birthdays, christenings and weddings.

If there's something special that you'd like created, just let The Little Foundry know, they are happy to take on even the most challenging projects and in fact they rather like doing things that are a little bit tricky! 

It's a tradition now for me to buy each one of my friends who has a new baby one of these frames, they are always so well received and are something to treasure forever.
