The story began.............
It was time to make sense of them!
From the studio in the garden,
After many pots of tea, and sugar drops galore,
She flittered and fluttered her way to creating her first lovely gift!
It was the start of making ‘all things pretty’ and Love Amelie Design was born!
Every creation is lovingly handmade by Amelie,
Using a jumble of gorgeous fabrics,
The odd help from Nancy sewing machine,
And a dash of delightful buttons here and there,
The recipe makes for just utter loveliness!
Simply happiness and a love for crafts is at the heart of Love Amelie Design and we want others to share in the delights.

When ‘pretty’ thoughts were overflowing in Amelie’s head,
I met up with the fabulous lady behind the designs to find out more...
Q. What gave you the idea for your business?
A. I suppose I can thank my 'imagination' for the idea of Love Amelie Design! I am a dreamer and always have been since I was a little girl. I used to day dream about *magical* worlds where everything was so beautiful and pretty.....just what every little girl wishes for! I always wanted 'that world' to be a reality but realistically, it wasn't.
We all grow up learning how much bad there is in the world and are constantly reminded of it. This I hated, and it always brought me back to thinking of that place I used to dream about. And so really, this is where Love Amelie Design began.......I wanted to bring a bit of ‘goodness’ into people’s lives with fun and colour and make them smile! Love Amelie Design captures the essence of that *magical* world.
Q.What do you feel you have achieved so far, even in the early stages?
A.To think I began Love Amelie Design as a light hearted hobby 2 years ago, I would say I have achieved an awful lot since then. I have set up my own website so customers can view products, learn all about the business, and what I am personally about.
I have also moved into events, taking Love Amelie Design to the next level. I spend my time travelling round the country, exposing the range to people further a field at Vintage fairs/design events, whilst displaying my products in shops and promoting my label.
Q. Who inspired you?
I would say the good in the world has inspired me....that *magical* world I mentioned earlier and a huge love for all things pretty and vintage. This is what inspires me to make my Love Amelie designs. A constant inspiration for me is also my amazing family who I love so much and who have always helped and supported me.
Mum gave me a card years ago that said ‘give your dreams every chance’ and it is this that I tell myself time and time again!! It is too true.
Q.Where do you hope to see yourself and the business by the end of 2012?
At the end of 2012, I would like to be actively selling online, open a unit for Love Amelie design and have contracts with stockists. I would love to attend more events so that many people will be aware of what Love Amelie Design is all about. Onwards and upwards to rainbows!!
