Hello, I am Laura and creator of custom made crochet baby items at Loralou’s Booteeque.
I am Mum to two children, and also work as a part time Optometrist in my spare time 😉
My passion in life is crochet. I love nothing more than to create baby sized crochet shoes, hats and headbands from one single piece of yarn. My Mum taught me to knit whilst I was pregnant with my first child and whilst I enjoyed knitting, when I found crochet a few months later I was ‘hooked’, I also was pleased to be free of pattern dependency, as I enjoy creating my own crochet designs and patterns when I have a vision in my head of how something should look. My Mum was also pleased she was still needed for knitting projects.
People are often unsure of what to purchase a newborn baby, a custom made hat and bootie set fits the bill perfectly. A unique gift that is lovingly chosen and handmade especially for its intended bundle of joy.
I also love to take photographs and document. One of the things I did with my daughter was to take a photo of her on the same day each month. It was fascinating to see her change with time and a wonderful keep sake to look back on as they grow so quickly!
The 1 year letters/numbers project (made of foam) is available to buy via my facebook page, Loralou’s Booteeque. It comes complete with a little organza bag to keep them in and is available in any colour scheme you would like.
Please do not hesitate to pop over to my page for more information, pictures and prices.
