Claire Sounes Stitch

ClaireSounesWe always try to make our gift packages special so we thought of trying to make fabric hang tags. The ones pictured above were created by UK-based artist, Claire Sounes, who writes on her Etsy profile:

“I love designing and making items by hand. I like using traditional British fabrics especially Liberty Tana Lawn combined with linen and vintage buttons.”

You can purchase her designs here on Etsy under the brand, Clair Sounes Stitch and also here on Folksy under the shop name, Tokenhouse.
