Handmade Gifts and Wedding Decor with Mollycat Craft Co.
Here at the blog, we are big fans of handmade gifts and wedding decor! We spoke to Liverpool maker Jules from Mollycat Craft Co. to find out more about her gorgeous handmade items…
1.Tell us a little bit about you and your business
I’ve been running Mollycat Craft Co since September 2015. Everything I sell is designed and made by me and the majority of my products are made to order. I make personalised greetings cards, embroidery hoop art and bunting. You can find my shop on Etsy.
2.You have so many lovely crafty things on your Etsy, what would you recommend to someone looking to buy a wedding gift?
Thank you! I don’t think you can go wrong with one of my personalised embroidery hoops. It makes a lovely keepsake for the bride and groom and I can make it in any colour which means it can be made to match the wedding colour scheme.Beautiful handmade wedding gifts and decor...check it out!

3.We love your crochet wedding cake topper, what’s your favourite wedding related item to make?
It’s so hard to choose just one! I love to make the crochet bridal bouquet with buttonholes/ brooches and flower girl hair vines to match but if I had to choose just one, I’d have to go with the colourful heart brooch favours. A good friend of mine recently commissioned me to make something bright and sparkly for each one of her guests, so I created a rainbow of heart brooches, each with a sparkly back which fitted in perfectly with her ‘rainbows and sparkles’ themed wedding.
4.You make so many things that aren’t wedding related, tell us a little about what else you make.
A lot of the products I sell started off as a customer commission or as a gift I have designed and made for family and friends. Alongside my wedding related products, I make greetings cards for most occasions, each card features a little crochet heart. I also make personalised bunting, Bright Pom Pom wreaths and recycled T-Shirt yarn jewellery.
5.Do you have any tips for someone looking to have the crafty look to their wedding decor?
I made pretty much all the wedding decor for my wedding in 2014. First of all, get researching – Pinterest is a great source of inspiration. Once you’ve decided what you want to make, don’t be afraid to ask for help, you’ll find friends and family more than happy to chip in. Make lists and start making as early on as possible, don’t underestimate the length of time it will take to create your wedding decor.
