Now let's discover Louisa and her creations
What is the first creative memory you have?
Watching films and cross stitching with my mum when I was a little girl.
What or whom began your creative journey on Etsy?
My biggest inspiration has to be my mum, she’s always supporting me and keeps me going, she suggested I started to sell my work back in 2009 then I came across Etsy and that’s where it began!
How did you come up with your shop name?
At the time I set up my shop, I had another hobby – bird watching and obsessing over my new SLR camera, I used to go and take hundreds of photos of birds at nature reserves, which is where the ‘bird’ came from and the ‘loopy’ refers to the loops made by the stitches when I am sewing, crocheting and knitting. Also the Loopy part of my name describes my personality - forgot to mention that!
Describe what creations you have in your shop
I sell handmade hair accessories using bright and colourful fabrics and buttons, I also crochet flower headbands and brooches. But in the future you may see something very different from me!
What inspires you?
Anything bright and colourful, I have taken to using Pinterest for inspiration.
What do you listen to or watch while creating?
Harry Potter! They put me in the zone, and once I start, I cannot stop!

It involves a good Yorkshire Tea Bag, 1 teaspoon of sugar, some boiling water and a little semi-skimmed milk! Yes, a good cuppa! - My all time favourite recipe!
