Meet the maker Charlotte Brown

Crafty Monster is a cross stitch homewares, gifts and design company. It is the brainchild of 27 year old me, Charlotte Brown. I have been cross stitching for nearly 20 years, ever since I could hold a needle. I come from a very creative background with a famous artist mum and photographer bro.

Crafty Monster was born in 2010 with the vision to re-design cross stitch. It was a way to combine my two loves of creating beautiful pieces for the home and quirky cross stitch.

The focus of Crafty Monster is on homewares and gifts. Think cushions with a nautical twist. Think quirky handstitched compact mirrors. Every piece has been made with the influences in my life such as where I live in London, the seaside, food and wine and nature. Not forgetting vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces.

There's nothing quite like what I do on the craft market. Most items are one-of-a-kind and all are made with high quality materials and with love.
