Welcome to the online home of Sewn Down Purple Lane. Thank you for stopping by… I hope you like what you see, and please get in touch if I can help any further – via the Etsy shop or Facebook page. All current in stock items can be found in the shop.

Here’s a little bit about me and the business. I’m Ruth, mum to four children (2011, 2012, 2017 twins), and I love sewing all sorts for little ones and grown ups – with an emphasis on items that are both gorgeous and practical. Everything you see on this website is 100% handmade by me. My work is heavily influenced by my passions for reusable products and carrying my children in slings. I’ve been sewing for as long as I can remember. Once my eldest two children came along I decided to leave employment outside the home and start a business doing something that I love to fit around the family – that’s when Sewn Down Purple Lane was born. Since then it has grown with various new products. Purple Lane is fictional, but based on where we live and where I sew: Bournville – the home of a famous chocolate factory.
