Hello, I am Irene Israel
I am the designer behind Handmadepast! I life in an old monument datring from 1760. I life 7 km from the sea in The Netherlands. In the little cottage I have a lovely tiny studio, whit a real "bedstee" . I love knitting and it is an absolute passion of mine. I started at an early age. But also have a passion for quilting, embroidery and crochet.
The inspiration for my designs are mostly from our beautiful travels though the world or just from nature around the corner, every simple thing you see can be an inspiration. I have been an agent for baby en childrenclothing for a long time, so this is one of my sources for inspiration too. I love playful, colour, and happy but also sweet, pleasant, cozy and vintage.
I hope to inspire you with my designs and brighten up your day! to inspire ypu to be creative and hope you will have just as much fun as I with every ball of yarn!!
