I’ve been passionate about needlecrafts all my life and made many practical and some not-so-practical items with love and care receiving praise that’s inspired me to expand my boundaries.
Some years ago, when my children were small, I designed an eco-friendly version to Barbie dolls and have been selling the knitting patterns online for everyone to enjoy for some time.
Recently I taught myself to crochet – not sure why it’s taken me so long, but there you go!
And crocheting has taken over my world. I’ve made robins for Christmas trees, mushroom lighter holders and various other fun things. But now I’m getting a little more serious.
I’ve had some great feedback for my Pocket Bags, and I’d like to get them up online soon but I need a little help with the presentation.
This is the front and the back design of the folded card that will be in the gift box. (draft design – not yet confirmed)
And this is the inside design of the folded card. (draft design – not yet confirmed)
I have all the yarn I need and many of the bags already made so I just need a little help with the boxes, mailing bags and info cards…
Recent world and personal events have left my bank account struggling and, although I would love to have £150 spare at the moment, it isn’t there ☹ I could probably raise the cash from family and friends but one important part of this campaign is to help support small and local business’ so showcasing it on Crowdfunder seems like a good way to get the word out!
Pocket Bags will be published on a new alternative to Etsy website in the UK (Home of the Mall) as soon as packaging is available and will be priced at £7.50 each + postage.
There’s scope here for expanding a small local business, providing jobs and also having some gorgeous hand-made gifts circulating so if you can help support this project, it could mean joy and support for many people.
The initial product line will have six different colour options although there is room here for more colour choices on an individual basis or as a new line if found to be a popular request.
