I’ve launched another crafty business…hoorahh!

As if all my crafting is not keeping me busy enough, I’ve only gone and started another craft business…

Myself, and friend (and now business partner) Sam have been in the planning stages for what feels like ages in order to start our business Love Me Sew – which has now officially begun!

Love Me Sew is an online fabric shop selling lots of lovely fabrics chosen by us (they are pretty cute…and it’s taking all my efforts not to create them into something for myself since they are all stored in my sewing room at home!)…please visit our website and have a browse (or, even better, buy!).

It’s been a long time in the making, but we are pretty chuffed with the website. As regular fabric buyers, we know how difficult it is to get that perfect fabric online when you can only see in on-screen instead for real and not having the ability to see the exact colour or feel the quality.


To help make the online shopping experience better for other fellow crafters, like ourselves, we though about what things we could provide to improve this – we came up with the ability to create mood boards – to see what different fabrics would look like together, with the additional advantage of seeing what they make look like as bunting or as a patchwork quilt…

To help people see the exact size of the print and also give others ideas of what to make, we included a ‘Your Creations‘ section – where we are asking people to send us a picture of things they make using our fabric and we will add it to the website, giving a free bundle to the ones we think deserve a ‘star creation’.

 

As well as the fabric, we are also running workshops, or Crafternoons as we like to call them, for hen dos (one for all you lovely brides who like to look at my blog for wedding inspiration!), baby showers, workplace events, or any other social activity for people who like to craft.

Check out the baby showers…these are our favourites!

So this is just the beginning! We have loads of other things we are working on to develop our business (as well as getting lots more lovely fabric for the website) so I guess it’s just a case of please take a look at the website and follow our blog to keep up with all the bits and bobs we’re doing…exciting times!

Featured on Adore by Chloe

I met Chloe off of ‘Adore By Chloe‘ last October when I exhibited at the Save the Date Magazine Wedding Event with a Difference at the Round House in Derby. Chloe was sponsoring the ‘Creative Corner’ of the event.

Just before Christmas, Chloe then email to ask if I wanted to feature a couple of DIY tutorials on her blog. I was really honoured that she’d asked me as there are some truely lovely content that get featured on her blog that’s all do to with creative and DIY weddings.

I decided for my first tutorial to do Hen Do Flower Rosettes; something that I first made over a year ago now for my friend Sarah’s hen do. You can see the full blog post, as well as lots of other fab posts over on Chloe’s website.

I have yet to do the second post, which will be some kind of bridesmaid bag…
