This week has been a big week for me, I have had new people like my page. (some of these people I don’t know) which is fantastic as it shows I’m really getting my name and business out to people. I had my first unknown customer,when I say unknown I mean I am not related to the person or friends with them for them to know of what I do. She is an old friend of my cousins, for her sharing my page to her friends and family she asked me in return to like and share her page. This was a fair trade and we both had completely different businesses with the same goal.
Lady W* had asked if I was the woman who could take her daughters baby clothes and make them into a poorly day blanket, I instantly thought YES!! Just the work I have been looking for. I had Lady W* put together 2 bags of clothes, one of the bags were full of the items she loved and favoured that she definitely wanted in the quilt, the second was items she liked but if not needed for the quilt she didn’t mind. I then took these home and started piecing together the parts of each one, working out colours and fabrics and if any had writing or pictures on.
I’ve been cutting up all the pieces sewing them together and making it match. I’m getting a pink fleece to put on the back as she wanted it to be comfy and cosy for when her daughter is poorly.
A few days later a friend of my sisters found out she was having a baby boy, she had seen a type of bunting I made for my nephew for his bedroom. It was his name is soft fabric letters in the style of bunting. I made it purposely for his ‘Welcome to the world’ party. She asked me if I could do the same for her sons name. Thrilled to bits I obviously agreed.
Really feeling proud of what I’m achieving and beginning to build.
