Small and mighty

posted in: Instagram 0

When @samburgessuk got in touch and asked if I’d be interested in appearing on her Small and podcast, my exact words were I’m honoured, but I don’t think I’d be very interesting to listen to (I told you I needed to work on the imposter syndrome thing)
Well hopefully I AM interesting to listen to, because you can listen to the episode where we had a chat about me, my business and Instagram today!
Which is fortunate as I was quite stumped as to what to write for today’s prompt for #marchmeetthemaker, which is about collaboration.
Happy listening! Emma xxx

Believe in yourself

posted in: Instagram 0

Did you know that the chance of you existing is pretty well non existent? The probability is 1 in 10 to the power of 2,695,000 (yes that’s right, a ten followed by 2,695,000 zeros) which means, by default, you really are pretty amazing. Now that we have established just how brilliant you are, I don’t think there’s much point in doubting yourself is there?

I spent all day yesterday making flags, and this is my new favourite! The listings will be live later today, but just drop me a message if you’d like one x

The amazing journey of an order

posted in: Instagram 0

Since I made the new thank you order that I put in with all of my orders, I’ve had almost as many messages about the note as I have about the products I’ve sent out. Because of that, I thought the next thing I had to make was a similar picture for other small businesses – not a thank you note, but a picture showing the amazing journey of an order. And here it is! I hope you like it!

This is hot off the sewing machine, but I’ll be making prints, so if you’d like to be the first to know when these come in to stock, please sign up to my newsletter (there’s a link in the bio 😊💌) .
Happy Tuesday xxx

Fly the flag for small business

posted in: Instagram 0

It’s reaching that time of year where we’re starting to think about Christmas – whether it’s frantically prepping for fairs, shop and online sales, starting to see flurries of orders coming in 🤞, or writing lists of things to gift. .
Whatever the reason, a shop small badge is the perfect addition to your cardie to wave the small (but mighty) flag for the small (but mighty) businesses. I have maker versions like this, which I splattered in paint or my regular blue, both of which are free motion embroidered with the teeny tiniest writing and available on my website. .
Fly the flag for small businesses 🚩

Happy dance

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a work in progress shot, so I thought I’d show you a little snippet of a new note picture that I’ve been working on. This one is called The amazing journey of an order. I decided to make it after all of the lovely comments and photo shares I get for my Thank you slip that I put in with my own orders
.
I obviously couldn’t leave out that happy dance feeling, and because it really does make me feel very happy getting an order I added a sparkly disco ball! .
Wishing you a Wednesday filled with disco ball moments!! Emma xx

Playing with paint

posted in: Instagram 0

I had great fun splattering fabric paint 🎨 over material, my workshop and all over myself yesterday (sadly it was only once I got home from the school run that I realised I had been sporting a yellow eyebrow 🤪) I wanted to make some maker badges that looked like they were cut from a painters apron – like a maker had made them 😊. There are a few different wording options, which I’ve listed over on my website now.
Have a great day xxx

Makers banner

posted in: Instagram 0

I’m so pleased that my makers banners are getting lots of love, because I really love them too! My main criteria for printing on to fabric was that I really wanted the option of being able to personalise/embellish the final piece, and I’m just loving all the words of wisdom that you’re asking me to sew!
.
There is still another week until half term here, but I’ve already got my next design planned out, so that I can grab any quiet moments to bring it to life 🗺
