It was probably just over a year ago when I really got into sewing. My dad got me a brand new sewing machine for my 19th birthday last year and that started off the addiction. I’ve always loved crafts, creating things, and browsing Pinterest for ideas, but over the last year I realised my love for sewing was the greatest. Ideally, one day, I’d love to own a store. Have my brand name above the door, cute tags on my stock, and loyal customers. Of course, there’s a lot of hard work, time and determination that go into this kind of thing, but now I’m ready to do what it takes.
I first started off by posting photographs of my handmade items on my Facebook profile, and when people I work with, family and friends started to take an interest, I began to sell. I set up a Facebook page and every now and then I’d find a day to make new accessories, and post them on there. Mostly I made, and still do, hair scrunchies. Those bulky hair ties we all used in the 90’s and early 2000’s. I realised quickly that, actually, these were a popular buy. I began to make Christmas themed scrunchies which were up on my page for all of 5 minutes before I had none left.
I’ve now got a Twitter and an Instagram account up and running to help promote my store, and I hope to start creating YouTube videos that contain crafting tutorials. I’d also love to write more blog posts on this venture I’m taking, so I apologise if it’s not your thing. I do have a post up already on how to make the scrunchies so you should definitely give it a read if you’re a crafty person, or fancy trying something new.
I’d really appreciate it if you’d check out my Depop store, where my items are available to buy instantly, and also my Facebook page, where you can send me a message if you’d like to order something! General prices for my scrunchies are:
£3 without ears / £4 with ears / £2 postage on orders with 3 items or less / £3 postage on orders with 4+ items
And here’s links to my store, page and accounts:
Any follows, likes etc are greatly appreciated, and I’d love for you all to see me and my business grow!
