I’ve only gone and done what my other half has been telling me to do for a while, and opened an Etsy shop with my hand made cards.
I’ve been making hand made cards for years but have only sold them in a local Post Office and given them to friends and family. But because I love making them so much I have quite a lot of them and my husband has been saying for a while that I ought to open an online shop with my cards.
I knew I quite fancied the idea but felt that the competition was so great that maybe it wasn’t worth the effort. But I have finally made the leap and opened up Cards By Barmac on Etsy.
So here are a few made earlier. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated, just as long as it’s good. No, only joking the more reviews I get the harder I will try.
Obviously there are lots more but I shall keep popping some on here for you to look through. Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
It all started with this cream and black one which was a piece of fabric I found in the ‘fabric ends’ bag for £1 – it just fitted the cushion I had for the bedroom (which is all cream and black) and I had enough braid left from my previous projects, to put it down each side.
My sewing machine broke down making this first one but I decided to just make them by hand instead, and the second one I made was another piece of fabric from the same ‘fabric ends’ bag again for £1.
I decided to add some buttons to each corner for this one, just to give it a different look. I then had the bug and I went to Dunelm Mill to have a look at what they had in their ‘end of line’ bags.
I couldn’t find anything I liked in that bag except for some cream rope braid which was a £1 so I bought that but found two lovely fabrics which I really loved. You could buy them in half metres and so the next two I made were the ones below.
Finally the last two I have made (so far) were these two checked ones (below) for my bedroom. I haven’t put a zip in any of them but finished them with invisible thread instead. I can easily unpick that when they need a wash.
I’ve got another couple to make yet from the £1 bag but I am really pleased with these. What do you think? …..
