During lockdown I decided to put my design and making skills to good use by simultaneously expanding my portfolio and earning some income. I started to take on private commissions for bespoke and unique hand embroidered items.

The products in my repertoire were mainly cushions, headbands and scrunchies. I marketed myself by making a couple of things as presents for friends, and uploading images and information about the items to drum up more interest. For this I used both my own social media, and good old fashioned word of mouth from the people whom I gifted items to. This worked really well for me as it lead to a steady stream of clients ordering bespoke items. I personally saw the strange time that we faced, and continue to face, as an opportunity. I developed skills and learned a lot along the way.

Here are some of the hand embroidered products I created in this time; have a browse, and if you have any queries, please do get in touch!
