Okay this week has been a wee bit distracting...hubby flew home, birthday gifts that just have to be played with ;) a sick monkey and the arrival of some bags of loveliness from Em&Femme, Gooseberry Bush Kidz and Matsy Designs...which is naughty I know :)
I had an email this week ...asking why I don't have any stock or custom order spots available ...hmmmm...how to answer :)?
Well...firstly each of my designs is hand stitched and drawn from scratch so takes anything from 1 hour up to 3 hours so I can only really do one a day...add to that Mr Monkey works away, I have 3 monkeys under 5 and I have in naiveté....rather over committed and want to give each piece I have ordered already the time and attention it deserves :)
So...no I wont be doing any custom orders until at least April and probably wont have much stock until then either...BUT...I am constantly thinking of the next design, fabric combo and will keep sharing these with you on Facebook.
And dear liker I hope that the desire for something a bit different and that has been made with a lot of love is enough to keep you interested and that you will be able to grab a custom spot and see some stock soon you like and your monkey will be over the moon ;)
Yes that's right...Mr Monkey too...he I think was intrigued by my new sewing machine...well it is a machine ;) and actually made a very basic drawstring bag...which I will applique for our daughters spare clothes for school...
lots of giggles and rude words were the language of the day ;)
As for me...I was hit by some fabrics and ideas and just had to share them with you :)
So...how about a Babushka (would be OOAK) in these fabrics?
And a girl cheeky monkey in these fabrics?
A pirate ship too sprung to mind...
So although I couldn't get much sewing done today I have been playing & creating
If you have any amazing ideas for the orange and red funky fabric please feel free to comment ;) thinking I may offer up a custom spot using that fabric :) for April of course ;)
