Thanks to a couple of my close girlfriends here on island, who literally took it upon themselves to pitch my fabric goods to our local home decorting store House, I am now actually doing something a little more worthwhile with my sewing hobby. The shop outright bought a huge batch of bunting from me, as well as a number of custom name ones as gifts for children back in the UK. It has definitely kept me busy for the last few weeks! And what a satisfying experience as well. After complaining often about the little to no choice of locally made items, not to mention the lack of quality baby and children’s things, I feel proud to be doing something to change matters. I’m quite interested in creating beyond the bunting, and House seems eager to see what else I can do, so we’ll see what happens. But for now, I am very pleased with what I have done so far and getting a little pocket money in return is certainly helpful.
