Is Fun Quirky Bespoke cushions with a small selection of bags and homewares to brighten up your life in a array of colour!
Some would suggest my style is not for the faint hearted.
Yes that does mean it will be bright and my mum would even go as far to say gordy! Not a word that I would like associated with my MoGirl DESIGNS image – but to some, this may sum up my thing. I like to think I am more…. Quirky.
I will be straight up, experience has taught me I am not the best blogger in the world, but I do try and touch in at lest once a month. I get a little to side tracked with other things and never have enough hours in the day -to do the day job, look after the family and house and build my empire. I have slightly more luck with my face book page. (It sends me nasty reminders to post something) http://www.facebook.com/MoGirlDESIGNS
So here, you won’t find the most often blogger in the world. There will be spelling mistakes. At 40; as hard as I try, I still discover them after I have posted stuff.
But what you will find, is someone who loves to make things. A little loud and bright. I love to bring a smile to people.
You will hear about my fabric finds when I go off to the designer fabric sales and then catalogue of all my finds on my Pinterest page. If there is something you like, message me and I can make you a custom order from my stash. http://www.pinterest.com/ma3424/ I don’t make up all my fabric as I keep bits for those special size custom orders.
I love taking custom order and create a bespoke cushion collections. I am more than happy to buy in for you a piece of designer fabric and make to your request or make you something ‘a little mad’.
I recently did just thats recently, a fun collection of patchwork cushion to be used as part of a bedhead. Yes, they were a little mad, it could have gone either way – but they were a hit and it sums up what I love to create.
In my Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MoGirlDESIGNS you will find all my cushions. I make beautiful vibrant velvets and lovely linens cushion covers. I try to carry a little out of the ordinary fabric from all the top designers. I buy remnants and end of bits at sales to keep my prices competitive.
I now run my etsy shop and ‘make’ along with my part time day job. I have done my share of craft fairs and to be honest, I know it should be an enjoyable experience, but I find the whole thing super stressful. I have decided that for the time being I am not going to do any so I have opened a Folksy shop http://www.folksy.com/shops/MoGirlDESIGNS to clear out all my craft fair bits and bobs. Its not going to sell itself sitting in boxes in the spare room.
In a nut shell, I am a fabric horder and find making things therapeutic. It keeps me sane. I don’t think I will ever make my millions from selling on etsy but I do part time what gives me pleasure and the other half of the time, what I have to do, to pay the bills.
I would rather make than blog.
So if you don’t hear from me for while, you know why. I am under a mound of fabric, busy creating that custom order, making stock to get listed in my shop, making myself a cheeky something. (It doesn’t happen often, but I deserve something nice too..) or possible having a day off and walking my mate Jam.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
