i am hand-made

i'm really excited to be writing this post, it finally feels like my little shop ideas are coming together, and i'm hoping to launch it very soon :)
i've decided to name the shop "i am hand-made" after my last ever uni project. it is still one of my favourite projects, and one that i feel reflects me the best.

for now, i will only be selling cross stitches, but eventually i'm hoping to have knitwear accessories and cards/prints. as i said before, i'm totally open to custom orders- just pop me an email and i can start drawing designs up.
for now, here are a few more designs that i've been working on... let me know what you think!


  1. Love love love the name, it's really simple but it tells people exactly what you're shop is about. Hogwarts crest...so cute! I love all of these designs.
    Once you're shop is set up I'll definitely be popping a link to it on my blog x

  2. They are ADORABLE! I love the coffee one.and the phone one.ALL of them!! Your so clever,do you just draw them on the material and then stitch the picture? I love the name too,that'll look so nice on the tags and labels,its fitting since they will all be handmade.
    So proud of how well you've done planning it all and so happy its all coming together now :) You know where I am if you need any help :) xx

  3. These are fantastic, well done - love seeing other people's creations. Love it. x

  4. These are adorable! Love how a bit of harry potter is slipped in there
