A few years ago I decided that I needed a hobby, I work full time and wanted something completely different to do in my own time. I have always loved Cath Kidston and craft shops and my dream was to be good at something. Someone always told me that everyone has a skill but you have to find what it is. I decided that I would have a go at sewing. I joined a sewing class and I had never used a sewing machine in my life and I started with a coaster. I then decided I would have a go at a cushion cover and then I ventured into bags and curtains. I would say I am still learning but I sell my items on Etsy. I still work full time but this is my relaxation time. My husband converted one of my bedrooms into a sewing room and I sit for hours.
Always believe in your dreams because one day they become reality.

A few years ago I wanted to start doing something that occupied my spare time. I was introduced to sewing and my passion started from there. I absolutely loved it and was giving my items to my family and friends and someone told me to start selling them but I didn’t have much confidence in myself. I plucked up courage and opened my little shop on Etsy called Cottondotty. I’ve made 45 sales and people are starting to love my items. If you want to have a browse give it a go and let me know your thoughts as I’m always happy to receive feedback.
I have been really busy this weekend, I have been looking after my friends dogs an also doing my sewing. I also attended a course on Friday for my start to doing nails.
I love sewing and hopefully one day will have my own business but I can dream. I also read the secret which means you should always think your dreams will happen and they will.
I’ve completed a lovely cushion today for a nursery. I’m so pleased with it. This now adds to my gorgeous cushion collection
