Homemade By Me Boutique was created through my love of making and sewing. As a child I loved drawing, painting and making anything I could and always wanted to become an artist of some sort. In high school I was introduced to sewing, and although we only did it for a short time, I fell in love with it instantly. For my 14thbirthday I was given a basic sewing machine and my passion for the craft just grew and grew. I went on to study Fashion and Textiles at college which gave me the more advanced skills that the internet couldn’t teach me. My determination to form my own business and be self-employed developed from a dream into something that could become a reality. So, in the early months of 2018 I finally made the decision to start the process of making my dream come true. I created a business doing the thing I love most, sewing. It was the prime time to do it, I’d just finished college and still lived at home, so I had the support of my family to help me get on my feet. After some encouragement and a LOT of research I was finally ready to launch the business and took the leap to make my dream come true.
Now I work almost full time doing what I love and have grown and learnt more than I’d ever imagined. Looking back on when I first started my business I have matured and progressed so much as a person and the business has come so far. Even though it’s a lot of hard work, long hours and there is a long way to go, I am enjoying every minute of it. Currently, I sell on Etsy, attend craft fairs and big shows such as mid Devon and this year I took another big step and held a stall at the 2019 Devon county show! I hope the business will continue to grow and that I can make more beautiful creations to be enjoyed by all of you!
Thank you for all the love and support, I look forward to building this business even further and can’t wait to see what the future holds!
