{Design Team} Introducing....Elli From Heartstitch

Good Morning, I hope it is sunny where you are because we have blue skies and lots of sunshine here at The Sewing Boutique HQ!

The first products have gone out to our Design Team so I thought I would introduce them to you over the next few days.

First up, Elli from Heartstitch.

"Hi, my name is Elli and I run Heartstitch, which is based in Plymouth, Devon, but I am originally from Dorset.  I started Heartstitch as something to do when taking a break from training to be a teacher - and I've not looked back since! I love to create cute things using felt, fabric, pens and a little imagination!

My favourite type of craft is sewing - preferably hand sewing, but if the machine is working I don't mind using that too! Most of my work is all hand sewn, which takes a little longer - but I think it's worth it! When I get a little spare time (rarely!) I do like to tackle an embroidery - you won't see any bouquets of flowers - I'm more likely to be stitching unicorns!

My second love has to be illustration - which I am trying my best to spend more time on.  I'll give anything a try though!  My favourite medium is paper - I can draw anything on it! But I do love fabric - you can make so many things with it and there's so much variety! 
When I'm not crafting (not often!) I like to 'hang out' with the other half and our two little kitty shaped furballs. I'm a sucker for bad telly and video games!"

Im sure you'll agree, Elli's makes and illustrations are gorgeous and she is a very talented designer/maker.  More of them can be found over on her Facebook page.  We are really excited to have her on our Design Team and really excited to see her makes in the future!
