Inside a Solo Artisan's Week: Crafting Handmade Treasures

Inside a Solo Artisan's Week: Crafting Handmade Treasures


Join me on a captivating week-long journey as I wear multiple hats, embracing the joys and challenges of crafting unique treasures such as unique,  Handmade Cushions  Fabric Baskets, British Wildlife Crossbody Bags, and Rabbit Notebook Covers.

Monday Morning Hustle

The week kicks off with a flurry of activity. I start my day by replying to emails from eager customers and fellow artisans, connecting with the creative community that inspires me daily.

Unleashing Creativity

Amidst the buzz, I set aside time to design new items and create templates for future projects. It's a moment of pure inspiration where ideas flow freely.

Navigating the World of SEO

In between stitches, I delve into the world of SEO, learning and implementing strategies to drive more traffic to my website. It's a vital aspect of being a solo artisan in today's digital age.

Behind the Lens

I set up a photo shoot to capture the essence of each creation. With camera in hand, I aim to immortalize the charm of my Handmade Cushions, Handmade Fabric Storage Baskets , and other treasures.

The Art of Editing

With a keen eye for detail, I upload and edit images using Canva, ensuring each piece looks its best before making its debut on my website and social media.

Crafting New Creations

In the sewing room, I immerse myself in the art of crafting new items. From Embroidered British Wildlife Crossbody bags  to enchanting Notebook Covers, every stitch is a labour of love.

Descriptions and Alt Tags

Each creation deserves a fitting description. I spend time crafting compelling narratives for my website, all while adding essential alt tags to the images I use ensure accessibility for all.

Writing Blog Posts

In a moment of reflection, I pen blog posts, sharing the stories and inspirations behind my creations. It's a way to connect with my audience on a deeper level.

Fabric Selection

Choosing the perfect fabric for each creation is a process of its own. I carefully select fabrics that speak to the heart of each piece, adding to their charm.

A Week's Worth of Orders

As the week draws to a close, I dedicate time to carefully pack and post orders, sending my cherished creations to homes near and far.
