Hello and welcome to Melly Makes
As a little girl I often watched my mom sit behind the sewing machine whipping up our Christmas dresses, Fairy Godmother outfits, power suits for Barbie, pink lacy bags which held our marbles.

Today I make useful everyday items, that I also use myself. Like my mini pouch for public transport cards, that really came from a sense of frustration on my part of always having to grab my wallet at busy train stations. Annoying! After some trials and tweaks the pouch was born, and I still use it, just like the ones in my store, every day.
