This is on a “just in case” basis - I will continue to work to the usual 10-14 days turnaround time but the additional time allowance will give me sufficient time to both make and dispatch orders should I or a member of my family find ourselves having to self isolate, without having to contact each customer individually to extend shipping times. International shipping is now on a tracked basis only and your tracking number will be included in your dispatch notification. Thank you for supporting my small business and for your (potential) patience - stay safe, you lovely lot! ***

Sewing at the Dining Table

Hello, I'm Melanie and I sell my handmade goods in my Etsy shop, Melvis Makes. I can often be found taking over the dining table with my sewing machine!

I started sewing in my teenage years, studying Textiles at GCSE and a Fashion and Textiles Art A Level. I didn't own a sewing machine myself until my late twenties when someone donated an old 'Jones' to my cause. I've since upgraded to a snazzy little electric Toyota as well as a lovely John Lewis mint green machine and haven't stopped sewing since.

I am a lover of bright and colourful cotton fabrics and my aim is to make beautiful, unique products that you won't find elsewhere. I work with a variety of fabric designs and patterns, along with a large range of coordinating blending fabrics, threads, zippers, ribbons and other additions.

I use a combination of designer and everyday 100% cotton fabrics and I regularly research and purchase new fabric designs.

In my Etsy shop you'll find an assortment of storage bags, craft & home storage ideas, purses, sewing & knitting accessories, and shortly there will be a variety of other products arriving. If there's something you'd like to see me stock, or you'd like to arrange a custom order, get in touch and I'll see what I can do!

I work part time in the "day job" and run my Etsy shop around that. When I do get some free time, I love to read romance & chick lit novels, take Izzy dog to the beach, and learn new crafts. I'm also a fan of the tea towel, British comedies and cake!
