Announcement    IMPORTANT Update 30 November 2022: Royal Mail strikes are taking place today, 30 November and tomorrow, 1 December 2022. There are further Royal Mail strikes due over the next few weeks. I have therefore updated postage costs for U.K. orders & all orders are currently being sent via a tracked service. Until the end of 2022, postage costs for U.K. customers will be flat rate £2.95 via Tracked48, no matter how many items you order, or £3.50 if you wish to upgrade to Tracked24.

Standard second class post will hopefully return in the new year if strikes cease.

* This doesn’t affect international orders, which are already sent tracked and/or signed for.

‼️ NB: Processing/dispatch time is 10-14 days (excluding ready to ship sale items which are sent within 3 working days).

📚 BOOK BUDDY SIZES:

Small (approx 9" x 7") - perfect for standard paperbacks measuring 8" x 5" with up to 550 pages.

Medium (approx 10" x 8") - great for larger/indie paperbacks or small hardbacks. The Book used to model on the majority of photos is 8.75" x 6.5" x 1.25" (375 pages).

Large (approx 11" x 8.5") - for standard hardback books. The Book used the model in the photos measures 9.5" x 6.5" x 1.75" (450 pages).

XL which measure approximately 12" x 9.5" are great for chunky hardbacks or for carrying multiple books at a time.

Please allow up to 14 days for made to order items to be made and dispatched.

Thank you & Happy Shopping!

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 Woody dog to the beach, and learn new crafts. I'm also a fan of the tea towel, British comedies and cake!
