About

Hello from "sunny" Northern Ireland! And welcome to Monkey Wishes. I am Debbie - owner, "creative genius" and everything else there is behind the enterprise. I'm often asked how Monkey Wishes came about, well, that one, is easy...
My intention was always to be a STAY-at-home Mum, but when reality hit and the arrival of small person number 1 was imminent, I realised I could, quite possibly, be a WORK-at-home Mum. People might actually want to pay me to make pretty things for their home, self or child, maybe... The idea for the name came as I drew my birth announcement cards - the monkey that now serves as my shop logo. And so, "Monkey Wishes" was born in February 2009, followed closely by my daughter in March.

It all started on a sewing machine borrowed from my Mum, then over time, expanded to include an embroidery machine, my own sewing machine (Mum finally had hers returned with a lot more "miles" on the clock than when she had last seen it!) and an overlocker, and with another baby thrown into the mix (a boy) in 2012, life got even more interesting! Skip forward a few years, a few tears and more than a few fabulous customers, and here we are... Same monkey, same maker, now offering a mix of funky and fun ready-to-ship and custom items, handmade in my little dedicated crafting corner, along with a selection of supplies and even patterns straight from that little part of my brain that occasionally has a great* idea.

*my opinion - I hope you agree!

    Debbie, that's me, is everything Monkey Wishes. If you email, I will answer, every stitch is completed by me & every parcel packed by my own fair hand. When I am not Monkey Wishes-ing, I can be found mothering two small people, a husband and a dog.
