About

A girl who loves to create new things and started a shop from a school project . . . .

Hi, I'm Jade and I make felt dolls that go by the name of StitchUps (^_^)!!
((This is a pretty long story about how my StitchUps came about - if you want to read it, I hope it doesn't bore you!!))


I started making felt dolls in my final years of school as a personal art project. I made 2 characters ((very poorly!!)), a bear and a voodoo doll ((naturally (^_~)..)) and created a story. It was a lot of fun and I still have the dolls and story now, here at home.

When I left school soon after, I had a lot of spare time on my hands and was getting bored fast, despite the fact that I'd be going to college soon. I thought back to school and my dolls and remembered how much fun I had had, designing and creating those little felt dolls.

The next week my dad took me around a small town with a great craft shop - which I ran straight in (^_~)!! They had everything I needed to make more of my dolls - great!! So I started collecting different coloured felt sheets, cottons, buttons and accessories, toy-filling, glue, needles and tiny bows.. The shop was very well priced, too, and I had just got some early birthday money, so I took all of this straight up to the till ((dropping half of it, as I never think to grab a basket ;S)), when my Dad walked in and handed the cashier a £20 note, just as I was getting my money ready..!! So, in the end, Dad paid for my first tools and accessories that turned into a huge hobby and that I have now spent £100s on, simply because I love it!!

After a couple of months of making my dolls at home, Dad asked me if they had a name. I hadn't even given it any thought!! So we brainstormed for a couple of days, and suddenly he came out with "StitchUps" - so they now have a name, too!!

I made dolls for friends and family, a couple of people were paying me to make them and suggested that I should be selling them to the general public.. So I made some flyers and would post them around the local villages and town. I didn't really know any other way. I gave a few to companies and asked people to display them. I included my email address and within a couple of weeks, I received 3 orders. My largest order was for 2 personalized dolls and about 12 mini personalized Christmas stockings!! I got excited and started stitching and sewing that day!!

So now, it's a few years later and I'm still making my StitchUps, creating hundreds of my own designs and taking personalized orders, too. If you'd like to know more, design your own doll ((if it's not already on my page)) or just generally chat about art and crafts, email me at: Jadesparx [!at] hotmail.com . Looking forward to hearing from you!!

Thank you if you've read this far \(^_^)/ I hope to speak with you soon!!
