About

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